    Hi All,
    I've got an area over our septic that is really hard to mow because it is very rocky and uneven. My plan is to cut down these weeds, cover it all in a think layer of old hay, and seed pollinator flowers there. But before I cut them down, I thought I'd ask, are any of these weeds useful in any way? Are they good for natural compresses or for bees or moths ? Any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks, @Britesea I actually thought of you when I posted this! My local extension office has been disappointingly unhelpful on area plants, and seem surprised when I bring up things on their own website... They did point me in the right direction for free trees earlier this year, so I'll commend them for that.
