About

The Salsbery Story

Salsbery Brothers Landscaping is a Carmel, Indiana family-owned business established in 1983. Owner and president, Jeff Salsbery has continuously ran the business from the same 10 acres along 146th street.   As the surrounding gravel roads turned to asphalt streets and the farm fields to neighborhoods Jeff continued to expand the business to meet the growing demand.  We create landscapes that bring families and friends together where they can enjoy nature, each other’s company, and the space around them. Ask Salsbery Brothers how we can help make your vision a reality.

Landscape Designer

Education: Purdue University – B.S. in Landscape Architecture.

Date started with SB: 2008

About:  As a high school student working at a local garden nursery, I realized my love for the outdoors, and I decided to pursue a career in landscape architecture. I have been in the landscape industry for over 20 years.  My favorite part of working with homeowners is the ability to create usable spaces that they are proud of and that are a reflection of their style.   The landscape should complement the house style and the theme should flow from the inside of the home to the outside. When I am not designing landscapes, I enjoy spending time with family, working on projects around the house and going to the gym.
