An imaginative home garden( Christine Cotter / Los Angeles Times )
Succulents planted in a long metal trough serve as a centerpiece to the outdoor dining table. With hammock, butterfly chairs, fireplace and deck seating, the garden now provides a versatile, functional design for the Halls' growing household.
Most recently, the family adopted three Leghorn chickens, treating them to a custom coop in exchange for fresh eggs. And so it goes as the designers continue to experiment and adapt, blurring the line between playground and proving ground.
