Limestone paving slabs are almost similar to sandstone paving slabs in terms of performance. However, limestone slabs have a naturally flat and smooth appearance, limestone paving slabs are the preferred option due to their naturally smooth surface, it making them a soft touch on the foot compared to sandstone paving when it comes to patio gardens.

In terms of colour options, limestone paving is more limited compared to natural sandstone. Usually, the available colours include black, grey, yellow, beige, and blue.
Black limestone and blue limestone are typically produced into a sawn edge, which gives them a sharp and clean appearance. This sharpness adds to the overall feel of the natural stone, providing a more contemporary aesthetic. On the other hand, other colours of limestone, such as grey, yellow, and beige are often produced into a hand-cut and then tumbled finish. This additional process creates a soft surface and gives a sense of antiquity looks like the stone has been weathered and worn over a long time. This aged feeling adds a touch of nostalgia, making it particularly appealing for those who appreciate a more rustic or traditional refinement.
