Lisa Hallett Taylor

Several years ago, Lisa dug up the front lawn of her Southern California home and replaced it with drought-tolerant plants, including natives and succulents. She has a B.A. from California Polytechnic State University, Pomona, and a certificate in landscape design. Lisa has written about gardening and outdoor living since 2008 for various websites and magazines, including About.com, TheSpruce, and Laguna Beach Magazine. Hailing from ancestors who were do-it-yourselfers, Lisa and her family spend their spare time restoring their Midcentury Modern home. One of her longtime goals is to have a sustainable vegetable garden like her grandmother did in Texas.
