About Polley Garden Design - Mixed planting with Astrantia


Polley Garden Design was set up in 2002 by Gillian Polley and is an established professional garden design practice based in Edinburgh.  Most of our clients are in Edinburgh and the Lothians, and further afield in the Scottish Borders, Kingdom of Fife, Perthshire and beyond.

Gillian is a keen gardener who inherited a passion for design, gardens and plants from her mother and trained at the Pickard School of Garden Design in Edinburgh. Her commitment to continuing professional development enables her to produce unique gardens which clients can love and enjoy for years to come.

Polley Garden Design, with a background in customer service, brings many years of experience and expertise to each project with long established professional, construction and supplier partnerships to ensure best quality and value gardens, built on time and to your budget.  All of which enables us to fulfil our clients’ vision for their gardens.

Projects by Polley Garden Design have been featured in the Chelsea Charity Gala Preview, Home and Interiors Scotland, Real Homes Magazine, Scottish Field, Scotland on Sunday and Pro Landscaper Magazine.
