Weeds are competitive, fighting your garden plants or lawn grass for water, light, nutrients and space. Usually, weeds grow quickly taking over many of the open areas. Weeds thrive in favorable conditions and can be found growing anywhere the ground has been disturbed. In addition, they offer clues about your soil conditions. An example would be plantain. This stubborn weed often grows in compacted, heavy clay and well trafficked areas with low fertility.
