Street Tree Planting Program:
The City of Mandeville offers a free street tree for residents of the City. This is an initiative under Parks and Parkway's Re-Leaf program. The goal of this program is to encourage tree planting in the public space in front of the residence or business to restore Mandeville's tree canopy. Up to two trees are available at no cost to residents, with an agreement to provide "after care" for the first two years. If interested in this program, please click on link below for an application.
Marigny Ave "Edible Garden" Project
GNOEC Under Pass Project
The Wildflower Project is located in the "triangle" at the intersection of East Causeway Approach and U.S. Hwy 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. Overall, the plan includes 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 provides 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.
Mandeville Parks and Parkways Commission provisions are outlined under CLURO Section 2.4
