“TV work is way harder than real life working,” says Lambton, who works eight-hour days for the family landscaping business, E. Lambton Landscaping in Dennis, with his younger brother Erik and father Ed. On workdays he and Erik often grab coffee or a bite to eat at The Mercantile (aka The Merc), owned by Meagan Lambton, the wife of his youngest brother, Dennis Police Officer Mark Lambton. Whether it’s for a TV show or a home in Dennis, Lambton loves designing outdoor entertaining spaces. “I love teaching families and new homeowners the love of being outdoors,” he says. “That’s one of the great things about being a landscape designer—you can design a yard to get people outside and enjoying life.”

Growing up in Dennis, some of Lambton’s fondest moments were spent outdoors. “I remember in the summers my brothers and I riding our bikes to the beach,” he says. “My parents always brought us to the beach. My dad has sisters who live here, so we’d hang out on the beach with their kids, and we’d have a big family circle on the beach. For me, it was perfect—it was Norman Rockwell-ish.”

Today, Lambton enjoys such simple pleasures with his own family, taking walks and hanging out on Corporation Beach. “We go down to the beach a lot,” he says, adding, “Lyla sits on the porch and waves to people, and she goes to The Mercantile, so she gets to see that great atmosphere that is Dennis. I’m fortunate to raise my daughter here, it’s going to be fun.”
