If you were to track every hour spent in your garden, you would probably find that you do an inordinate amount of weeding. And while the first few weeks of tearing up these intruders can prove mildly satisfying, the chore soon wears thin.
Weeds are plants out of place. A plant may be desirable in one situation and a weed in another.
For example, creeping bentgrass plants can invade a Kentucky bluegrass lawn and cause unsightly patches.
Weeds are nature’s healing remedy for sites that are in a wounded, plantless state, but weeds and gardeners have different ideas of what makes for a good recovery.
