Landscape designer Bernard Trainor masterminded a seamless garden to surround a 1958 Silicon Valley Eichler. In addition to creating the illusion of more space, he used paving to help steer the eye through the residents’ irregularly shaped lot. He also divided the yard into four “garden rooms”: an entry courtyard with a fire pit for entertaining, a traditional backyard with a lawn and a dining area, a meditative space just off the master bedroom, and a side garden near the guesthouse.
