DIY Host of Yard Crashers and Going Yard

Chris Lambton - DIY Host

Chris Lambton is a media personality and lifestyle expert based on Cape Cod, MA with his wife Peyton. Chris is host of DIY Networks “Yard Crashers” and appears with Peyton on HGTV's “Going Yard” where they transform backyards, one house at a time. The show highlights Chris’s landscaping skills and gardening know-how as he creates outdoor living spaces and features including patios, pergolas, fire pits and water features for deserving homeowners. Chris’ expertise includes landscaping, hardscaping, garden planning, lawn care, and maintenance for all of these areas of your outdoor living space.

Chris also appears on HGTV and DIY Networks specials “HGTV Dream Home”, “HGTV SmartHome” and “Blog Cabin”.

Chris first won hearts onscreen in season six of ABC’s “The Bachelorette,” starring Ali Fedotowsky, and was ultimately named runner-up. In a Hollywood twist, wife Peyton appeared on season ten of “The Bachelor” and season one of “The Bachelor Pad,” but they did not meet on camera and instead were introduced by a mutual friend.

Since 2007, Chris has been living in his hometown of Cape Cod and running the family’s landscape business, E. Lambton Landscaping, alongside his brother Erik. Prior to that, he was a teacher and varsity boys’ basketball coach at New York City’s High School of Economics and Finance. He holds a degree from Providence College in Rhode Island and was part of the Big East Conference Academic All-Star Team in 1998 and 1999.

Chris is very involved with Compassionate Care ALS (CCALS) as a result of his mother’s fight with Multiple System Atrophy (MSA), a disease associated with the degeneration of nerve cells in specific areas of the brain. He continues to give back to the organization as often as possible.
