Sara Barraud Garden Designer Kent

Sara Barraud The Garden Designer

I originally studied photography at Salisbury College of Art before working as First Assistant to a still life photographer in London. In 1985 I set up my own photographic studio in Hackney specialising in still life commissions for design groups, advertising agencies and publishing houses.

In 1998, I decided to change direction and follow my love of garden design and plants. I studied at The English Gardening School based at The Chelsea Physic Garden graduating with a distinction in Garden Design and winning the Best Hard Works Portfolio of the Year.

In 1999 I set up my own garden design studio based in my walled garden in Penshurst, where I work on a variety of commissions from private clients. Working with space, form and colour during my earlier career in photography continues to have a strong influence on the gardens I design today.

About my garden

25 years ago we found our dream cottage sitting in beautiful countryside just outside of Penshurst. To my delight it had an old, very neglected walled garden which had been left empty apart from a lot of brambles, weeds and very long grass. We have slowly tamed the garden and added many different beautiful areas with more to come. Here are a few photos to show what has been created so far.
