where we work
We have enjoyed hundreds of builds through the years with regional and national recognition such as Southern Living Magazine and local publications. Our footprint includes several high end properties in Biltmore Forest, Maggie Valley, Waynesville, Spartanburg, and through the city of Asheville. Our service area is usually 50 miles depending on the size of the project. Feel free to send us a message even if your outside our service radius. Availability of materials including rocks is our primary concern along with transportation costs for material deliveries. Logistics will vary depending on your location. Allenworks loves to see our work spread into new areas such as Marion, Lake James, Arden, Saluda, and other communities east or south of Asheville.

Take a look at our services page to see all of our current capabilities. If there is something you don’t see, feel free to ask.
how we schedule
Allenworks is a small team for a reason. The owners are out in the field overseeing the projects to maintain consistent work that looks just as good as all of our other projects. It takes years of experience to design and build a realistic waterscape or get your land grading exact. Everything from boulder selection to placement is a true art form that we keep in a small circle of highly trained workers.
With that said, our schedule can get hectic and there has been waiting times to get your project started depending on the season. Allenworks stays booked as we are selective in what projects we work on. If you are thinking about a project, it is best to contact us as early as possible so we can discuss the scope and get a better idea of a start date and how long the project will last.
create your own zen
Our team enhances your outdoor spaces through the artistic use of natural materials. We balance unique and creative planting composition against hardscape elements so that the existing architecture blends well into its surroundings. At Allenworks, we respect the style and character of your home, and our design responds to the conversation your architecture initiates.
