Limestone paving slabs have a magnificent and attractive natural texture and rich earthy tones. With their high density and fewer pores compared to some other natural stones, limestone offers high strength and hardness, making it very durable and a great alternative to Indian Sandstone and Porcelain paving. This durability makes limestone a quality and suitable material for outdoor garden and patio paving, given its inherent non-slip qualities and subtle natural shine.
The primary use for limestone paving is as an attractive yet hardwearing flooring and walkway material, both inside the home and out in the garden or patio. Limestone paving slabs are calibrated to approximately 20-22mm thickness and come in a diverse range of sizes to suit any project. Take a look at our range of versatile limestone patio kits for a popular way to pave a garden area, or see our single-size limestone paving options if you prefer a more linear look to your paved space.
Limestone has a natural orange-peel texture owing to its unique characteristics. Some varieties also have an inherent split surface texture, compared to the more rippled and slightly uneven texture of sandstone paving such as Indian sandstone. If you prefer a brighter golden yellow paving instead, we also offer options in this bold hue that can make a striking statement. For a contemporary edge, porcelain paving delivers a very smooth surface and crisp lines in a range of muted tones. Whatever your taste, we are sure to have a paving product that suits, whether sold individually or conveniently bundled into patio packs or you can purchase limestone slabs not in a patio kit in sizes such as 900 x 600, 900 x 450 and 600 x 600 If you have any other questions, feel free to contact us at email@example.com
