I bought my house in 2007, and we inherited a crazy backyard. I'd like to completely redo it, but cost is a big issue. Estimates for a complete landscape are around $30,000, which unfortunately is out of our budget. Since our house has lost quite a bit of value, a HELOC is out of the question.
It's too much work for just one person to do, so I've considered hiring day laborers, and doing it myself.
My plan is to have them remove all green, saving a few apple trees for replanting. But outside of that I have no idea what else I need to do.
Is there a person I can hire to figure out a plan, and coordinate this whole ordeal, or will they have their own personnel?
I have a yard waste recycling bin, but the amount of brush needed to be removed will be more than a single bin full--What are my options for getting rid of the underbrush?
The yard is tiered, and ideally I'd love to level it out. Is this feasible?
