Selective Herbicide for Violet & Ground Ivy Control

What are violets?
Violets are considered an annual in cool season climates and a perennial in warmer climates. Perennial types have rhizomes or long stolons, heart-shaped leaves on long petioles, and purplish-white flowers; annual types can have irregular-shaped leaves, hairy stem with light yellow to purple flowers. It is a nasty and sometimes impossible broadleaf weed (dicot) to control.  Its waxy leaves make liquid herbicides roll off it, as on the finish of a new car.

Our fertilizing program includes three selective herbicides to control a broad range of broadleaf weeds. With our program we have experienced medium control of violets. We recommend (between regular treatments), additional violet control so that the plant will not have a chance to recover between applications. We are unable to give you a specific number of applications needed to fully control them. Overall price will vary; each application will be a separate charge.

Fords Hometown Services is the only known Lawn Company who still presently possesses an off the market chemical (Confront) know for good violet control. We purchased all the remaining stock in the area.

It is recommended to eliminate any violets from your property. If they are in your flowerbeds, we do not spray the beds with this service. We do offer a hand selective spray for such areas. This is offered at an additional charge.

If you are not on our fertilizing programs, we recommend a minimum of three services approximately 4 weeks days apart according to label.
