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.
  • Palmetto St. Augustine Grass 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.

Fast and fresh

The sod plugs arrived quickly and in excellent shape. I planted them a few days after they arrived and they all thrived!

Plugs that work well.

I've purchased Palmetto St. Augustine plugs a few times from sod solutions. The last purchase sat on my front porch for a day before I opened the package and planted them. I was concerned about the viability of the plugs, but, 2 weeks later they are growing very well.

Customer (Raleigh, NC)

Plug came on Thursday had ordered on Monday. Almost are the plugs had already started discolorationvery yellowish leaves. Plugs had very few leaves. Planted immediately. Knew it would be an uphill battle if plugs did not wilt. Did all the proper procedures to care for plugs. As of now I have 5 plugs with some green on them. I have used plugs before and was successful with them

Too small

Not happy with my sod plugs. Very tiny and not doing well, over month now watering every day and no new growth. I wish I would of had bought bigger ones I previously bought from Amazon.

Well Packed, Healthy Plugs - Growing Well

I had never ordered sod plugs before, so I was a little nervous about what condition they'd be in when they arrived. When I opened the box I was pleasantly surprised. Plugs had just a little browning, but were still moist, healthy, and vibrant. All the plugs are growing well in my "trial" patch, and I'm looking forward to seeing how they spread. Definitely worth following instructions - moisture crystals, fertilizer, and regular watering are important!
