Redoing 3'x12' front of house mini lawn


I have this in front of my house now:

I want to make it look like this:

I know nothing about lawn care with exception of lawn mowing but have done alot of work around the house. What's involved with doing it myself?

Do I save alot compared to having someone do it for me?

How much does it cost to have someone do a good job on this?

Thanks in advance.

Just spray it with roundup,and when it's all dead sod it with new grass,just be sure and keep it watered for the first couple of weeks.
