In general sense, weed is a plant that is considered to be a nuisance and normally refer to unwanted plants in human-controlled settings, especially farm fields and gardens, but also lawns, parks, woods and other areas. A weed is a plant in an undesired place, and unwanted for a number of reasons. They might be unsightly or crowd out for more desirable plants, have thorns or prickles, some have chemicals that cause skin irritations or are hazardous if eaten, or have parts that come off and attach to fur or clothes.
