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.
  • Bella Bluegrass 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.

Bella Bluegrass is a revolutionary type of bluegrass, being the world's first dwarf, vegetative bluegrass. It is a quick grower laterally, with minimal vertical growth, reaching only about 4" in height, resulting in 50%-80% less mowing. This unique characteristic sets a new standard for bluegrass aesthetics and performance, making it unlike any other bluegrass on the current market. Bella® Bluegrass is an ideal choice for those looking for a low-maintenance, visually appealing lawn. Bella Bluegrass Plugs have several features that make them an excellent choice for lawns. These features include:

  • Less mowing
  • Great color
  • Soft texture

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.

The auger was money well spent. It has been a week no plugs are dead...so... Id suggest you put a copy of the directions you gave me on your site. I might have bought your fertilizer had I read about it prior
