Description

Clear limestone is free of fines, making it ideal in places where you need drainage. Because Clear Limestone does not compact, it ensures drainage through the stone bed.

Our limestones have fractured faces, preventing rolling or shifting once in place. Washed, scrubbed & rinsed to eliminate dust, Greely’s limestone is ideal in areas where workers are present, such as ditches or in tight waterproofing spots.

A clear, angular stone without any fines, Clear Limestone, is a versatile product that has widespread appeal among landscapers and contractors worldwide.

Homogenous in colour, limestone has a definite visual appeal that some other stones don’t have. These can add a design element to a landscaping project or a property design application.

The Difference Between Clear Stone and Crushed Stone

Limestone is an aggregate composed of calcium carbonate. After it is mined, the stone is then crushed or cut to specific sizes where it can be used in various applications. It is important to choose the right product for your project.

Clear Stone is most commonly used in drainage situations such as around weeping tile, as a base for poured concrete or in window wells. Because it does not pack together, it offers built-in drainage. Clear stone is sometimes known as drainage stone.

Crushed stone, a mixture of stone dust and stone of various sizes, packs together nicely. Ideal for situations where you need it to pack together, crushed stone is the product you want for walkways & driveways, or anywhere you need a good, hard base.

What is Gravel?

Gravel is a term to describe a mix of stones or pebbles that have been worn smooth by water. It is not a specific type of rock.

Limestone, on the other hand, is a specific type of rock. While it can be found in gravel, limestone is often more jagged than most gravel stone.

Limestone is stable and long-lasting. So much so limestone was used to construct Egypt’s Great Pyramids!

Like nearly any product of the Earth, the rarer, the more expensive it is to buy. One of the most commonly available rocks on the planet and readily available in large quantities, limestone is exceptionally affordable.
