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.

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.

CitraBlue plugs

Received in good condition & healthy, Plugs planted & so far so good. Plugs recieved last year (also CitrBlue) seem to be healthy & coming out of winter "sleep" fairly well - limited spreading so far though (central GA). With these re-enforcements monitoring closely for spreading this year.

So far so good. Delivered in great shape

Charles N. (The Villages, FL)
As advertised

It was shipped on time and very healthy.

Nora F. (Saint Augustine, FL)
Good Product with Fast Delivery

I have had CitraBlue in my landscape and it remains virtually impossible to buy locally. While I hesitated to order sod online thinking it might arrive completely dried out, the 2 - 32 packs I ordered were still damp and looked very healthy. After a week, they seem to be doing very well. I also ordered 2 packs of the smaller plugs, which were more difficult to work with, but they are also doing well at this juncture. Deliveries of both types of sod arrived quickly an in good shape for planting.

Love it! Won't go back to the normal St. Augustine.

Being a lawn lover and a Northerner, I have only known northern type grasses and when I moved to Texas, I wasn't too impressed with the usual St. Augustine. I have become a huge fan of the common Bermuda as it's easy to care for, chokes out weeds, minimal disease and you can walk on it barefoot. I am catering to the Bermuda and encouraging it to take over most of my 3 acre property except for an isolated section as I wanted to try a different ground cover and found the Citrus Blue. I have noticed the usual St. Augustine comes with weeds, especially the crabgrass and Citrus Blue advertised it is more disease/weed resistant. I bought the smaller plugs last year on sale. Planted them in September/October in the SE Texas soil and was amazed they lived and thriving with minimal or no weeds and have been buying plugs all summer long and just ordered my last batch of plugs to finish the section. This section is the middle of a circular driveway and the color and grass blades is very noticeable, vibrant and healthy, even in this heat with lack of rain. But again, I'm a lawn lover. I love it's uniqueness, how rich it looks and isn't high maintenance. I would definitely recommend Citrus Blue to anyone. One happy customer.
