Grass and weeds are a problem because they grow faster and are often taller than young seedlings. They compete with your seedlings for the limited moisture, nutrients, light, and space. Grasses and broadleaf weeds may kill your seedlings. At the very least, they keep seedlings from growing as quickly and vigorously as they would without competition. In addition, a thick stand of grass or weeds next to your seedlings provides habitat for rabbits and rodents who can girdle or cut off your seedlings. The only way to avoid these problems are to control the grass and weeds that cause them.
