Keeping weeds in check is one of a gardener's most difficult tasks. Invasive plant species are not only an aesthetic nuisance, they can also quickly ruin the hard work you've put into maintaining your garden.

All About Weeds
Any plant that occurs where it is not wanted can be considered a weed. For gardeners, weeds are persistent, highly competitive pests that interfere with the growth of desired plants. Weeds compete for available water, sunshine, growing space and nutrients in the soil. They can also damage your plants by being a carrier for diseases. Of the approximately 250,000 species of plant world wide, 3% exhibit behavior consistent with what is commonly defined as a weed.
