What are weeds?

This one is the second of my HomeOne posts I wanted to share with you :)

According to my grandad, a weed is simply something that grows where you don't want it to. So, the most beautiful rose could be a weed, if it's growing in your brussel sprouts!

Lawns

This is the first of some informational posts I made on the HomeOne Landscape & Garden Design forum at the start of last year and have been given that date (just to confuse you!!).  They've been amended a bit, as my views on some things have changed a little since then, but in general they're the same.  You can check out the forum here.

Without wanting to be too controversial, there seems to be a lot of posts on how to grow a new lawn, revive an old one, what's the best grass, how to kill the weeds in it without the grass etc etc. So many people want a perfect area of flat, healthy green looking, grass with nothing growing in it. Especially it would seem, the dreaded 'clover'.
