What are the benefits of a limestone wall?

Limestone wall around a courtyard There’s something quite elegant about a stone wall, compared to a fence. Some walls have a dual purpose – retaining walls are commonly found in private gardens, around office blocks, schools or public buildings. You may not have noticed them, but they can be a great addition providing structural support to prevent earth movement. Here at Creative Limestone, we think limestone walls are the best type around as they are hardwearing, versatile, aesthetically pleasing and add an extra dimension to any yard or garden. There are many reasons why you may want to choose limestone which experts regard as one of the most durable, all-natural building materials in the world. What Are The benefits of a limestone wall are endless

They are Strong and Hard Wearing

A limestone wall is exceptionally robust. Limestone is one of the most popular materials used in the building industry and has been around for centuries. Look at the Great Pyramid at Giza in Egypt, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World built thousands of years ago around 2500 BC and still standing today. 

Local Produce

Limestone deposits are common in Western Australia. The sedimentary rock is formed with shell fragments, skeletal remains from the sea, sand and small pebbles which bond together. This process can take millions of years and results in limestone, which is durable and robust.

Natural and beautiful

Limestone is ideal for any feature wall. It’s a beautiful natural stone, with a neutral colour which will blend in with surroundings exceptionally well. Limestone blocks or pavers are cut with diamond tip saws, and depending on what you require, the finish can be either rough or smooth. Limestone walls can add beauty and character to any home and will never look outdated or go out of fashion.

Complement other limestone

You could also consider limestone elsewhere around your home. Limestone walls could be matched to footpaths, stone benches and pavers or even cladding on the house. The more you use it, the more elegant and uniform your house will be. Combining different limestone features will make your house admired by all.

Minimal maintenance

Limestone walls require minimum maintenance; there’s no need to paint or have it waterproofed. It’s also affordable; there’s a misconception that limestone blocks can be expensive, but as it’s so plentiful it can be as cheap as clay bricks. 

Environmentally friendly

There’s plenty of limestone quarried here in Western Australia, so it doesn’t have to be transported from afar. There is no environmental impact when you cut the natural stone, and if you ever did want to take your wall down, you could reutilise the blocks elsewhere.

Great product, excellent craftsmanship and helpful service.


I have used Creative Limestone for my front wall and they are amazing


We purchased a difficult block that required a lot of site works and retaining, which was daunting at first. We had several contractors quote the work but found Mark from Creative Limestone to be the most friendly and professional by far. We quickly had a written quote and knew exactly what we were up for from the start. Mark would regularly contact us with updates, and once the site works started, our retaining wall was built promptly and finished perfectly. Mark helped us beyond finishing the wall with contacts for other trades and completing our site works ready to build. I have already recommended Creative Limestone to our friends and would not hesitate to call Creative Limestone if we need any work done in the future.


After having worked with you and your team, I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to my colleagues and others. I have found you to be straight up and down [as I like] and always willing to help find the best solution [especially when it wasn’t the last solution]. In dealing with the public you have been reliable and have taken responsibility for ensuring any issues are resolved without the need for my involvement. Add to that quality of workmanship and a competitive price, and Creative Limestone has a compelling story to tell.
