Jensen Beach Causeway

Jensen Beach, FL

Cotleur & Hearing, Inc. was retained by Florida Department of Transportation, District 4, to provide landscape, irrigation, hardscape and park design for this streetscape and waterfront park project. The 1.9 mile causeway connects Jenson Beach with Hutchinson Island and includes several waterfront park features like boat ramps, fishing piers, picnic pavilions, parking areas, restrooms and a playground. Cotleur & Hearing was responsible for assisting the department with the park layout and for specifying all site furniture including benches, bike racks, trash cans, BBQ grills and play areas. The proposed landscape plant palette is comprised of mostly native-coastal species that can tolerate the harsh waterfront conditions and also provide shade and wind protection and aesthetic interest. The irrigation system was also a design challenge because the use of potable water had to be minimized due to cost and environmental concerns. The final result was a combination of city water and well-water systems. With a landscape budget of approximately $1 million, this project was completed in the winter of 2004.
