I love Baymules idea, (Better than mine!) YES, I think you could do this yourself and it would look as fabulous as your back yard.Mary your house is beautiful! I can't believe the $$$$ they want to put artificial turf in such a small area. And $2000 just for a design! I think the TEG bunch here can bounce ideas around until you like one or two of them.
You say gravel won't work, what about flagstone laid in a design? Leave an opening where you want to put a plant. Then arrange a bench and birdbath. Your back yard is so tastefully done, I know you will make the front look good too.
2nd idea, what about brick laid in a herringbone design, or other design that you like? It would be smooth and you could rake the leaves. You could build brick planter boxes for the plants you want.
