    Hard soil

    I am having trouble leveling my soil. I have all the sod remove but cannot get a shovel into my dirt. I tried wetting it but it still doesnt help. Anyone have any ideas. Don't really have much cash to spend unfortunantly.

    If you don't own one, you can use rent a rototiller. It will do an amazing job of tearing up hard soil. As long as it isn't stone.

    Thats what i was thinking. I didn't want to because it would make the pool settle but I guess I will have to let the dirt settle before installing the pool

    Just go lightly, a couple inches at a time.
