Running a business as a uni student

It can be expensive to study at university and many students need to get a job to help support them. However, it can be just as lucrative to run your own business and it can be a great way to boost your resume. There are many inspiring stories of university students who have put their classroom studies into practice and launched successful businesses whilst still studying. This blog has some profiles of successful businesses started by students as well as some articles on identifying businesses that can be run by a student. I hope it's inspiring to a new generation of business owners.

Seeding vs Sodding: Which Is Best for Creating Your New Residential Lawn?

The decision to install a beautiful natural lawn can be a big one. In addition to determining which type of lawn you should use, you'll also need to think of the best way to install your new lawn.

Seeding and sodding are the two main options for creating a natural lawn in your residential landscape. Each has unique pros and cons that influence their suitability for use in certain lawn installation applications.

Here's what to know about each option so you can make a well-informed decision on the best way to establish your new lawn.

Seeding

Growing grass seed is the cheapest method of installing a natural lawn, but you'll need to figure out the right seed mix for your location and soil. The seed mix does not have to be installed instantly. It can be stored until the ground is ready for the seed to be planted and the weather is nice for seed growth. Any excess seed can be stored in a cool and dry place and used for future lawn repairs. 

Grass seed can be planted by hand, but this was often a tedious and time-consuming job. These days, hydraulic seeding machines exist for use in seeding applications. These machines allow the spraying of seed mix over an area of land to allow for the faster establishment of natural lawns. 

While seeding can be an effective way to create a natural lawn, there is an overwhelming variety of seed mixes to choose from. As a result, you may struggle to find the right seed mix for your requirements.

Also, it takes time to create a lawn that's ready for normal lawn traffic.  

Sodding 

If you want to create a lawn that will provide immediate gratification, you can't go wrong with sod. Grass sod comprises mature grass that has been harvested from a lawn farm to be transferred to a new property for lawn establishment. Before the grass can be moved to the new site, the ground will have to be prepped to ensure optimal soil conditions for lawn establishment.

Although sod delivers near-instant results and can be installed anytime during the growing season, it is much more labour-intensive and expensive than seeding.

Both seeding and sodding are effective methods of natural lawn establishment. However, the best option for your lawn installation project depends on your specific requirements and budget. Consult a professional lawn installer if you need help determining the best way to create your residential lawn.
