Annemarie and Matthew Hall are landscape architects in Laguna Nigel. Most of the time they're working on million-dollar jobs for their L.A. clients. But when they're not, they're testing sustainable landscaping ideas out in their own yard...
The Hall's front and backyards are testing grounds for their businesses, where they focus on saving water, choosing appropriate plants for the climate, and maximizing every bit of usable space.
