A dirty world
Time to put on my shoes and go move some of this stuff around a bit. It will be interesting to see how much I get done as I've not slept since yesterday morning.
Answer: not much. As suspected, the base soil, aka "the yard" is about 1/2 inch of poor clay soil on top of fill dirt and gravel. I can't even get a garden fork in more than a couple of inches. It's off to the hardware store for some landscape picks so I can pin down black plastic to kill off weeds and grass, and some shallow pots to plant flowers in until the soil loosens up some.
