Dirt capped with sand and gravel?

Ok so I just registered to this site because it seems like this forum knows a lot about planted tanks hence the forum name. alright anyways I'm going to be getting a 55 gallon tank soon and I want to do a dirted tank. I already got a 20 gallon tank full of fish and plants and will move some over to the 55. My question is if I use miracle grow organic matter and cap it with gravel in the back and in the front a area with sand so my cories can play and dig around will it work I'm using the gravel in the back so nutrients can get down to the soil.

IME they mix together.

If you agreed with me we'd both be right.
