Is it against the law to let dandelions go to seed in my yard?

Thank you for your question about dandelions. Unfortunately, neither the Extension offices nor OSU are able to give you legal advice about your question, nor whether leaving them to go to seed might constitute some nuisance law violation. You should seek information from the City (if you are in city limits) or the county (if you are not) to ask about their nuisance or weed abatement laws, or any other regulations that may govern this subject. Good luck!

Thank you-
I'll do that. Have a great day !
