We stock a variety of sands and sand mixtures to serve many uses in building and landscaping projects. Our ballast mix of sand and gravel is essential for making concrete, while our sharp sand is useful for bedding paving slabs and blocks for patios and driveways. We also stock soft sand for building use, and play sand suitable for children’s sand pits.
Madingley Mulch are experienced ballast suppliers offering a range of quality products. Ballast is a mix of sharp sand and stone aggregate, mixed with cement and water to make concrete.
Our ballast can be used to make concrete for a wide range of uses, whether you need to create foundations or footings, to concrete in a fence post, or to make a slab for your patio. While sand is often used for more shallow jobs such as floor screeding, ballast is suitable for concrete for greater depths. If you need larger quantities of concrete, then our sister company Madmix can deliver mixed concrete to your site.
We supply several varieties of sand, each suitable for different purposes. This includes different types of building sand. Soft sand is a fine-graded sand which is suitable for making mortar, for a wide range of uses on a construction site. Sharp sand is more coarsely-grained and is suitable for use in external render or when laying paving slabs, as well as for screeding and some masonry applications.
Children’s play sand needs to be non-toxic and especially clean and soft in order to provide a safe and smooth playing surface, and must be free of stones. Our play sand has been carefully graded and washed to provide a safe play experience, and will not stain children’s clothing.
