Black Limestone is a popular choice particularly in heavily planted gardens as the dark slabs offer a contrast to floral areas and turf with its natural cleft surface and hand chiseled edges, Black Limestone paving slabs are perfect for areas where slate is prevalent and where a contrasting color is required from light to dark. This Natural Limestone paving fades in color over a time, so to ensure that it retains its color we recommend sealing the paving or setts with color enhancers as soon as possible after installation. This prevents the Limestone paving from fading, preserving the deep jet black color. It is also commonly used around ponds and water features. It is very distinctive and creates a modern look.
