I just started a huge project in my backyard, installing an Intex 16 x 32 pool half way in ground, with retainer wall around perimeter, and level deck all the way around. I had a guy who removed a tree and the stump dig an 18 x 35 raw hole for me, about 2 feet deep. My question is what would be the best tool/method to remove about 8 more inches and level out the bottom earth? Can a sod cutter make short work of this that they rent at Home Depot?
Because of the wisdom in this community I also plan on using some type of foam for the bottom and cement squares for each of the aluminum legs.
Thanks yo all, the project kicks into full swing again this coming weekend, so stay tuned for more images to be added to the gallery below.... All expert suggestions welcome for this first timer!
