I dont really have a lawn right now, its more like a garden of dandelions.  Is it okay that I just mow them like I would grass or should I do something about them?

Do the dandelions have tender step or a tough stem?




What interesting knowledge do you have related to the stem tenderness?  You've piqued my interest!

I have seen people point at hawkweed and say "dandelion".  So the first thing to figure out is whether we are talking about dandelions or hawkweed.
