Understanding Weeds

Weeds are self-seeking plants that grow wherever they can find the space in your garden, and love to call your lawn home. Any species belonging to the plant kingdom which includes ferns, trees and algae can be classified as a weed. Many plants formerly used as crops, culinary and medicinal herbs, and ornamentals are present-day weeds. If you watch the wind blowing, you will see weed seeds within the gust of wind that then drop
into your garden.
