Hard soil is "caused" by the lack of healthy beneficial microbes. They have died. You can recover them by putting several inches of mulch under the trees and watering. The microbes need a continual amount of moisture rather than teeter-tottering from fully dry to wet. Mulch will solve that problem for you. Reapply mulch every year as it decomposes.
Vermiculite will not do anything for you if you are going to let the soil surface dry out. Mulch is what you want.
