Carbon Black Limestone Paving (Weathered)
Black Weathered Limestone Paving is one of our more rustic Indian Limestone Paving options. This classic, dark grey paving slab works well for those who enjoy a more rugged-looking garden patio.
To ensure long-lasting durability and efficient paving installation, these paving slabs are calibrated to 22mm depth. This also creates consistency in size to help them look more uniform.
We source all our Natural Stone Paving direct from our trusted suppliers in India. In doing so, we are able to guarantee our customers the best prices.
As these slabs are formed naturally in stone quarries, they have a higher level of porosity in comparison to Porcelain Paving, which are manufactured. Therefore, it is important to understand because of the nature of the material, they will weather over time as they allow moisture to penetrate its surface.

- Different sizes available, including patio packs
- Creates a natural, yet modern garden finish

Black Paving Slabs for Your Garden
These Weathered paving stones have a rough and textured finish. These flagstones are a popular choice for a wide range of projects, varying from front and back gardens to create a rustic yet characteristic atmosphere for entertaining your friends and family.
Why Choose Weathered Paving?
If you're not one for a modern, sleek garden patio, and much prefer something that looks really natural, then our Weathered Paving range is a great choice.
Weathered Paving gives off a gentler and softer look to your front or back garden and is great if you want to achieve a more understated and weather-worn look.
This particular Paving possesses a timeless quality, and goes extremely well with period properties, to give off the impression that these stones were laid a very long time ago and has gone through the effects of the weather.
Please keep in mind that in no way is the integrity and the durability of the paving is compromised, choosing a weathered paving is solely based on the personal preference of the buyer.

Looking After Your Paving
We strongly recommend that alongside your paving, you also purchase Azpects Easy Seal Back to Black. We think its the best option because, as we have stated before, the Carbon Black colour will eventually fade to a grey hue. This occurs due to the fact these are made of natural stone.
It is also best practice to jet wash your Limestone Patio twice a year to wash any dirt and debris that has accumulated.
What is the Difference Between Limestone and Sandstone Paving?
Limestone and Sandstone Paving have many similarities, but the most prominent one is the fact that they are both from Indian stone quarries and are paving stones that have been cut from large stones that would have been around for thousands of years.
Although Limestone is more of a budget-friendly paving stone, which is a great benefit, it is important to know that it is slightly more brittle in nature when compared to Sandstone. But please keep in mind that once laid, they have the exact same durability.
Limestone will fade naturally whether or not a Sealer has been used. This does entail more effort to maintain the original colour. On the other hand, Sandstone Paving is easier to manage when concerning colour maintenance.
It is also useful to know that both our Sandstone Paving and Limestone Paving have been re-created as Porcelain Paving; within our Natural Porcelain Paving range.
What is the Difference Between Limestone and Porcelain Paving?
There are various differences between Limestone and Porcelain Paving. The most vital difference is the way in which they are formed. Limestone, as we have already explained, are naturally formed paving slabs whereas Porcelain Paving is manmade.
With Porcelain Paving being a manufactured exterior paving tile, it means it will possess more favourable characteristics such as being stronger in durability. It also means there are many more colour options and finishes when it comes to this manufactured stone.
As time passes Limestone will weather naturally, with slight changes occurring to the colour and surface texture. But, Porcelain is able to keep its colours and finishes easily due to them being manufactured. Limestone will also require much more maintenance than Porcelain Paving.
The overall look of Porcelain Paving compared to Natural Stone Paving is totally different, especially when comparing the weathered range. Porcelain Paving is designed for contemporary, sleek garden patios, whereas Stone Paving slabs will emit more of a rustic, natural paved garden.
