Freya Willetts

London and the South East

I graduated from The London College of Garden Design in 2021 with Distinction and since then have worked on designs for private residential gardens in London, Surrey and Oxfordshire as well as a sensory garden for Central & Cecil Housing Trust in North London.

I am passionate about creating gardens and landscapes that tell a story and that enrich the environment both for people and for wildlife. Taking a research-based and practical approach, I combine classic design principles with fine details to create uniquely beautiful places that reflect my clients’ requirements and taste.

While gardens increasingly serve as outdoor rooms, I aim to foreground their importance as green sanctuaries for people and wildlife by incorporating a strong planting element in my schemes. I also strive to work sustainably as much as possible.

I have an RHS Level 2 Certificate in Plant Health, Propagation & Development and have volunteered and worked as a gardener in historic and private gardens in West London. In 2021 I was selected as a winner in the Royal Parks Growing Generations competition and I have helped to build show gardens at RHS Hampton Court (Tom Stuart Smith, 2021; Ula Maria, 2019), RHS Tatton Park (Freddie Strickland, RHS Young Designer of the Year 2021 & RHS Gold medal) and RHS Chelsea (The Outdoor Room, 2021).

Before becoming a garden designer I worked as a Marketing & Communications Manager in the Third Sector. This experience in engaging closely with clients on creative assignments and managing complex projects underpins my training as a garden designer.
