Grass plugs are individual turf plants grown in trays. They are small clumps of grass that can be used to repair damaged areas of lawns, fill in patches of bare soil, trial a new grass type, or even start a new lawn. Grass plugs are relatively inexpensive and easy to plant, and they grow quickly enough that you won’t have to wait long before they look good in your lawn. Here are some benefits of using grass plugs:

  • Grass plugs establish faster and require less water than seed.
  • Plugs are a more affordable option compared to sod, making them a cost-effective choice.
  • Dog Tuff Bermudagrass Plugs are easy to establish and easy to maintain.
  • They provide a natural solution for repairing a damaged lawn, particularly in small areas.
  • You can use plugs for fun and creative DIY projects.
  • They are effective for repairing or filling in damaged spots.
  • You can test different grass varieties before committing to a full sod order.

Our 72-count plug trays can cover up to 72 square feet when spaced 6–18 inches apart on center. For quicker ground cover, plant each plug closer together. Each plug is 1.25 inches long x 1.25 inches wide x 2 inches tall.”

To install grass plugs, follow these steps:

  1. Collect a soil sample and make any required soil amendments to create a conducive environment for plugs to grow.
  2. Prepare the soil by removing any weeds or debris. Mow existing lawn close to the ground. Rake the soil smooth and level.
  3. Water the soil thoroughly.
  4. Dig up or use an auger bit to drill holes for the plugs, spacing each hole 6–18 inches apart.
  5. Fertilize the holes before planting the grass plugs with a fertilizer that has a lot of phosphorus like Lawnifi Grow, the first bottle of the New Lawn Starter Box. Use Soil Moist Granules to reduce plant stress and watering.
  6. Press the plugs into the soil firmly, and use additional soil to fill the holes, ensuring the plugs are securely positioned and upright in the ground. The grass blades should be level with the ground.
  7. Keep the soil moist 6–8 inches deep every day until the plugs are established for the first 10–20 days after installation. This may require 2–4 waterings per day. Once new runners start to appear, decrease watering to twice a week.
  8. Ensure firm root establishment before mowing; gently tug a section to check. Mow only when the grass is dry to avoid soil compression and root issues. Set your mower at the highest level initially to prevent a vacuum effect; lower it gradually for future mowings.

Our high-quality grass plugs are shipped Monday–Wednesday to guarantee their arrival before the weekend. This ensures that your grass plugs typically reach most locations in the US by Saturday.

For cost-effective shipping, remember that 3 plugs fit in a single box. Consider ordering 3 at a time if you anticipate needing more to cover your area. Save on shipping and enjoy your lush, green lawn!

It’s important to note that your plugs are living plants. After receiving the package, unpack the plug trays from the box right away. Some slight discoloration from lack of oxygen and sunlight during shipping may occur. Place the trays in a single layer and water the plugs immediately. We recommend planting your grass plugs as soon as possible but don’t worry if you can’t get to them right away, keep them moist until you are ready to plant them. For planting details click here.

Plugs arrived in a half dormant/half green state. I’ve had them in the ground for about 3 weeks now and admittedly I did not follow the fertilization instructions to a T. However all plugs are established and shooting stolons at this time. I’m excited to see how fast they will spread.

My only critique, if you plan to use the Soil Moist product, DO NOT replicate what you see in the sod solutions video with regard to planting with it. I put maybe a pinch of the crystals in every hole and mixed it into the soil. After the first few waterings many plugs were getting pushed up out of the ground because of the swollen crystal-jelly balls. If you follow how much they apply to the hole in the video, they’ll get blasted into low earth orbit.

Still dormant. But look okay for now. Think they should be fine.

Remains to be seen

I can’t write a review on a grass plug I’ve only recently planted. I can review the condition it arrived in, the plugs were fully yellowed and thinned out like they weren’t in great condition before shipping. I’ve had awesome deliveries in the past, so I can tell you this isn’t their norm. If the plugs rebound and fill in like a dream I would revise my review, but it’s too early to tell actual performance.

Healthy and growing

I never purchased plugs before. I was Nervous . They arrived and all the plugs looked great . I planted All 3 packs. It’s been 3 weeks! Every single one is alive and just started to reach to spread. I couldn’t be happier . Dogs have ran them over and they are still standing!! The Auger I purchased was amazing . Took me 45 min to plant all 3 pks. I followed instructions to a T! So far amazing !

beautiful!

This propagated quite quickly despite being trampled by my two large dogs quite regularly! my only issue was that the box came with 20 large, live mosquitos, which was pretty scary.
