Limestone will dissolve in contact with acidic soils that are common in some areas. I have a piece that broke off a step and was in the soil for about a year, and it is seriously "corroded".

Limestone is a very porous substance and capable of leeching its elements with application of water over time. The leeched products contain substances that may be toxic to vegetation.
