Help With Identifying Common Types of Weeds

By

Use these weed pictures to aid you in your identification of some common types of weeds. Once you've identified nuisance plants using my pics, you can more readily access information on eradication (since research requires names). In some cases, however, finding out more about the plants in question may persuade you to show more tolerance toward them. There are even some edible weeds. My weed pictures are supplemented by links to additional resources that will help you figure out:

  1. Which ones it would be worth your time to remove, versus which ones don't cause much harm (and may even have beneficial aspects).
  2. How best to go about removing them (in the case of the nuisance plants that you decide must go).
