The clay soils provide a great foundation for roots to anchor firmly. SOILS. The ranch is underlain with three different types of soils consisting of clayey sediments. Kerrville gravelly clay loam, Oakalla silty clay loam and Pratley clay. These soils produce great vegetation to dress the ranch with native growth.
