Need to level small, square rocky yard

About 750 sf. Yard is blocked by a pool on one side, house on the other, so getting something big in isn't exactly possible.

The yard is not terribly uneven, but there are definite valleys in it. I sprayed round up to kill the weeds to the roots.

Should I just buy some top soil and roll it in? Power Rake? Tiller on a very low setting (a few inches?) Tilling is not recommended right due to lumps?

Just add a little topsoil at a time from a wheel barrow and use rakes to level the lawn with grass blades poking up through the dirt... Something big would do little more than create variable compactions of the soil from tire tracks, anyways,,, so just take it slow and easy and do it correctly... you can also reseed anytime you're adding topsoil...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
