Saul Abbott Garden Design is a garden design studio based in Sevenoaks, Kent, designing gardens throughout Kent and London.
My garden design philosophy is simple: to create beautiful and practical gardens that will change lives for the better.
The passion i have for garden design started with a City & Guilds course at Lewisham College in 2006 whilst working as a head gardener for a garden designer based in West London. Later, i studied at the more esteemed Capel Manor college which gave me the confidence in 2007 to undertake my first garden design commision in Stoke Newington, London.
Since that first garden design I have designed private and commercial gardens and spaces all over London and the South East, as well as in South of France, Eastern and Western Canada, the Netherlands and India.
With an added 15 years experience as a professional horticulturist and landscaper, I have a complete understanding of all of the elements that make up a garden and I have used this knowledge in the past to teach horticulture and landscaping skills and techniques to young adults undertaking an industry-recognised qualification, as part of a previous role at an horticultural charity.
Outside of my passion for gardens i play a mean mouth harp, collect old jazz and blues music, cook an exceptional black bean dahl, search the globe for a good hat, continue to transform my home into a jungle, propagate too many plants from seeds and cuttings, travel as much as possible and practice Vipassana meditation.
