Please help a rookie kill wild violet and white clover

I have these two weeds, (and one other unidentified weed that I will need help later with), and need to get rid of these. Can you tell me what I need to do? Thank you.

clyde, you a homeowner?
If so, contact a local LCO and they will handle it for you.

If not, use a product with Triclopyr for those weeds. TZone is what I am using.
Imprelis absolutely SMOKES those tough-to-kills but it is in deep poo right now.

Drive XLR does rather well on clover and wild violet, include surfactant. Perhaps alternate 7 days apart with a product containing triclopyr and dicamba.

I've had great results with a spot mix of Drive XLR8 and Surge. I just hit the patches that survived from a strait application of Surge earlier in the season.

I've never had that problem. Even in some of the worst CG, the existing grass stays green.

I still have one bottle left of the drive and I am done. It works but you need to apply a sticker or the oil and twice for certain weeds. For CG, never wored all that good for me; but, I think I did apps to thin..

The kicker is the new Drive XLR8 is cheaper then the old, at least for me.

Drive won't work well unless you've got the right surfactant for it. I use Match-Up for it as recommended by my supplier.

I did 3000 square feet yesterday of almost solid CG and all but one little strip I missed was light yellow.

Even when it rains the residual kicks in for even better results.

I think last year I goofed and only put 1/3 the rate on 1 acre and didn't get a complete kill, but excellent stunting and control.
