Why Do Weeds Grow Faster Than Grass? (Solved)

Weeds tend to grow faster than grass in your lawn or garden because:

Most weeds have a short life cycle ranging between 5-6 weeks. Thus, they cover their life cycle from seedling to flowering in a short time.

Weeds sprout from existing seeds or root systems in the soil. Dormant root systems store a lot of energy which enhances the fast growth of weeds in spring.

Weeds are often native plants in the ecosystem they thrive in, which further facilitates their growth compared to grass and other desirable plants which may not be native.

Grass grows taller and forms clumps, The stems turn woody, and the grass pushes out a seed head. This creates patchy areas within the lawn. Nutrients are used and not replaced, and this provides the appropriate conditions for weeds to germinate. Eventually, the lawn will be overrun by weeds and return to a natural state.
