What Is Limestone Gravel?

Limestone gravel is an aggregate made from limestone, which occurs naturally in shallow ocean beds. It can come in a wide variety of sizes and colours, making it a versatile material for a range of landscaping projects, and typically has a light-coloured hue such as white, light grey or cream, although other colours such as black or blue limestone are also available.

There are several benefits which make limestone gravel a fantastic option across a range of applications, such as its durability, low maintenance, and natural aesthetics. It is also typically available in bulk bag format and is easily sourced, providing a cost-effective solution for transforming your garden or driveway.

What Can Limestone Gravel Be Used For?

The versatility of limestone chippings means that they can be used for a wide range of functional applications, as well as for added aesthetic benefits such as brightening up an area of your garden. Popular uses of limestone gravel include:

  • Driveways and parking areas: Due to its superior durability, crushed limestone is a fantastic driveway solution, and can offer more stability than a lighter gravel material. This makes it excellent for high-traffic areas, as it can withstand heavy weights and is less likely to shift.
  • Landscaping: Limestone gravel is an attractive, natural material which can elevate any landscape or garden with its appealing light-coloured shades. As such, it is commonly used for creating eye-catching and modern design features such as garden walkways, borders or water features.
  • Drainage: Crushed limestone offers excellent drainage capabilities, and is therefore often used as a base for patio slabs and driveways. It can also be used in systems such as French drains, and can also help to prevent soil erosion.
  • Construction: Limestone chippings are used in a variety of construction projects, such as forming the base of a new road that needs to bear the weight of frequent vehicular traffic. It can also be used to make concrete, combining with water, cement and sand to create a durable construction material.
  • Agriculture: Another important use for limestone gravel is in agricultural industries, where it is used to create an aglime which can neutralise and regulate acidic soil. Aglime can also be used to improve soil quality and promote healthy plant growth.

What is the difference between gravel and limestone gravel?

Whilst gravel is made up of a mixture of crushed stones, most commonly basalt, limestone and sandstone, limestone gravel is solely composed of sedimentary limestone. The colour of limestone gravel is typically lighter, and the shape of limestone is more jagged than the smooth stones which make up gravel.
