I need to completely regrade and plant the front and build a vegetable garden in the back yard. Did you use home depot or a local company?

I have a front yard and a back yard. I guess you could call the little space on either side of the house yards also making it 4, but I can't see saying I have 5 yards.

sure...
but when i lived in Algiers Point, i redid the back yard - i borrowed a friend's truck and went out to someplace DEEP into the Westbank and bought a bed full of soil
(Unfortunately, the truck did not fit the tiny carport, and i wanted to get the truck back asap, so i had to unload the soil onto the carport - return truck - wheelbarrow from carport to garden. if i could have just backed up to the garden it would have been awesome)

i also lined our Honda Element with tarp and visited one of the horse stables for some...fertilizer
did not tell the wife that plan until afterwards
