Sustainable, ecologically-sound landscaping in Asheville and Western North Carolina


our work

Here are just a few of the possible outcomes when landscape design is founded on a desire for harmony with the surrounding environment. While every project is unique, we hope that these examples will provide you with inspiration.


Working in stone, brick, and wood, CNL produces permanent landscape features that are as beautiful as they are functional…and designed to stand the tests of time and fashion.


Carolina Native Landscapes turns nature into art, and art into nature, by relying on the species that are already adapted for the unique climate and soil of western North Carolina.


Before is comes to life in a landscape, each project begins as a meticulous plan. Owner Tom Mainolfi approaches each rendering in the spirit of a dedicated craftsman…and the result is art as beautiful as the finished product.

Carolina Native Landscapes has done two major landscaping projects for me, and I am thrilled with every aspect of both projects. Their designs have made outdoor living spaces that are inviting and beautiful. The hardscapes made difficult topography beautiful and easy to walk on. Their rock work truly is artistry in stone.
