DH loves working in the yard, and we have some projects planned but not sure what to do or where to start, plus time is limited. His birthday is next Friday and I was thinking as a gift I would get someone to come out and do some of the things we need (rake up and cart out a crap-ton of leaves, cut the grass, cut some trees down and remove, etc...), but I also want someone that can talk to DH about his plans and offer ideas or help. We want to level our back yard, and we need to plant a lot of grass, want to rip out shrubs and get some new ones, regrade our stone path around the house, and some other things. Do I call a lawn service, a landscape company, both, neither? Any ideas would be great, and if you know someone who could do this that would be even better!
