Limestone pavement slabs have magnificent and attractive natural texture and colours, as well as being high density and having fewer pores than various other stones, resulting in a high solidity and hardness. Limestone provides a quality and suitable material for outdoor garden and patio pavement, because of its natural surface shine and anti-slip qualities.
The main use for limestone paving is as flooring and walkway material, both internally and externally. Paving slabs are calibrated to a thickness of approximately 20mm – 22mm and are available in a range of sizes. View our range of limestone patio kits for a popular addition to your garden, or see our single-size limestone paving if you’re wanting a more linear look to your paving.
Limestone has an orange-peel texture due to its natural characteristics, and some options also have a natural split surface texture, in comparison to sandstone paving, on the other hand, which has a rippled texture and is slightly more uneven.
