We have weeds because we create situations in which they feel at home. In these situations weeds encounter the thing they love most: open ground. Weeds see open ground and they just giggle with delight, and then they get to work procreating.
Weeds do the job of pioneering in open space, to be succeeded by later, larger plants that form a more stable long-term plant community. In this fact lies the answer to the problem of weeds: Create the stable plant community, and the weeds won't show up because their niche is already filled. If you don't believe it, just look at where the weeds grow. You won't find many in unfavorable locations with dense permanent growth.
