I guess the dirt has been there for a long time since it's in the back yard. I used a post hole digger for the clay about 3-4 feet under that. The dirt is capped with pea gravel so any liquid ferts or waste from fish get down to the dirt. I recently been making some DIY root tabs with my liquid fertilizer and soaking it into clay and letting it dry.
