London Love Affair

Victoria Wyman and Mark McKown moved into their 1930s home in 2010, drawn by the unusually long London garden with space enough for lawn, a den and treehouse for their two young children, Uly and Niamh.

The original 27 m x 7m plot was full of brambles which were cleared, only to reveal low walls defining the borders, and a series of narrow concrete paths which had to be removed. An old garage, ugly but useful, jutted out into the first section of the back garden, an eyesore until Mark hid it behind screening, ready to disguise with climbing plants. Over time, the north-east-facing garden has been divided into three distinct areas, using wooden screens, trees and shrubs. By the house, a wooden deck leads down to a gravelled area. About halfway down the garden, an outdoor dining area is shaded by a big old plum tree. A path then leads to a lawn enclosed in raised beds and mature planting. Finally, at the furthest end, Mark’s studio was completed last year, and edged in hot-coloured borders
