Hi TDM if your in the rear garden you could simply build raised beds,at our allotment we have only 12" of soil so we all raise with top soil and manure then mulch as much as we can,if looks arnt important scaffold boards cost about ??4 each and work perfectly,if you want nicer looking ones upmarket the timber
