Grass plugs are a great way to fill bare spots or test the performance of a turfgrass variety in your lawn before ordering sod. 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.
