These are Granite, which is a much more stable stone than limestone. There are several different grades of limestone, so make sure that your installer knows what he is doing and is educated about the stone.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Great Design Plant: Black Mondo Grass
How to use it. Mass plant black mondo grass or use it as a planter accent, along a path, or in a rock garden.
LuAnn Brandsen added this to Pathway Plantings That Please the Senses
3. Rock loversPlants can slip just about anywhere they have access to soil and water. Here, black mondo grass, coral bells, sedum and low-growing evergreens thrive between a rock and a hard place.
Almost like stepping stones, these steps sit within a mixture of sedum plants that relish the conditions that the granite blocks create. Larger plants, including the black mondo grass (Ophiopogon planiscapus ‘Nigrescens’, zones 5 to 10), are starting to colonize the crevices created at the sides and backs of the steps’ treads.

Almost like stepping stones, these steps sit within a mixture of sedum plants that relish the conditions that the granite blocks create. Larger plants, including the black mondo grass (Ophiopogon planiscapus ‘Nigrescens’, zones 5 to 10), are starting to colonize the crevices created at the sides and backs of the steps’ treads.
