Lester's Bulk Limestone - Delivery or Pickup


Limestone - Limestone is not indigenous to the Northern Illinois area. However, bringing aggregate limestone into the area is well worth the effort considering its many uses. Limestone is composed of fractured stones giving it its aggregate texture – you won’t find rounded pebbles in your limestone. Though different grades of limestone have different sizes of aggregate, even with limestone that has large pieces, there is also a thorough mix of fine aggregate particles.

The varying dimensions and the fractured texture of limestone combine to make limestone an effective packing material. As such, Grade 8 limestone aggregate is an excellent base for roads, driveways and pathways. It even works well as a surface material in some instances. However, since the aggregate tends to pack together tightly, it fails the test if you’re also looking for a material with good drainage properties.

The different aggregate sizes of limestone also work well for layering sub surfaces of roads and pathways, with the finer aggregate grades of limestone as a dressing at the top. Some of the common uses for limestone include:

  • As a base for asphalt and concrete roads, driveways, walkways and paths
  • Biking and walking paths
  • Horse stable arenas and stalls
  • Dog runs
  • As jointing material between flat boulder and flagstone surfaces
  • And many more uses …

Grades of limestone aggregate include:

2- to 3-inch Limestone – primarily a construction grade of Limestone

Limestone Screenings – this includes limestone aggregate that is relatively small down to fine particles. It can pack into a hard surface with limited drainage capacity. Its uses include:

  • On Bike Paths
  • Walking Paths
  • Horse Stable Arenas and Stalls
  • In Dog Runs (can irritate a dogs feet if the dog has cuts)
  • As Fill between Flat Boulders and Flagstone
  • Many Other Uses
