Living Matter is a creative landscape design studio that focuses primarily on designing unique landscapes for residential and corporate clients in and around Cape Town, Western Cape South Africa.

We, secondarily, also manage the full implementation process and oversee our design concept successfully through to final completion.


How Living Matter was conceived

Before Living Matter was even launched as an official company, great thought, strategy, enthusiasm and dedication was put into the concept and the creation of the company.


Living Matter in the present

Living Matter is currently changing the way in which landscape designing is being done. The company has grown organically from designing small projects, to designing and managing medium and large projects successfully. The majority of our work is sourced through referrals from our existing customers, architects, our preferred suppliers and our implementation partners.


October Edition As testament to this, Cheral Kennedy (as owner and primary representative of Living Matter - Landscape Styling and Design) has been profiled as a top landscape designer with 10 other green finger experts in the Western Cape October 2009 edition of The Property Magazine.
