Swath is a word that can be used both a verb and as a noun and when you are using the word as a noun you are conveying the idea of a long strip of land. The word is particularly used for the kind of land from which the crop has been cut. Following sentence can illustrate the meaning of the word in the context: We have a swath of land cut around the edge of the field and you van keep all your machinery over there.

The word can also be used when you intend to convey the idea of a large strip of area of something. The word has its uses in an idiom also and the idiom 'cut a swath through something' is used for the phenomenon of passing thorough a particular area usually by destroying it.
