Our "lawn" is full of weeds and we love it. Clovers, pennyroyal, chives, flowers - and a bunch of other things we haven't figured out yet.
I know clovers are good for soil, so when I saw these clovers growing out back by my trees I was excited. Then I realized they were rather long - let's say, "eating" into my kill mulch zone by nearly a foot! and had prickly balls all over them. I started to think these weren't the "good" kind of clovers.
As of right now I've just kind of been scooting them off my kill mulch zone.
Do I need to do anything about these, or just let them be? I know I have invasive weeds (hello, pennyroyal!), but I'm not really wanting to have an all out battle unless it's something that will hurt us/our trees. I really don't want to spray.
There are few things I go out of my way to remove, but they tend to be plants that make my garden less enjoyable for what ever reason.
I know that some people love thistles, stinging nettles, and various thorny plants, but for me they are simply not welcome. There are other, more sociable, plants that could fill those gaps. Ones that don't stop me gardening barefoot!
