replacing pipes

I have a plumbing problem with my waste pipes. The plumber says I need to replace a section of the pipes outside in my backyard. I got an estimate for 2500 dollars, and was wondering is it possible to do all or most of the work myself? I know nothing about plumbing, so any ideas will be extremely helpful. Thanks!

If you have a backhoe and a plumbing license, you sure can !!! If you don't, then you are moving into a back-breaking grey area.

Sewer pipes can be very deep in the ground, depending upon the passing public sewer line in the street.
If you're on a septic system, those waste drain lines to the tank are usually shallow.
However, having no idea what you're dealing with, I wouldn't think that this is a DIY job for an inexperienced person without the proper equipment, etc. Sorry.
Good Luck!
