Violets - Unstoppable weeds

May 7, 2008

I have a rather weedy lawn that I am trying to improve. I am getting a handle on the dandelions and plantains with hand digging,(and our guinea pigs eat them), but the violets are a real problem. They are difficult to dig out without leaving a hole. The seeds get into the gardens and I spend much time weeding them out.

What can I do? I don't need a "perfect" lawn, I do not want to resort to chemicals. I've read that corn gluten meal is not effective on violets, is that true?
