peyton_chris_shoreshotz_photography_116Learn expert tips from the hosts of HGTV’s Going Yard and former The Bachelor/Bachelorette stars, Chris & Peyton Lambton!

Chris Lambton transforms backyards, one house at a time, with the help of his wife Peyton in the new HGTV series Going Yard. The show highlights Chris’ landscaping skills and gardening know-how as the couple creates outdoor living spaces and features, including patios, arbors and water features, for deserving homeowners. In addition to Chris’ expert landscaping skills, Peyton provides entertaining advice wrapped in Southern charm as the couple transforms neglected backyards into eye-popping outdoor living spaces for lucky homeowners. With Kingsport, Tenn., as her hometown, Peyton is also a graduate of the University of Tennessee.

You might also know Chris from season six of ABC’s The Bachelorette, starring Ali Fedotowsky, where he was ultimately named runner-up.  In a Hollywood twist, Peyton appeared on season ten of The Bachelor and season one of The Bachelor Pad.  Instead of meeting on camera, Chris and Peyton were actually introduced by a mutual friend. The couple now resides in Cape Cod, Mass.
