IMO, you wouldn't want the same person for a/c as for a deck and fence. If you're not hard pressed for time, take them one at a time, by priority. I assume the a/c is at the top of the list. I'd get prices from AT LEAST 2 vendors and get a written commitment. What's next - fence? deck? Go to the yellow pages or to a big box home improvement store for a fence builder. Then the deck. Then landscaping. The garage door opener, closet work, and window treatment can be done my most handymen. You'll probably want to pick out your own inside window treatment.
PS. Don't mention to anyone how much you have to spend. (They'll want to help you spend it all.) Just let them know you're on a budget and want quality for a reasonable price.
