No one likes to have weeds in their lawn. They are unsightly and they can even steal vital nutrients from your lawn, which can and will hinder the health of your grass. Although weeds are undeniably frustrating, you can learn a lot about your lawn from them, like an unbalanced pH or fertility level, unhealthy mowing or watering habits, poor drainage, or soil compaction.
