Bernard Trainor is an Australian-born designer and founding principal and design director of Ground Studio Landscapes, based in Monterey, California. His projects have been featured in a wide range of books and publications and are the recipients of numerous awards. His previous book is Landprints.
"There's something to like in every project, and with colored
plans, short descriptions, and plenty of photographs, there's
plenty for both architects and landscape architects to enjoy.
Landscape architects in particular should appreciate the project
details at the back of the book, where Trainor generously lists the
hardscape and plant materials used on each project."

"The studio's work is impressive, [a]nd the monograph makes the work look effortless. Of course, we know it wasn't, and there was a rich design process behind each of the featured projects."
