Unwanted and difficult to control are two of the best ways to describe weeds. Plants that grow where they are not wanted are weeds; they seem to pop-up overnight and spread throughout our yards in the blink of an eye.
The negatives of weeds outweigh their benefits, making them unwelcome in our yards. One of the most common type of weed to grow in Florida and Alabama yards is the broadleaf weed. Some examples of broadleaf weeds include clover, dandelion, chickweed, and dollarweed.
Broadleaf weeds have flat, broad leaves that emerge from the plant’s stalk, usually in pairs. They tend to have very noticeable veins running through the leaves. These weeds often produce flowers to mask their identity as unwanted plants.
In most cases, weeds do not pose any direct danger to people or our pets, but they do cause our lawns to look less than perfect. Nothing can ruin a lush, soft lawn like patches of prickly, unsightly weeds. Besides not always looking nice, weeds block the sun and take away the water and nutrients that grass needs to grow and remain healthy.
Other problems associated with weeds include:
Weeds are competitive and naturally take over areas. Some features of weeds which make them problematic in our yards include:
What makes weeds so tricky to control is that, depending on the species, they can grow almost anywhere, including wide-open sunny areas, shady spots, dry locations, or wet locations. Something almost all weeds have in common is that a well-maintained and fertilized lawn, free of bare spots, is not a lawn where weeds grow well.
