Urban Oasis

At every stage of this delightful garden’s transformation, Vicky and Mark have discussed the layout, sharing ideas for plants and structures alike, before working together to make it happen. ‘Gardening has become a bit of an obsession with me, whereas for Mark it is an ongoing project that he cheerfully does, knowing how much it means to me,’ explains Vicky. ‘In truth, he prefers sitting in the garden, whereas I’m always looking for things to do — I love the fact that a garden is never finished, and has become a constant source of enjoyment and learning.’
