The perfect garden for entertaining can also work for quiet relaxation--even in a small space. This landscape, in Walnut Creek, California, accommodates both functions seamlessly. The designers organized the yard into zones that correspond to the home's interior rooms: large patios for group activities, intimate ones for relaxing. A redwood boardwalk, fringed with pink-flowered coral bells, connects a bedroom deck and breakfast nook with the main bluestone patio and dining area on the garden's opposite side.
