Help sourcing limestone planter block in St. Louis, MO

designstl(6)June 17, 2013

I was wondering if anyone in Missouri (St. Louis area) could recommend a good, inexpensive source for cut limestone blocks? I am not sure if I am even calling them by the correct name but I saved an article from This Old House from several years ago that refers to them as 'limestone planter block'. Basically I am looking for limestone blocks to dry stack for a 2' garden wall. I attached a picture of what i am referring to, though I don't even need them to be as large as in the picture. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

In the Kansas City market place--the above stone can be purchased at the Home Depot--maybe a little more white than the traditional yellow

i go into the hood & look for buildings being demolished. the bricks are always recycled & sold but there is not a lot of interest in foundation stone. it's not as uniform as the stone in your photo but good cut stone can be found & the price is right.

The blocks in the picture are referred to as retaining wall stone and they normally come in 8" widths with different thicknesses. I searched for landscape supplies and found this Kirkwood Material Supply Inc - Kirkwood - Saint Louis, MO (314) 822-9644 they should be able to help you source the wall stone .
