Controlling Violets In Lawns


Violets can become a nuisance weed in some home lawns, often preferring slightly shady conditions they quickly establish, take hold and spread, ruining our lush carpets of green turf. Luckily for the homeowners affected, Violets are now rather easy to control.

Herbicides with an active ingredient called Triclopyr are now readily available to the homeowner for use on lawns. Triclopyr is an excellent herbicide for treating and killing Violets, as well as wild strawberry and ground ivy.

The application should always be as directed on the product label, and results should be seen within 3 weeks.

Caution: Triclopyr should not be used on Centipedegrass, St. Augustine, or Bermudagrass.

Controlling and killing Violets in these warm-season grasses should be done with herbicides containing Atrazine as the active ingredient. There are many options, brands, and products open to the homeowner with this herbicide, many of which may also be labeled as killing Oxalis, Clover, and Chickweed, or marketed as a 3-way weedkiller.

The application should always be as directed on the product label, and results should be seen within 3 weeks.
