Highway 190/East Causeway Triangle Wildflower Project

The City of Mandeville has contracted with the firm of Dufreche-Perkins and Associates, LLC to develop a landscape plan for the large area of open space at the intersection of East Causeway Approach and U.S. Highway 190.

The overall concept includes reestablishing a landscape on the area’s native ecosystem, the long leaf Pine Savannah and a native-plan community, consisting of native wildflowers.  The City has contracted with MeadowMakers to implement the native wildflower portion of this plan.

Overall, the plan will include planting of Longleaf Pines, Live Oaks and Red Oaks on the perimeter of the site and native wildflowers on the interior of the site.

The project will provide over a hundred species of the native wildflowers.  This understory planting mix will undergo a transformative process in the first few years, as the native plants out-compete any weed establishment.  In lieu of the natural yearly burn cycle the local landscape originally thrived in, a onetime burn and a once per year cutback of the wildflower area will be the only long term maintenance commitment.  This may result in the area appearing "unkept” for the first few years; however, once established, this wildflower area will provide an appropriate beautification for all to enjoy.
