Blanket or spot spray?

I thought I would ask you guys what you typically do with herbicides. This is my first summer on my 1 acre now. I have a handful of dandelions popping up here and there with more to come I'm presuming. And also some wild violet? From what I can tell, that I also saw last fall as well. Would you guys just pull them, spot or blanket just to get the ones you miss? Otherwise the rest of the yard looks pretty decent. Im thinking walking around pulling would take the same amount of time as just a blanket. I saw my neighbor the other day walking up and down every lawn mower path just spot spraying. Which took him quite some time. And I'm sure he didn't hit every one. What are your thoughts?

Ill be the black sheep. In my front lawn, I like to do a blanket app. I get one of the Ready to Spray Weed B Gon with Crab Control and do the whole lawn. It's so easy in that it hooks right up to the hose and one bottle covers my front and side yard perfectly. Just did it the other night. Now going into summer, I will spot spray as needed with "professional" products.

In the back where my kids play, I spot spray, hand pull, or just let the weeds run wild (until I reno this fall).
