You are looking for a General Contractor - with the outdoor work included probably a new home developer type.


My recommendation - by throwing in the landscaping work you might well be complicating the work (unless a very large job in $ and scope) and making it more expensive for yourself, because a remodel GC will likely sub this out anyway.


The outdoor work should not be started (or even final scoped) until the house part is totally done (at least all the exterior work), so if all you are into outside is minor fill, sprinkler system and sod, I would go with a Remodel - General Contractor or Remodel - Kitchen and Bath (since flooring is usually subbed out anyway) for the house work, making sure to include in his scope of work an electrical outlet and stubbing out piping with a backflow preventer and shutoff valve at appropriate size and place for the sprinkler system contractor, then after he is done hire a Landscaping company to come and do the outdoor work - which might include minor reclamation of damage from the house construction crews that you want to add to the scope of work anyway. By breaking it into two parts you also have the option of deferring the outdoor work if the house part has cost overruns. Also, assuming you are just getting going with this now, unless you are in a perennially warm part of the country it is probably late (considering time till exterior house work is done) to be starting this type of outdoor work with winter coming on.
