Do you love them or do you hate wild violets?
The simplest answer is that you probably love them except when they are growing in your lawn. And that happens a lot, especially if you don’t get your lawn treated. Spraying your lawn to kill violets and other broadleaf plants is a questionable choice to make if you want to encourage bees and butterflies to visit your yard. Most homeowners admire an expanse of velvety green grass that gets mowed and trimmed regularly, but it can be one of the most sterile expanses of green imaginable, wasteful and useless.
