Weeds can simply be defined as unwanted plants or plants growing out of place. The proper identification of weeds and some understanding of how and why weeds are present in a lawn are important in selecting the best control strategy. Knowledge of whether or not weeds were previously present in a particular area will also help the homeowner prepare for control procedures in the future. Weed control should be a carefully planned and coordinated program instead of a hit-or-miss operation. This document is ENH884, one of a series of the Environmental Horticulture Department, Florida Cooperative Extension Service, Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, University of Florida.
