In 2008, Columbia was selected to design parking lot and landscape improvements for the Discover Mills Park and Ride for the Gwinnett County Dept. of Transportation (GCDOT). Columbia developed civil plans for the expansion of the facility, as well as detailed landscape plans to meet the requirements of Gwinnett County reuse existing mature and healthy plants and to enhance the attractiveness of the site. After identifying the size, species, and health of existing plants, a plant removal plan was created. Healthy specimens were selected for the plant relocation plan and new plants were selected from the GCDOT plant list for a new material plan. The new plant materials were selected for drought tolerance, seasonal interest, adaptability to site conditions including low maintenance, and suitability within the framework of the existing landscape.
