The Bachelor alum Peyton Lambton, along with husband Chris Lambton, transform neglected backyards into amazing outdoor spaces that are perfect for entertaining and relaxing. Patios, water features, fire pits, arbors and truckloads of plants will be revealed as the guests arrive to christen the new space with its first outdoor party. Peyton appears on HGTV and DIY Network’s Going Yard and Yard Crashers.

Born and raised in San Diego, Sara enjoys cycling, art and traveling. When she’s not hiking the trails of California’s majestic canyons, Sara is hard at work creating new and innovative designs that showcase her passion for landscaping. Sara earned her Bachelor of Architecture from California Polytechnic State University and has worked as a professional landscape designer on both large commercial projects and private residences across California. While she’s a designer at heart, Sara is not afraid to get her hands dirty to make sure her projects come to life. Sara’s keen eye for design is a welcome addition to DIY Network, as she creates cutting-edge outdoor living spaces on I Hate My Yard.
