Welcome to Geoff Woods | Peninsula Limestone.

This website is a showcase for the unique features and products produced by Geoff Woods.

Over the years we have made countless tables, fireplaces, and outdoor settings. Our products have been featured on tv shows such as Sale of the Century and Burke's Backyard. More recently some of our limestone tables were used on the set of the film Queen of the Damned [sequel to Interview with the Vampire].

We are currently concentrating on the development of specialty limestone features. You can see examples of feature walls being built in the showcase section of our website. Other specialty features include, tiles, ponds and water fountains.

However, we are not limited to only building these features so, if you have an idea for a feature you'd like to have built don't hesitate to contact us. We offer a complete supply and installation service including expert advice from a career that has spanned more than 15 years. We stand by the quality and workmanship of our products, so if you're looking for a natural but unique touch, limestone is a natural alternative.



Maintaining Limestone

When limestone is not sealed properly, a discolouration can occur to the natural colour of the stone. Peninsula Limestone also specialises in the cleaning and sealing of the limestone as well as the supply of limestone sealer. Geoff Woods can also offer expert advice in the this area of how to maintain any limestone that you have, whether it be your house or a feature.

If you are unfamiliar with limestone we have included some further information below.



Limestone

Limestone is a natural product which is produced through a combined result of a few processes. It can be formed through deposits of marine invertebrates skeletons which over a period of time will form limestone. When splitting limestone, evidence of this can often be found by the presence of fossils embedded in the stone.

Other limestones can orginate due to a chemical precipitation from a solution. Limestone in general terms is sedimentary rock which can be wholly or largely composed of calcim carbonate.

The nature of limestone colour is usually white but considering its environments can vary. Colouring can result due to impurities; carbon can affect limestone by making it black, blue or grey and iron oxide can cause limestone to turn brown, yellow or red.
