Garden Stone Steps and Footpaths

Step out of your home and into a garden you love.

Whether you’re a gardening enthusiast, planning to engage a professional landscaper, have a large or small garden… this summer presents the perfect opportunity to transform your outdoor space into your dream country garden. 

At Hanbeck Natural Stone, we believe that every outdoor space deserves a touch of beauty mixed with functionality and that with small changes you make your garden a dream come true.

Why should I use Limestone? 

Limestone has soft, muted tones that blend effortlessly with the surrounding greenery, imparting a sense of calm and natural beauty into a space.

Limestone is known for its exceptional durability, making it an ideal choice for steps and footpaths. Its robust nature allows it to withstand heavy foot traffic and varying weather conditions, ensuring longevity and minimal maintenance. Safety is paramount, especially when it comes to outdoor surfaces. Limestone’s naturally textured surface provides excellent traction, reducing the risk of slips and falls even during wet or damp weather.

If you want to add a country garden feel into your outdoor space this year, you can do so very easily with steps and footpaths; no matter the size of your space.

1. Footpaths can be used for many things depending on the size of the space…

Imagine strolling through your garden on a sunny Sunday morning, steered by a limestone footpath with stepping stones guiding each step.  Adding stepping stones can allow you to take a journey from the main footpath, perhaps leading you to a shed or greenhouse.

A simple limestone gravel footpath can be your route straight to the end of the garden where the sun lies to drink your cup of tea or enjoy that BBQ with friends. 

No matter the size, as you stroll along the footpath, notice the gentle crunch beneath your feet and the delicate flower bursting with vibrant colours and fragrances. 

2.  Steps can help bridge the gap between levels in your garden or simply add an interesting feature. 

If you have a multi-level garden, allow it to stay true to its charming style by adding limestone steps to guide you from one level to another. 

With their inherent earthy tones and weathered appearance, limestone steps merge with the country garden ambiance, adding an authentic touch to the landscape.

Perhaps you just want to add an eye-catching design feature or a focal point within the garden. By incorporating different materials such as stone, they become artistic elements that enhance the aesthetics and uniqueness of your space. 


We invite you to unlock your garden's potential and think outside the box this year. For any questions about using Limestone for your garden get in touch with us today.
