    I took out an above ground pool today and need to figure out what to do from here.. should i just lay the top soil over the sand they had or should i rent a dingo and remove as much sand as i can than lay the top soil down.. theres sections were the pool wwas down a good 10 inches so theres a pretty good slope away from the house.

    get a dingo and get the wides bucket they have, and remove all the sand and make sure you don't crush any sump pumps under the sand (i did :D ). Next after you've taken a good amount of sand out, get some top soil and make it level or on a grade or w/e.
    After that, put some sod down. water is a little and it look good.

    - Wet sand is heavy and will tip the dingo over which will cause it to shut off
    - Don't get the dingo stuck next to a fence post as it will take at least 45 minutes to get out.
    - if you are able to get a skid ster back there, use that instead!
