"Despite what developers will tell you about restoration, she said, once a piece of land is graded, the biologic organisms and understructure of the soil are destroyed. 'No one knows how to easily re-create that, short of years of hand-weeding. Leaving land alone doesn't work; the natives are overwhelmed by the invaders.'
