If the shrubs you planted are very young and small then you may want to use a hoe to keep the wild violets back from the bushes until the bushes have had a season or two to establish themselves. Generally, wild violets don't pose a major problem for established bushes, but they can be a nuisance for your lawn and flowerbeds.
