Hard to tell from that photo.....miscanthus sinensis, or "morning light" would be my guess.
Do the blades have white leaf margins making it look silver from a distance?

We need a better pic.

Doesn't look like it's seeded out, or, if it has, it has been planted in horrible conditions and isn't growing well.

Judging by the decline (if the pic is up to date) then it's a reed grass of some sort.
