To improvement of soil characteristics for maintaining its allowable load sustainability, deformation and stability understanding of soils nature in creation of model by mixing soil technique is first requirement at design of soil foundation.  In this investigation 31 mixed soil model were developed, and effect of liquid limit and plastic limit in controlling soil bearing capacity under loose and compacted condition evaluated, and to achieve soil behavior SEM and XRD results of any of soils have been used, the result revealed soil plasticity has direct correlation with soil bearing capacity, stability and deformation, and these characteristics could be controlled if percentage of mixed soil accurate is selected or soil mineralogy and morphology controlled.
