Brayfield Lane Garden Design & Landscaping

Chalfont St. Giles

Brayfield Lane Garden Design & Landscaping. A terraced garden designed and landscaped has transformed a recently renovated property in Chalfont St. Giles, Buckinghamshire.


Both hard landscaping and a sensible soft landscaping scheme allowed Karl Harrison Landscapes to create a pallet that the brief welcomed. The materials, a combination of natural products with a contemporary addition of onsite poured concrete…

Stylish paving is laid in a random pattern pointed with a colour sympathetic to the style of the paving. In this situation, we always use Pro Joint “Max” by Nexus because it is a failsafe and durable product we trust. Furthermore, the contemporary Italian style split faced wall tiles, butt jointed with no grouting act as a contrasting texture to the paving. The custom coping stones complete the hard landscaping.

Furthermore, the garden features created in the solid concrete form a bench in a proud position in the garden, creating somewhere to sit and be surrounded in the foliage away from the property. The step leading edges were also created on site to match this feature.

Charred Timber also features in this garden, a much-needed backdrop to the zinc flavoured water feature. The simple feature is highlighted due to the massive contract between the black and the zinc. Further, this water feature provides a gentle harmonic sound as the many water blades combine in sound…

Planting Plan

I love using Heptacodium Miconioides stars because the flowers burst open like stars and the abundance of them is staggering. We also used multi-stemmed and thy which look spectacular in the evening as they are individually up lit.

Rheum atropurpureum we chose this purple wonder as a garden favourite plant due to the huge texture and vibrancy in colour…

The rear garden hedging Prunus Lucinatica was a clever choice; not always top of the list but the slight red colour of the stems leading to the serrated leaf edge adds an interesting contrast to the rest of the subtle planting scheme…

  • Acanthus mollis Agapanthus Gayles Lilac 
  • Asarum europium Asplenum scolopendrium
  • Asplenum scolopendrium Dianthus cruentus
  • Digitalis p. dalmatian white Echinacea p. ‘white swan’ 
  • Epimedium x perralchicum ‘Frohnleiten’ Euphorbia amygdaloides robbiae
  • Euphorbia characias Hakonachloa macra
  • Helebore x sternii Hydrangea quercifolia 
  • Iris perry’s blue Lysimachia sp. Candela
  • Nepeta grandiflora Pachysandra terminalis
  • Polystichum polyblepherum Polystichum Herrenausen
  • Selenium wallichianum Thalictrum delavayi

The obvious style in a garden can be achieved with an Acer, they are beautiful plants and in this scheme not in a central position, but to one side, to balance and showcase in their own right… Acer palamatum Bloodgood
