With the help of his wife, Peyton, landscape pro Chris Lambton regularly transforms boring backyards into amazing outdoor spaces on HGTV's Going Yard. The couple loves to get their hands dirty together by digging around in the garden.
Chris and Peyton share 6 things to know before starting a summer garden >>
Like most gardening enthusiasts, the Lambtons have their favorite tools. Chris, with a background in landscaping, likes having a mattock pick on hand for stonework, a pole chainsaw for trimming tall trees and a tape measure for space planning. Peyton, who puts the decorative touches on outdoor spaces, prefers simple tools like work gloves and a hand shovel for planting. Rather than messing with gadgets for weeding, Peyton prefers using her hands, saying there's "nothing better than ripping them out of the ground."
