Use Stone and Gravel as a Natural Defense against Wildfires in Oklahoma.
Oklahoma is no stranger to wildfires, our large fields and high winds spawn and fuel fires every year. One of the easiest things a homeowner can do to protect themselves from potential fires is to install a firebreak. A Firebreak is simply creating an area around your structure covered with Stone instead of vegetation. A Natural Stone barrier will keep the flames at a distance and your home safe. A firebreak of just a few feet can be the difference in thousands of dollars in potential damage. Metro Materials offers a few different stones that work great for firebreaks. The most economical option is our Limestone Screenings. This is a fine 3/8″ chat that packs down great creates a very solid surface for walking and high traffic areas. We also offer Screenings in Black Rhyolite and Gold Decomposed Granite. For more decorative and lower traffic areas consider using River Rock, These beautiful stones come in a variety of sizes from 3/8″ to 2 1/2″. If you need help determining how much stone it will take to surround your home, simply measure the length around your house, determine the width & depth you would like and use our calculator page to find out exactly how much material you need.
