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 on Mondays–Wednesdays 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.

Hardy variety

I planted the Blue Citra plugs in the past and planted more this year. The plugs are pretty easy getting started and as they grow are a pretty hardy variety for South Texas heat.

Sod plugs

Purchased sod plugs and have planted. Hope they take hold before winter begins. Have been very satisfied with this product in the past.

CRISDEL (Modesto, CA)
Citrablue St. Augustine sod

This sod is so beautiful. Love the color! Came nicely packaged except about 6 had to be thrown out, my opinion, the damage was done when delivery person threw it over my fence instead of opening rolling gate. It’s growing good and starting to spread out. Ordering was fast. Great company to buy from. I recommend to anyone looking to buy sod!

Norman A. (Spring, TX)
Darkest and Thickest St. Augustine Ever

I can not wait to get a whole yard full of Citra Blue St Augustine. I can not imagine that weeds will ever have a chance. And I know that nobody on the street could have a nicer looking yard. Note: I live in Houston and wish I had a sod option available.
