Weeds tend to the land to provide an ecosystem benefitting all animals and plants in the area, which is supportive by an interconnected web of natural intelligence that we are yet to fully understand. Growing to provide ground cover and adequate nutrients before larger plants can establish. Weeds have other uses such as providing long tap roots to bring moisture to other plants and metabolise essential nutrients like calcium, magnesium iron and potassium for the uptake of other plants. Their root systems are giant networks integrated with each plant providing homes for symbiotic microbes and other organisms that produce healthy bacteria to metabolise nutrients for the plants and soil. Other plants like Gotu kola can be seen growing around areas where it may be very dry or wet and act as an infiltration system to cleanse nutrient before water flows into the dam from onsite sewerage systems.
