 Grading a pool landscape

I just had a gunite in ground pool put in - we have backfilled the pool and now need to grade teh land around the pool for a deck. The ground is hard pack soil and rock. What is the best implement for this? (Thanks in advance for the advice)

If it were me I'd not backfill for at least a week or so---maybe more until the concrete has had a chance to cure. I've seen where backhoes and even bobcats have backfilled along a basement wall before they should have and either cracked the wall or caved it in. But to answer your question, a box scraper and a tractor would work fine. Even a bobcat would be ok. I wouldn't use any type of vibrating compactor either as the vibrations could cause premature cracking also---especially if you are sending down stones and rocks down along the sides. I would backfill 4-6 inches at a time and give it a heavy dose of water and let it soak in (garden hose)--that will hasten the settling process and remove any trapped air quickly.

Box blade with rippers would probly be your best bet.

BF- Did you also dig the pool out? I am going to attempt to put my own inground pool in next summer & was wondering what I'm in for.

Thanks for the response - the gunite shell was allowed to cure for 10 days before we backfilled

Yes that is true, I used to install pools before I stated turning wrenches.

Mostly because the excavation is usually subbed out.

How large was the pit they dug (depth & width & length)? I am just trying to get a feel for what I am in for.
