Hi guys my name is Patrick some of you might recognize my name from Plowsite. I am looking at buying a home in northern IL by Fox Lake. Anyways I wanted to get some advice on this lot. I don't do any landscaping just snow removal so I have no clue how bad this is, what is growing here or how hard it will be to get it back to a nice green lawn. The home is a bank owned property so that will give you an idea how bad the lot is. Here are a few pics one is an overall of part of the lot and then a close up of a section.

I also would like to find a company in that area who would be willing to give me a quote to fix this up. I don't have much of a green thumb.

Thanks in advance for any info.
