RFI - Planting a Large Amount of Grass Seed
Recently, the government has taken some of my family's farm via eminent domain and built a road througth it. Needless to say it has been a very traumatic experience. We are trying to block it off as much as possible. My plan is to plant a few hundred trees.
Recently, an idea came to mind. I want to plant a swath of tall grass in front of where I will plant trees, as a cost effective cover.
My plan is to till a strip about 6-10ft wide and sow grass seed. After some research I have found that a switchass (Panicum virgatum) may be my best choice. The only other options I have come up with is Big Bluestem or Indian Grass.
The area is in full sun, and is relatively dry during the hot summer months. I have a lot of experience with trees and vegetable gardenin but do not know much about grasses, so any advice or guidance would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
