Someone (Contractor?) Needed for Backyard

Looking for someone who can do the following in and around my house:

  • Backyard: This is the main project.  The backyard right now is just dirt (and dead weeds).  I need someone to come in and
    • Level the yard (which may involve getting a CAT back there, and that may involve removing the gate and fence post)
    • Put down grass seed
    • Build a small stair way or patio or something – just a very small area to put the BBQ and some stairs to get up to the house (it’s about a 3 foot drop)
    • Repair the fence – right now the gate does not open or close smoothly, due I think to some shifting of the post.  I have to lift up on the gate while lifting the latch to open it.  This can be combined with removing the post to get a CAT in.


  • Side of house: The sump pump hose on the side of my house shoots directly at the edge of the house when no pipe is hooked up (for instance in the winter and spring).  See pictures below:

  • I need the pipe problem fixed (find a way to actually make it spray in to the space between the two houses, rather than where it points right now – the plastic pipe I have works all the time except immediately before, during and immediately after winter).
  • Also I need some dirt put along the side of the house to build it up so any water there runs down away from the house.

If you think you can help, please send me some details to:

    From what I see, the best way to create a nice lawn would be to do a quick level the best you can then have a few yards of top soil to put on top and then level it perfectly as you can get it and then lay sod on top of the top soil, Then 2 or 3 weeks later you’ll be needing to pull out the lawn mower the rest of your repairs are minor

    With the soil and probably clay mix you have now seeding it will be very disappointing and will take all summer of seeding and reseeding

    I’m not sure why but this weblog is loading very slow for me.
    Is anyone else having this problem or is it a problem on my end?
    I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.
