Weeds in my lawn

Asked June 17, 2018, 6:36 PM EDT

I have two weeds that ortho weed b gone does not get rid of... I'm not sure what it is, one looks like a grass but not the tall fescue I seed with and the other I think is violet flowers?? I've attached pictures of both.. Can you tell me how to eradicate them from my lawn. Thank you.

1. This is wild violet. These are native and there are certain conditions in the lawn that they like. If you change the conditions, you'll see fewer: https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/wild-violet

2. This is nimblewill, a very tough perennial grass weed. Hard to manage: https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/nimblewill
