Product details

Kota Blue limestone

Kota Blue Limestone Paving Slabs are quarried from a blue/grey natural limestone. The slabs have straight sawn edges, are calibrated to 22mm depth and feature a soft, light-riven orange-peel like surface that is characteristic of limestone paving. It is available in two mixed-size packs (15m² and 4.63m² coverage) and two single-size packs (600x600mm/14.04m² and 900x600mm/12.96m²).

Kota Blue Colouring

Kota Blue limestone is blue/grey in hue, and is often referred to as smokey-blue, steel-blue or cadet grey (like West Point Academy uniforms). Kota Blue will have hints of azure, aquamarine and turquoise blue tones in this limestone too. These “bluer” hues will appear stronger and stand out more when the stones are wet.

Additionally, this Kota Blue natural limestone can have flecks and veins of blue, grey and white particulates made up of the coral sands that largely formed this sedimentary rock on the seabeds over millions of years. These “highlight” particulates are what give this stone its natural patterning and character.

Limestone Patio Paving

Patios, terraces, paths and garden features have been paved using limestone for millennia. Limestone is a tried and tested natural stone paving material that is “soft” enough to be easily quarried, hewn and worked by masons, but hard and durable enough to last many lifetimes underfoot. This combination of an easily worked stone that is also long-lasting and very durable, is why you’ll see limestone paving in Roman villas, medieval abbeys, Jacobean lodges and Regency townhouses alike.

Sawn Paving: Traditional & Contemporary Aesthetics

Whilst limestone is ideal for traditional landscaping for all types of period homes and gardens, these sawn limestone slabs can also be used for more contemporary aesthetics when narrow-jointed. The sawn straight edges of these Kota Blue paving slabs allows them to be laid closer together, providing a more contemporary look and feel.

Indian Limestone

We source this paving from Kota, Rajasthan in India. It is specially selected by our quarry team and is a high-quality limestone. The stone is hewn, processed, sawn and calibrated to produce this paving. The calibration process ensures that the slabs are a uniform thickness (22mm) as this makes laying them simply and quicker when landscaping.

Limestone Surface Finish

When limestone is hewn into slabs the surface is flatter and softer riven compared to sandstone. This smoother, light-riven surface has a dimpled texture similar to orange-peel and feels lovely and ‘soft’ underfoot! Whilst softer riven, the finish still offers good levels of grip and anti-slip properties too.

Installation Advice

We recommend the patio is installed on a sub-base of at least 150mm of compacted DTp1 (MOT) hardcore on which the laying bed of mortar will then be placed.

As with all paving slabs, these limestone slabs should be laid on a full bed of mortar and priming slurry should be applied to the underside of the slabs to ensure good bonding and adhesion.

Joint your patio with Pointfix jointing compound which is an all-weather epoxy-based product that is quick and easy to use and will help prevent weeds and provide the ideal performance you need for your paving joints.

Maintenance: Sealing

We suggest sealing these limestone slabs with either a Natural Finish Stone Sealer and Colour Enhancing Stone Sealer to protect them from spills, stains and other blemishes.

Maintenance: Cleaning

CAUTION: Never use acid-based cleaning products on any limestone paving products as this will permanently damage its appearance and surface structure. Brick acid should NEVER be used to clean mortar stains from limestone paving.
