Mayacama Red® is used in projects where color and durability is essential


BoDean Company offers its customers a vast selection of aggregates when it comes to grading and color. While all BoDean Company products start production in the same manner it is when the top of the rock is mined at the Mark West Quarry in the Mayacamas Mountain that it produces the reddish-tan colored aggregate that is ideal for landscaping projects looking to combine quality material with an aesthetic look and feel.

What is Mayacama Red®

Mayacama Red® is a trademarked aggregate product produced exclusively by BoDean Company at its Mark West Quarry, which is located at the base of the Mayacamas Mountains range. The Mayacamas Mountain range is located in northwestern California and is part of the Northern Inner Coast Ranges and the California Coast Ranges System. This 52-mile mountain range spans Mendocino and Lake Counties and extends south into Napa and Sonoma Counties.

This unique-to-BoDean product is a clean, hard and durable basaltic screened rock that has a natural reddish-brown color to it – Basaltic rocks are relatively rich in silica. Mayacama Red® is available in various sizes including:

  • 3/4″ Baserock
  • 3/8″ Pathway
  • Pathway Fines
  • 3/4″ Drain Rock

How is Mayacama Red® used?

Mayacama Red® is often used by local vineyards and wineries as a walking path, driveway or parking area material. This same product is often used by the state park system for similar purposes as this popular material is perfect when both color and durability are important.

The most common uses for Mayacama Red® include:

  • Driveways and Parking Areas – Mayacama Red® can be used in a similar fashion to baserock to create a driveway for homes or business. This product is made to compact tightly and makes for a solid base for both driveways and parking areas.
  • Landscaping – Mayacama Red’s® unique aesthetic features, including its rich, natural coloring, make this product ideal for use in landscaping. This product can be seen as a more decorative rock or material but its ability to provide substance and stability make it useful as well.
  • Pathways – Mayacama Red® can be used to create beautiful pathways for various uses, including in state parks for hiking trails. The Golden Gate Bridge also features pathways made of Mayacama Red®.
  • Baseball Infield Mix– Mayacama Red® meets the specifications for baseball infield and pathways.
