Default Landscaping. What would be a fair price?

Looking at this house and the driveway just won't do. What do you think someone would charge to rip out these bushes and the next 2 feet of grass or so next to it. Lay down some nice gravel and brick. Or anything that will sit flat and I can park a car on it. Not looking to do concrete as it's probably too expensive.
Just want to be able to park 2 cars side by side

I feel like I'm Mr. "Check your ordinances" like with the Garage .

Some townships have coverage laws on how much of your property you are allowed to 'cover'. Limits you ripping up all the grass and turning it all into Deck/Pool/Asphalt.

I'd imagine you are working with a realtor who would probably know this sort of stuff for the areas you are looking though

*Edit*
@RICH17 beat me to it by a mile...

Exactly what these guys said, check with the town or village to see about extending your driveway. They may require it to be all the same material or may say they don't want you extending it as well...

What town are you in?

No but seriously, get a buddy with a truck and pay him in pizza and beer. $30 all in to rip the bushes out, literally.
