We are in Youngstown, Ohio...right in the middle of it.  Started in one corner of the three city lot plot about 5 years ago, now have 2 lots fully gardened.  The front half is my take on the Back to Eden method and is city clay covered in a foot or better of tree service tree chips.  The trees are doing great, as are the thistle.  I may cardboard the whole front and add compost and another layer of chips.

Outstanding ! Very impressive, I love the Victorian garden style of it.
