The garden progresses from the bleakness and brutality of the Battle of Waterloo 200 years ago, through the greening and flowering of the landscape, to an abstraction of the iconic architecture of Wellington College, the memorial to the Duke of Wellington. The design reconciles the drama and violence of the battle with a progressive and positive future.
Elements of the garden have been inspired by the landscape and terrain of Waterloo that Wellington used to his advantage, the battle formations that successfully repelled attack, the regimental colours of British and Allied troops, the eight aptitudes central to the teaching of the College and the materiality of the College itself, marked with the personal carvings of current pupils and alumni.
Congratulations to all the winners of this year's BBC / RHS People's Choice awards – the only vote to be decided by the public.
