Limestone is a fundamental stone in varying sizes, perfect for increasing the aesthetic landscape appeal of any garden. Initially, the rock will be of a white hue due to the limestone dust generated by the tumbling of the rock but will fade into a darker shade over time or after washing.
This 3/4" to 1" Limestone is the smallest variation you can purchase. Other than the size difference, the appearance throughout the sizes will generally be the same. This "small" sized Limestone is more inviting and comfortable to walk on as opposed to larger Limestones, making it easier to walk on and place around stepping stones or patios!
Drawing from our experiences, we normally install our Limestone products with a thicker fabric (~5 oz). By installing a thicker fabric, it will assist with the following:
Separation of topsoil or base material for easy cleaning.
Defence against, not the elimination of weeds. The removal of weeds will be easier as the roots of grown weeds will not be able to take heavy root into the soil with the fabric being present.
The smaller limestone has a larger surface area to volume ratio which will assist with the defence against weeds as opposed to larger Limestones!
