Jeffrey Carbo, ASLA, Landscape Architects Site Planners, is a landscape architecture and planning firm located in Alexandria, Louisiana. The firm has a staff of 10. Its project experience ranges from commercial and institutional planning and design to award-winning estate residential landscape designs throughout Louisiana and the southeastern United States.

The firm's philosophy is based on traditional and classic design principles that stand the test of time. These principles include careful analysis of a site's character and context and the creation of forms that also respond to its natural features. The firm's successes lie in the thoughtful analyses and close working relationships with clients.

Implementation of the firm's designs rely heavily on the use of authentic and honest materials and true craftsmen for hardscape elements. Care in the selection of native and traditional plant materials from the southeast's finest growers also contribute to the authenticity of the firm's designs.

Duval House

Beauregard Parish, Louisiana

Jeffrey Carbo, ASLA, did the master plan and design of the site infrastructure, hardscape and gardens surrounding a rebuilt plantation home that was previously destroyed by fire. Working closely with the owner, garden spaces were developed for the 80-acre property, including an entrance garden, the adjacent four-acre pond; the rear terrace garden; a camellia and azalea garden; pavilion; pool house renovation; and fountains as for the garden rooms. The tree-story, 25,000 sq. ft. home and property has several mature oaks that were preserved during the construction and planting of the renovated gardens.

Fontainebleau State Park Master Plan

St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana

The Fontainebleau State Park master plan was prepared for the state of Louisiana and the Office of State Parks as a joint venture of Jeffrey Carbo, ASLA, Mesa Design Group of Dallas, and Trapolin Architects of New Orleans.

On land that was once a Creole sugar plantation, Fontainebleau State Park is approximately 2,800 acres located on Lake Pontchartrain, just north of New Orleans across the Mississippi River. It includes many diverse ecosystems; longleaf pine stands; marshes; cypress swamps; small bayous; and sandy beach at the shore of the lake.

The concept was to prepare a plan that reconnects visitors with the primary resource of the park--Lake Pontchartrain. The $25 million master plan includes a new visitor center; a nature center; preservation of sugar mill ruins; a restored WPA-era lakefront pavilion; and a lake front vacation cabin cluster that re-creates the vernacular architecture of Creole fishing villages at the water's edge. The project also includes beach restoration and erosion control, development and improvements to the trail system, and educational interpretive exhibits. The construction of the $7 million first phase of the project is scheduled to begin in late 2003, or early 2004.

The Roy O. Martin Lumber Co., is an international timber and wood products manufacturer and distributor.

Inspired by the circular forms of growth rings in a hardwood timber cross section, the enclosed courtyard, visible from surrounding offices and conference rooms, was developed using these forms and colors. The design re-creates a forest stand adjacent to the interior walls of the courtyard, and features a fountain that cascades from a cluster of copper tubes that emulate stacked wood piles.
