One year I had a similar super-hard-ground issue. It was so hard that I couldn't even pound in the rebar that hold up my stones (as Baron Samedi suggested above, a lot of us use pvc pipe glued to the back of the stones, or have drilled holes in the bottom of the stones to accept the rebar). A trip to my local home center provided me with a "planting auger". Basically a heavy duty drill bit designed for planting bulbs. You may have seen the gigantic one that Billy Mays pitches on TV called "the ground aug". The one from my home center was only about 2" across. It went through that dry hard ground like nothing, leaving the soil soft enough to get the rebar in.

Alternatively, have you considered watering your lawn every day for a few hours starting the week before you need to install your stones?
