Using Red Dirt for stability

Oklahoma is known for its red dirt. While our native soil is not best suited for gardening, it is a very stable soil.

The high clay content in red dirt causes it to pack together much tighter than brown soils. This is why the iron rich Red Select is the most commonly sold soil for construction and building purposes. The high stability of this soil makes it ideal for building up a foundation, raising a low area, building pads for houses, barns, stables, portable buildings or sheds. Red Select is best worked with a tractor or bobcat. Along with Red Selects ability as a compacting soil, it is also very economical due to its availability. Metro Materials offers this soil, along with Garden ready Rich Mix, Topsoil, Driveway Gravel, Decorative River Rock Stone & Mr. Mulch brand mulches in the Oklahoma City Metro Area. Red Select is readily available in our region, so we can usually schedule same to next day deliveries in five 5 or ten 10 cubic yard dump truck loads.

Our Delivery area includes Oklahoma City, Norman, Moore, Mid-West City, Del City, Newcastle, Blanchard, Noble, Little Axe and as far north as Edmond.
