You never know what you'll be bringing home from the home improvement store. You go in for grass seed but come home with new patio chairs and a bag of cement. If you're lucky enough, you could also bring home a professional landscape contractor. On DIY Network's Yard Crashers, expert Chris Lambton waits at stores looking for the perfect weekend warriors who could definitely use his help. Once he finds his target, Chris and his team follow the surprised shoppers home and completely transform their yards.
Chris Lambton designs a landscape for Tony and Malea who have neglected their junk-filled yard for 15 years; Chris adds a pergola, an outdoor bar with a built-in barbecue, a boulder fire feature, a pig spit, and a kayak storage rack.
Chris Lambton and his team transform a blank-slate backyard into a private, old-world living space; the crew builds a massive redwood deck with a privacy screen and a stone fireplace.
Chris and his team head to Blog Cabin in Coeur d' Alene, Idaho to transform the spacious upper deck and front yard into a cozy hideaway with amazing lake views. He builds a slatted pergola with beefy metal posts, beneath a massive dining table and benches complete with a custom slatted bar and grill station and a vertical kitchen garden wall with trailing veggies and colorful flowers. In front, a dry streambed loaded with native and water bog plants to complete this modern Lakeview hideaway.
Chris and his team head to Blog Cabin Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, to transform the lower yard into a mountain retreat space that maximizes the amazing lake view. He builds a 20-foot long waterfall with rustic wood and metal bridge. Nearby he creates custom metal and wood benches to flank the fire pit that sits on a massive locally sourced flagstone patio. In addition, he creates a private space for a cedar hot tub, a nature path with a one-of-a-kind lodge bench and an industrial ceiling for the indoor/outdoor game room.
Chris Lambton takes on a big blank slate of a backyard to give a party-loving couple the perfect outdoor living space. Three distinct patio spaces emerge starting with an elevated redwood tanning deck framed with a decorative curb. Center stage, the guys pour an oversized concrete pad that's popped with a circular boulder fire pit, wine inspired bench swings, and a stunning sheer descent water feature backed with glitzy copper. The last patio is the outdoor kitchen that boasts a stacked stone island with BBQ grill, copper countertop with aged patina, a mosaic pub style table, and a vertical herb and veggie garden lush with seasonal plants.
Chris Lambton and crew turn this dilapidated backyard into a modern bamboo haven. This transformation includes a beautiful bamboo retaining wall that doubles as a seat wall, a large overhang structure custom-made with gigantic bamboo panels for shade and beneath it is a tranquil copper water feature. A composite bamboo countertop bar with kegerator, adjacent to a beefy stainless steel grill, and finally, colorful plants complete the yard.
Chris Lambton and his crew crash a boring, neglected yard and transform it into a West Coast party pad complete with a massive metal bar, redwood pergola, boardwalk deck and a rustic metal fire bowl.
Katie and Ian have a boring yard that is so uninviting they never even think to use it. But Chris promises that he can turn it into an entertaining mecca! He starts with demoing the existing patio and replacing it with sleek concrete slabs. He adds a custom concrete bench and fire feature conversation area and artificial turf, plus plenty of drought tolerant plants. A big new barbecue is dropped into a one-of-a-kind prep space with white metal countertops. DIY pendants hang over a metal floating bar and a metal and wood dining table is also included. All this entertaining space is topped off with shade sails and a cantilevered arbor with perforated metal to provide plenty of shade.
