Limestone in Muskoka, Ontario

While all types of stone have a history to how they were made, limestone has a particularly interesting one. Eons ago, the bones of fish, sea creatures and other shells and sediment formed slabs of this material. Once compressed into a solid mass for thousands and thousands of years, limestone was created. Limestone has many different uses, including everything from fertilizer, the lining of ponds, building facets and walkways. Here at Maxwell Stone, we are here to help you find the limestone that is right for your Muskoka, Ontario property.

Limestone is known for its ability to withstand harsh elements for thousands of years. In fact, many of the world’s oldest and historic structures have withstood the test of time due to their limestone content. Structures such as the pyramids, certain Greek statues and monuments are standing today due to the durability of limestone. The variations in the types and colours of limestone all vary due to their differing mineral content, so you’re sure to find something that will suit the style or colour of your structure.

Even if you don’t intend for your patio or garden to still be standing in thousands of years, there’s no denying the versatility and durability of limestone!
