NO- ONE told me that weeds grow MUCH better than what I wanted to grow before I started on this @#$$$$$ hobby of gardening.Much of my yard is in shade. Through the summer, every square foot is mowed every 7 days.
At the lowest setting for the mower, it would scrape the ground in several places and likely pull up sod in many locations. I keep it one setting above that height.
The bluegrass grows. Some of the tiniest plants make seed. I obviously pick up some of that seed on my shoes and track it into the garden -- where it sprouts and grows along with other seed from weeds that I track, that blow in, that the birds carry, that sneaks under the fence ... How does one have a garden where weeds are unknown!??
