New Delivery Charges from 1st February 2023

After a period of quite severe inflationary pressure where we have absorbed supplier price increases as far as possible, to ensure we can maintain our service levels we have made the decision to introduce a charging mechanism that more accurately reflects the actual costs incurred in making a lorry delivery to our customers.
As many of you will be aware, these are the first changes to our delivery charges since Madingley Mulch began trading in 1999!
The following changes will be made from 1st February: Our minimum order value eligible for delivery will increase from £40 to £50 Delivery charges will now be applied to all orders to reflect the combined cost of distance travelled and space taken up on the lorry.
Please see our delivery page for more information about the new charges.

Key Advantages of Garden Edging Stones

Are you tired of weeds growing into your flower beds? Are you worried you don’t have the time to devote to keeping your garden neat and tidy? Edging stones could be the answer – and will be a stylish, inexpensive addition to any garden.

At Madingley Mulch, we are suppliers of decorative garden edging stones to customers in Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Essex and Hertfordshire. Here we outline their key advantages.

It Cuts Down Your Workload

One of the biggest problems of any garden is that plants grow where you don’t want them to. Installing decorative stones well above and below the soil line should stop any weeds, and invasive couch grass, from encroaching into your flower beds.

It also makes other tasks such as mowing and strimming much simpler as you can see clearly where the lawn ends and the flower beds begin – and you don’t have to worry about any grass clippings blowing into onto your prized plants.

It Keeps Mulch Within the Plant Beds

As well as keeping weeds out, edging also keeps composts, soil conditioners and mulches in. This means your flowers and plants will enjoy the maximum benefit of products such as Madingley Mulch’s Denise’s Delight, an exclusive mixture of Black Fen soil, horse manure, wood shavings, humus and other plant nutrients.

We also offer a variety of other soil improvers, including Tony’s Tonic, a mix of wood shavings and horse manure, horticultural grit and spent mushroom compost, from our store near Cambridge.

It Protects Driveways and Paths

Driveways and paths also benefit from garden edging, particularly if they contain gravel or stone chippings. Without this barrier, the stones can easily end up inside your home, or encroach onto the lawn, potentially damaging your mower.

Edging can also protect asphalt and concrete driveways from cracking or chipping – and it will show motorists exactly where they can and can’t park their vehicles!

It Gives Your Home Kerb Appeal

There are plenty of aesthetic advantages to installing edging as well. It gives your garden a much more clearly-defined, tidy look, showing that you care about it, even if it has reduced your horticultural workload. It’s the very definition of ‘kerb appeal’ – a phrase estate agents use for properties which are much more attractive to would-be buyers.

Edging also helps to separate out different parts of your garden, making it easy to create separate zones such as wildlife-friendly beds and children’s areas.
