No you don't, due to they go everywhere. I also have Lilly of the Valley, which is a pain to get rid of, along with some other aggressive species. Only way to get rid of them, is to either use heavy herbicide, or make sure that you dig deep enough to eliminate them.

After you take pictures of them, I think it'd be good to chop of stems (not with weed wacker that will disperse seeds) but with knife/scissors or something while waiting for chemicals to have their affect.

That will not work, due to the seed pods are actually below the surface of the dirt, not up on the stems. Only way to get rid of Wild Violet, is by digging out about a foot to loosen the soil, and about a foot deep to remove the whole plant, which includes root structure.

What about the flowers? They have nothing?

Digging? Sounds ugly. What about poison?

The flowers are just that. Poison will kill everything around them, but if you do like I did, and call Chemlawn, it will keep them down to the point they do not come back. Of course, my neighbors around me have them worst then what I did.

It is also good to elimate pet odors and it removes rust as well..

Vinegar is good, but you must dilute it, 1:10 ratio maybe.

Constantchange,

What is the rest of the lawn like?
That picture doesnt really show what type of grass you have there.
Where it is a small area, if the rest of the lawn is not desirable grasses you could spray the entire area with round up.
Then slice seed/aerate & overseed and start over.
