Born in Australia, landscape architect Bernard Trainor now practices in California where native scenery influences his spectacular designs. In writing this monograph, Susan Heeger has selected ten of his largest gardens as examples of the firm’s work. Like Jens Jensen, an advocate of the prairie style of gardening, Trainor and his team recognize the beauty of the native landscape and the plants that grow there. In his designs,  he ably fulfills the wishes of the owners and the demands of nature in bringing back the natural splendor of the land. These gardens will endure over time, examples of a master’s touch. —Marilyn K. Alaimo, garden writer and volunteer, Chicago Botanic Garden.
