Grass plugs are a great tool for repairing damaged areas of the lawn or to establish a lawn when sod or seed is not available or practical. Use grass plugs to test a grass’s shade tolerance or to determine how well a certain grass type performs in your home landscape.
We recommend planting plugs 9″-12″ apart (measured from center of the plug) in a grid for best results. Spaced 12″ apart, each plug will cover one square foot. Depending on the variety chosen, planting season, and location plugs will usually fill in completely in 6-12 months. For best results when planting plugs, be sure to clean old grass and leaves out of the area to be planted and loosen the soil. Plugs are ideally planted in early to mid spring, but can be planted throughout the year in the southern US. Plugs will not grow in winter when grass is dormant or the ground is frozen.
