Polley Garden Design was created by Gillian Polley, a keen gardener who inherited a passion for plants and gardens from her mother. Gillian is a people-focussed businesswoman, with a career spanning over 20 years, and which includes events, quality and customer service management in the fields of communications, IT, insurance and the voluntary sector.
Gillian trained formally in garden design in Edinburgh, and then went on to set up a business reflecting her passion for all things garden-related. She set up Polley Garden Design in 2002, and the company is now a thriving Edinburgh-based practice working for both public and private clients in Scotland and beyond.
Gillian has worked on a wide variety of projects, including a large sensory garden for young people with multiple disabilities, as part of a team of garden designers.
Projects by Polley Garden Design have been featured in the Chelsea Charity Gala Preview, Real Homes Magazine, Home and Interiors Scotland, Scottish Field, Scotland on Sunday and Pro Landscaper Magazine.
