Is there a word or phrase for "weeds replacing non-weeds"?

The only way I can see someone express such idea is with the phrase "weeds invaded crop/field/etc.", but I am pretty sure there was another expression or word to express this idea more eloquently, but I can't remember it.

    You might say "My garden is overrun with weeds." – Jack O'Flaherty May 14 at 22:29
