What type of prairie grass should I plant?
I have a large (25' wide X 225' long) section of yard under a power line that was formerly scrub grass, weeds, and unknown small trees that were cut every few years by the utility's tree company. This spring, it has been scraped clean to bare dirt and is ready to be transformed into whatever I desire. The section of land is heavy clay soil, on the south side of my property and receives heavy, direct sun all day. (See attached photo, which looks west.) I will be planting regular grass seed for the first approximately 75 feet, from the road to my home, but would like to plant a no maintenance, low cost prairie grass for the remainder of this section. Do you have any suggestions? A friend suggested "smooth brome grass" but I wanted to get a second opinion. Thanks for any suggestions you can provide.
