Weeds are certain plants designated as weedy or invasive, or with the potential to become weedy or invasive. Some weeds are even identified as noxious.
The term weed is subjective in that a weed is often classified as such by its context -meaning it is unwanted in its location. It may be considered a weed in a flowerbed, but a wildflower in a meadow.
Weeds are easy to grow if you'll just stop fighting them.
Weeds generally possess advantageous adaptations that allow them to grow in the face of neglect, abuse, drought, and hoeing. This doesn't mean you can't kill weeds, though, so be careful!
Weeds make easy, no-maintenance ground covers to hold topsoil. They also send down long taproots that bring up water and nutrients and break up hard ground. They're used in many natural remedies, and also can make beautiful cutting arrangements. The main trouble with weeds is attitude - yours!

Six Tips for Growing Great Weeds:
1. For God's sake, leave them alone! And whatever you do, don't squirt with them with that weed killer stuff. It's called WEED KILLER for a reason.
2. Don't water them. They don't need it. Weeds are the Earth's most efficient plants. Why conservation and going-green groups don't take up for them more, I don't know. They are the kings of preserving our planet's water resources.
