Limestone landscaping

Top Portuguese limestones for landscaping

Limestones are by nature softer types of natural stone, presenting limitations in terms of use in applications such as exterior landscaping where strength, hardness and low water absorption are required. There are however some limestones that present the technical characteristics for such uses and that are commonly used on a diversity of durable exterior landscaping applications. Below we present some:

Ataija Azul

Blue colored limestone, with fine grain and uniform background. The Lioz Azul limestone is one of the hardest limestones in Portugal and a preferential choice for diverse landscaping applications. It is commonly used in exterior street paving.

Ataija Creme

The beige colored variation of the Ataija Azul, this limestone has a fine grain, fairly uniform background and a well defined beige color. The Ataija Creme is one of the hardest limestones from Portugal and a preferential choice for diverse landscaping applications. It is commonly used in exterior street paving.

Moleanos Vidraco

This limestone variation of the well-known Moleanos Classic, represents a marginal part of the production and extraction within Moleanos quarries. However, the Moleanos Vidraco limestone presents a glassy structure that makes it a hard limestone and a great choice for exterior landscaping applications.

Moleanos Classic
