SPRING HAS SPRUNG – AND OUR STUDIO DOOR IS OPEN!

OUR CLIENTS PROVIDE THE CANVAS; WE CREATE THE MASTERPIECE.

Contours Design Studio is an outdoor lifestyle design and installation company, providing a service to clients in the Western Cape and beyond. We offer innovative design and extensive plant knowledge to produce dynamic spaces that add value to our clients’ lives and properties.

OUR DESIGN STUDIO

From our studio in Cape Town, we serve as a single point of contact for our clients. While we remain closely affiliated with the Contours Group, we now operate independently to deliver our design flair suited to private homeowners and smaller commercial sites.

OUR DESIGNERS

Our qualified and experienced designers have 50 years of successful accumulative experience in the greening industry and expertly drive the process seamlessly – from concept to the finished landscape – to fully realise the potential of any site.

THE CREATIVE TEAM THAT BRINGS GARDEN JOY HOME

CARA SMITH

CARA SMITH

Landscape Designer | Managing Director

N.D. Landscape Technology

“There has never been a more exciting time to be a landscape designer. As we enter a new dawn, let it be more about listening, reconnecting and applying our minds to the environment in which we all live. I absolutely love natural gardening, where the lines are blurred, where landscape and architecture are one, and where the home is part of the greater environment.”

“The deep satisfaction that is invested in a well-designed landscape goes beyond colour alone and comes from a multi-dimensional sensory experience that shifts and changes with the seasons and over time, but is nonetheless deeply rooted in its specific location.”

“As is imitation to flattery, so is a landscape designer to nature. Being an avid user of the Mediterranean palette, whether it be plants, colours or textures, my mythical paintbrush is dipped in regions and I paint in themes.”

“Each of our team members has a very specialised skillset. Mine is hardscaping and building structures. I am a huge fan of Sydney-based garden designer, Peter Fudge. His use of simple, clean lines and contrast planting satisfies my need for organisation and structure.”
