Not as many weeds, and great money!
Here's a hint for those of you with big empty lots overflowing with weeds, and empty wallets in the game. Clear out the field(s) and hoe the ground every five or so squares. Do NOT hoe near the edge of any lot, because eith the tree won't grow, or you won't get the fruit. Do not buy the lot, because the villagers like it when you plant trees on unowned property. Now plant a tree on each hoed spot. Only plant trees that give fruit. Now, you won't have as many weeds on that lot, the people will like you for planting trees in the village, and you can sell lots of fruit! Note that the trees will only bear fruit on their given season. Hope I helped.
