Michael Bernier, founder and lead designer of Bernier Design Group, a full-service landscape and outdoor living design & build firm, is a champion for sustainable design and installation practices. Michael's 25-year career as an award-winning designer has had stints in fashion and sportswear design, branding, advertising and product design, working with global brands such as Coca-Cola, MTV, Nike, and Paramount Pictures.
After studying Landscape Architecture at UCLA, Michael realized his life's purpose by utilizing his design skills combined with his passion for working with Nature and preserving the environment for generations to come.
On his way to certification in Sustainable Development and Permaculture Design, Michael's mission is to connect people back to Nature. "I want to show people how we are intimately connected to our environment, and the simplest way to do that is through the garden. People relax and breathe deeper when sitting peacefully in their tranquil gardens, they can feel their innate connection to Nature. Calm, content people make better choices, and better choices make for a better planet. I really just want to make the world a more beautiful place."
