Generally speaking, weeds are plants that provide no value, in terms of food or nutrients or visual appeal to your lawn. They spread rapidly and once their roots take hold, they become stronger and much harder to eliminate. These weeds also become much more aggressive over time. The sooner you take action against weeds in your yard, the easier it is to get rid of them and keep them gone.

Simply put, weeds choke out your grass and kill it by depriving it of much-needed space, nutrients, and light. Weeds also compete with flowers, vegetables and other plants for water, nutrients, and sunlight.
