About us

Matthew Koehorst– With a childhood spent sailing the Caribbean and a Bachelors in Environmental Science and Anthropology, Matthew has a long held passion for exploring how people and nature interact and believes that good design can bring us and our environment closer. Matthew’s experience lies in education, whole systems design, ecological restoration and project management and he has a particular interest in sustainable water management, food growing and indigenous trees.

Layla Staegemann– Growing up on the Garden Route between the Knysna forest and the pristine coastline, Layla began a life centered within nature. She has international experience designing, managing and teaching on permaculture projects in New Zealand, India and South Africa. This work gave her the foundation and passion to work with people in creating their dream living environments that are aesthetically pleasing, ecologically attuned and resilient. She loves fynbos, wild flowers, and growing healthy food.

Ecological design and landscaping

We offer a design and implementation service for ecologically minded landscaping that draws on a variety of disciplines to create beautiful, abundant and holistically designed gardens and wild spaces. Our designs work to integrate the needs and wants of people with the character and potential of the land. By focusing on our local ecology, and your vision, we create projects that support nature and provide for you. For more information on our ecological design work, click here

Project Management

Working collaboratively with a growing network of professionals in their field brings expertise and diversity into projects when and where needed.
