Harriet Worsley set up her garden design company Harriet Worsley Design in 2003, after working as a Landscape Designer for Cameron Landscapes and Gardens in Notting Hill. At Cameron she worked on numerous projects ranging from London roof terraces to large country gardens. Harriet trained at Capel Manor College completing Garden Design, Planting Design and CAD courses, as well as gaining the RHS Certificate in Horticulture. During her training, she also worked as a weekly volunteer at the Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew.
In 1997 Harriet graduated from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design with a first class degree in fashion and scooped the BHS Graduate Fashion Week Award for Marketing. She has worked extensively as a writer, stylist and designer and previous jobs include Internet Co-ordinator at Grimshaw architects, Fashion Editor at Drapers Record magazine and Senior Internet Designer at Condé Nast Online. Harriet has worked as a freelance fashion and interiors journalist for numerous magazines and newspapers such as Vogue and The Telegraph, and is the author of four books on the History of 20th century Fashion. She teaches Planting Design, Fashion Communication and Fashion Journalism at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design today.
“Harriet’s vision and talent has transformed our garden from an ordinary to extraordinary place which has drawn universal admiration from those who visit our house. She has provided a garden for us which is simultaneously stunning yet practical for family life, which contains interest and colour all year around but yet is easy to maintain and versatile. She is a truly talented designer and able to deliver what clients need in a friendly and efficient manner. In her hands the garden becomes the focal point of any property and part of the living space”

“I couldn’t be happier – everyone who comes to my flat now admires the courtyard. Harriet turned a shady, dilapidated area into a bright and stylish patio with contrasting leaf shapes and colourful flowers. It was worth every penny for the efficient, stress free service and low maintenance result. Friends who come round are always asking who did the garden.”
Caroline Norris, Managing Director, Citrus Television
“Harriet has turned our piece of uninspiring scrubland into a front garden we greatly enjoy – it’s not only beautiful and fragrant but her design is also highly practical. Harriet’s garden has both substantially increased the value of our home and attracted the attention of potential purchasers. We’re so grateful and very much hope she will agree to work her magic on our next home.”
Rachel Pierse, Law Lecturer
“We are so thrilled with our beautiful ‘new’ garden which has completely transformed the way we live. Harriet listened carefully to what we wanted and bravely navigated our tight budget to come up with a great solution. Somehow she’s managed to create a larger space for the children, while making sure the beds are crammed full of pretty plants for every season. It’s as though we have an extra room in our terraced house. Not only that, she also spent a very wet day planting with us, cheerfully ignoring the rain and teaching us loads about gardening. She’s brilliant.”
