This kind of space division can be achieved either in a straight-forward way, by using a solid barrier such as a wall, hedge or fence, or by using some kind of open garden screen that partially blocks a view but beckons you on with a glimpse of things to come.

What Is Weed?

What Is Weed?

A weed is a plant growing in the wrong place, and in the lawn that means any plant which is not a variety of grass recommended for turf production. It is not unusual to see a newly-sown lawn infested with a wide variety of common weeds.

When the lawn is established, however, the introduction of regular mowing brings about a spectacular change in the weed population. Most types cannot stand up to the destructive action of the whirling blades and so they steadily disappear. Many of the hard-to-kill nuisances of the flower border, such as couch grass, ground elder, bindweed and nettle are unable to exist in the cared-for lawn.
