Aqua Blue Limestone Paving
At Stone Zone, we pride ourselves on our fantastically priced range of Natural Stone Paving; a range with a variety of natural tones for your garden patio. We source our Paving Stones direct and responsibly from trusted Indian quarries, so are able to pass on the best prices to our customers.
Aqua Blue Limestone Paving, also known as Kota Blue Limestone, is one of our popular Indian Limestone Paving options with a very beautiful colour palette. This understated and unique blend of colours give off a light blue hue when dry and more grey tones when wet, ensuring that it looks beautiful no matter what the weather.
These paving slabs are calibrated to a 22mm depth which ensures perfect size consistency, long-lasting durability and a high quality when laying the slabs.
These grey paving slabs have a much higher porosity in comparison to Porcelain Paving, which are manufactured. This is caused by the fact that these slabs are naturally formed, and due to the nature of the material, they will also weather naturally as time passes by allowing moisture to penetrate its surface.

Looking After Your Paving
As we have mentioned before, Limestone is a natural stone and because of that, over time, they will fade to a slightly lighter shade of blue. However, to keep the colour as bright and vibrant as possible, we highly recommend purchasing the Azpects Easy Seal Slate and Limestone, which maintains the colour.
Finally, we also advise that you jet wash your Limestone Patio every 6 months to keep it clean of any dirt and debris.
What is the Difference Between Limestone and Sandstone Paving?
There are many similarities between Limestone and Sandstone Paving Slabs due to both of them deriving from Indian stone quarries that contain large rocks that have been formed over thousands of years.
As the more cost-effective option, Limestone is slightly more brittle when compared to Sandstone. But keep in mind that once Limestone has been laid, the durability will be the same as Sandstone Paving.
An aspect to take note of is that Limestone will naturally fade over time, whether or not Sealer is used. And this eventual fading does require some upkeeping to retain the original colour as long as possible. Maintaining the original colours in Sandstone Paving is slightly easier.
There are many varieties available for Sandstone and Limestone Paving. Sandstone and Limestone are available in Weathered Paving options, with Sandstone also being available as Sawn Paving too. If you also want matching garden edging or a nice patio paving border, matching Cobble Setts are also available for both Sandstone and Limestone Paving.
All in all, when deciding between Sandstone Paving or Limestone Paving, it really comes down to the colours you are after, and whether you are happy for your Indian Limestone to fade over time. Both require the same up-keep and have a lovely rustic look to them.
What is the Difference Between Limestone and Porcelain Paving?
There are many differences between Limestone Paving and Porcelain Paving, however. The major difference between the two ranges of garden paving is their make-up. Limestone, as we stated earlier, is a naturally formed stone, whereas porcelain Paving is manmade stone.
If you want your garden to have a rustic, muted aesthetic, Limestone is the best option. But if you want to go for something more unique and vibrant, we suggest you choose Porcelain Paving. Due to Porcelain Paving tiles being manufactured, it means we have a much larger variety of colour options and unique patterns available.
As you know, Limestone will weather as time passes, with the colour and the surface texture wearing away slightly. Porcelain, on the other hand, will always retain its colours and finish over time, provided you have looked after it over the years.
In conclusion, if you're wanting a low-maintenance garden patio, with plenty more colour options and sizes to choose from, we suggest you take a look at our Porcelain Paving range. If you're looking for a more economic range of paving slabs, that enjoy a natural and rustic look that will age with your property, go for Limestone Paving.
Did you know? We sell a 'Natural' Porcelain Paving range, which replicates our popular Natural Paving stones! Natural Blue Limestone Porcelain Paving is the range inspired by Aqua Kota Blue Limestone.
