Bernard Trainor. Australian-born landscape designer Bernard Trainor uses the tools of both the naturalist and the architect to create stunning large-scale gardens that unfold over many acres. Across airy hilltops, craggy seasides, and other one-of-a-kind tracts, Trainor applies simple, understated frames to rugged natural panoramas, the better to bring them into focus.
