Bernard Trainor: Landprints
Raised on the Mornington Peninsula along Australia’s rugged southeastern coast below Melbourne, Bernard developed a lasting awareness and appreciation of native landscapes. Following an apprenticeship in horticulture and design studies, he was awarded a scholarship that allowed him to study in England under the famed plantswoman and garden designer Beth Chatto. Her regionally appropriate approach further developed Bernard’s design philosophy. In the years that followed Bernard completed a diploma of landscape design while studying at the Chelsea Physic Garden. He arrived in Northern California in 1995 and fell in love with the region. Drawing on thirty years of passionate commitment to the study and practice of landscape design, Bernard is the founding principal and design director of Bernard Trainor + Associates, based in Monterey. The studio’s award-winning projects range from town-scaled gardens to extensive rural properties, and have been featured in numerous books and publications, including the New York Times, Vogue Living, and Garden Design.
