For many construction projects, aggregates are used as an essential building material, often as a sub-base or primary material. A popular choice is limestone which is a sedimentary rock compound made up of one type of rock.
Limestone chippings are a high-quality, angular crushed aggregate that provides excellent durability and long-lasting performance. They also make an excellent material for garden and driveway projects.
The naturally sourced aggregate can vary in colour, texture and size so therefore provides a more unique alternative to gravel and other stone types.

Alternative to limestone chippings
If you’re looking for an alternative to limestone chippings, depending on its use, you may want to consider shingle for paving and driveway projects.
Shingle stones are typically more rounded and smoother than limestone, so often create a softer finish for driveways and paths. However, shingle driveways will become displaced and scattered more easily than limestone driveways.
