Really basic question on blending....

.....ok, so I edit a layer over the background to improve the sky, and I want to erase the landscape below the horizon in this layer to reveal the version from the background layer: how do I do this so that I blend the edges and don't create a harsh separation?

I am using photoshop elements 3 for Mac.

I've played around a lot with curves (when I was using an older version of photoshop), levels, and unsharp mask, but blending remains a giant black box for me.
