ivy in my grass

I put down weed killer twice now. It's done a very good job except for one plant that's all over my front yard. They were intermingled with the violets which are now dead.
I'm pretty certain it's actually ivy now--which resists my weedkiller. How can I rid my grass of ivy?

Ground ivy is nearly impossible to get rid of. I've tried the Borax idea, it didn't do anything. I tried Ortho's weed killer that SUPPOSED to be for ground ivy and after 3 applications the ivy just LAUGHS at it. Pulling I believe is the only way and if you have a LOT, that's out of the question.
Good luck. You're going to need it.
There was something called "Dragon" that was supposed to be good but they went out of business I'm told. Figures.

Iam looking for some advice on ivy. It was cut back last year but has grown quite rapidly any suggestions on how to slow down its growth rate without having to remove it completely Jean Wallace

Yes, if it's ivy it's becoming intractable.
I've been advised by the previous owner that they're part of the violet weeds that were growing their before I used the Ortho weed killer. The violet flower part went away immediately, but the accompanying green leaf did not. Any advice if this is the case?
