violets and clover

Asked June 18, 2017, 5:46 PM EDT

My lawn is relatively healthy, but it has patches of clover and violets that I would like to eliminate before they crowd out the grass. Is there a product or an ingredient in a product that I could look for to subdue them? Thanks!

These weeds are tough to control and you may want to aim in limiting spread. You also need to take a look at conditions that favor growth of these weeds. Look at our website for general chemical control in lawns http://extension.umd.edu/hgic/wild-violet

If you have not tested your soil in the past 3-4 years results will give pH, liming. and nutrient deficiencies.http://extension.umd.edu/hgic/soils/soil-testing
