I have a private 80 acre parcel with a natural gas pipeline running through it. They have ROW, and keep it cleared- probably trim trees once every five years or so. I am thinking about planting a large portion of it with switchgrass and big blue stem to help screen the direction of the road and cabin, and to break up the property a bit / provide cover. Some people mentioned that the energy company/pipeline maintenance may spray shrub killer every now and then(not sure how that differs from gly) to manage the woody plants that are growing there. I am not sure how this specific chemical would affect switchgrass or BBS. I tried planting sorghum and egyptian wheat in this same area, but neither germinated hardly at all. We have pretty sandy soil, but pH is 6.3. I was wondering if this is a good idea at all, or if there are better options? Having something tall for these few acres that run through would change up the look of our property quite a bit.
