This is what I'm planting into. Just a little black dirt over clay. If I did deep enough the clay turns from red to blue but no punching through any hardpan here. Sloped garden drains quickly which is good in some cases but hard to keep proper moisture when the summer drought hits. Trying something new this year. Augering out several holes and filling with dirt/potting soil mix to hopefully act as a retention spot for some moisture as our summer goes on that the roots can find.
