Violets are tenacious plants. An herbicide rated for violets but safe for lawn grass is what you want. Weed-B-Gon is one brand.

Follow the instructions given for violet control. Then improve your lawn care with appropriate fertilizer and watering and mow at 3-4" in height during summer. A lush lawn resists weed invasion imperfectly but it helps.
