Mahan Drive & I-10 Interchange

Client: FDOT District 3
Location: Leon County, FL
Size: 72 acre site 3 miles of roadway
Service: Transportation & Mobility

Highlights:
 

Florida's state capital has four interchanges along interstate-10. The easternmost interchange is the first impression many visitors, including most Floridians, will experience of the State Capital landscape. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) hired Genesis, under our miscellaneous landscape achitecure services contract, designed and developed a landscape plan that both makes a lasting impression and represents North Florida's natural flora. The Historic Crape Myrtle trees lining Mahan Drive are extended through the interchange with rows of large blooming trees. By incorporating native plants, colorful foliage, and strong view sheds, the Genesis team is providing an aesthetically pleasing yet sustainable landscape with a focus on year-round beauty.

As part of our comprehensive maintenance plan, Genesis takes on the responsibility to solve the cogon grass (Imperata cylindrica) infestation invading the site. This species, considered to be one of the top 10 worst weeds in the world, can negatively affect pine growth, wildlife habitats, native plants, and fire management. Using professional level research and our team's experience, Genesis is providing a safe and effective management plan to prevent further spread of the species and replacing it with native wildflowers.
