How do I get rid of a filled-in swimming pool?

Previous owners of my house put a swimming pool in the backyard. Subsequent owners filled it in with dirt and planted grass, but left the edge (including the aqua tile and diving board stand). It looks really, really silly -- and not in a good way.
It's a cement (concrete? I never can get those straight) border, about two feet wide, going all the way around a normal-for-a-backyard-sized pool.
What can we do to get rid of it? Do we have to rent a jackhammer and tear up the concrete? Get lots of dirt and pour it over the entire yard to cover it? Hire a professional landscaper? We want to just have grass or clover, no sign of the pool at all.
