Sounds like you want to completely renovate your landscaping. You'll want to approach this systematically by making lists of priorities, sketches of proposed and desired use areas and planting beds vs. lawn, and consulting many resources.

You can begin by reading through our landscape help: http://extension.umd.edu/hgic/earth-friendly-landscaping.
We do not do house calls, such as you propose. You can contact your Baltimore County Extension (see Staff Directory at the bottom of our homepage) and inquire whether Baltimore County Master Gardeners are willing to visit. Or click on Master Gardener at the top of our homepage.
However, ultimately you will want to decide how you want to use your landscape, how much time or money you can put into it, and how you want to tackle it.

The wonderful homeowner program "The Woods in Your Backyard" might be just best suited to achieve what you want to transform your landscape. This provides a guidebook as well as workshops: https://extension.umd.edu/woodland/woods-your-backyard
