comment Is there an enzyme/compound I can use to quickly rot fallen fruit?
and if you do intend to do something with the fruit you pick, it's even more important to keep the ground under it clear. Our cherries were so wormy until we learned to clear away fallen fruit - then we not only had a nicer lawn, the next year we had nicer cherries!

comment What is a practical strategy for removing dandelions and bull-thistle from my lawn without them returning?
Other answers were about being grass only and about herbicides. I wanted to provide another viewpoint. Glad to hear you share it.
