To @Support or to not @Support

I am learning front end web development through free resources and low cost options. I learned about progressive enhancement, or it could be called fall back. The author of this book said to build a design in floats/ inline blocks, then again in flex box and again in grid. The reasoning is not all browsers support grid, so a fallback is needed.

Can a professional front end developer give some insight into how and when to provide a fallback?

My goal in learning is to become a front end developer. Industry best practices information is ideal and/or repository examples of fallbacks being done well. All help is much appreciated. Thank you for your response.
