Lime Stone is a cost-effective stone which if used correctly can give a up-market or Boutique look.
A very under used stone, we at Celtic Stonework mainly use two types, both are different in look and make-up.
Te Kuiti lime stone and Lime stone from a private quarry in Pirongia (Te pahu).
Both are ideal for the Spanish, Italian, Mediterranean look or even a Mexican look. Both go well with wrought iron.
Both can be laid as a dry stack or full mortar joint (See sample panels) these panels can be viewed at our yard in Pirongia by appointment.
Lime Stone from a private Te Pahu quarry.
This Lime stone has a beautiful, organic, dry stone wall look about it which is unique to the Waikato area.
Lime Stone from a Te Kuiti quarry.
This lime stone is from the Te Kuiti area - it has a touch of grey as well as the cream look - it also has a more modular look.
