Default The Hard Work of Terraforming

I'm trying to imagine the work of terraforming goes down...

What kind of machinery would be used?

How much would be done by automation and how much would you have sophonts putting elbow grease into it?

What would the various jobs entail?

I'm thinking of a labour camp on a desolate planet, where prisoners are forced into terraforming it. But what kind of back-breaking jobs could they do?

Atmospheric processing would be done by big machines...

Maybe they would be useful for seeding the soil with engineered microbes and plants?
