The leaf on the right is the most prolific. I noticed it in a neighbor’s yard in the early spring. It has virtually taken over 1/2 my front lawn (divided by a concrete walkway), but has now crossed over and is quickly spreading. It looks very similar to creeping charlie, but not exactly. I would certainly appreciate you help in identifying these plant as well as your thoughts on the best way to get rid of them without killing the lawn grass.

Thank you!

    The one of the right I know as Ground Ivy. Your best bet is to move house.

    Not sure about the middle but the one on the left is violet. That will take over the bits of your garden that the ground ivy leaves open.
