In this area there is a mock bamboo that dies back in the winter but grows vigorously in the spring and becomes a high hedge in late summer. Then it blooms in fall with a very heavy nectar flow when most other plants have stopped booming. It would make an exelent planting to the west of the hives.

I like the height and nectar benefits, for sure.
This year, I am considering getting an Austrian scythe, lured by the videos on the net showing the apparent ease with which mowers dispatch swathes of dense vegetation, the mower in one case being a quite young girl.
