Paul M. (New Haven, CT)

Last year I used plugs to fill in a part of the lawn that didn’t do well because of dogs urinating on that part of the lawn and was surprised to see the lawn grow in like a carpet.
So I decided to fill in some patchy areas in the backyard and made an order of some more Zoysia plugs. They came in nice condition like the other order and expect them to do just as well. I live in Connecticut.

Thank you, Paul M

I have ordered a few trays of Empire zoysia plugs and have been satisfied every time.

Got my Empire zoysia plugs nearly 3 weeks ago. They all look like they are taking. I planted the just a few inches apart instead of the 6 inches suggested. Didn't need to water them extra because we have had lots of rain. Very pleased and glad I did it during the hottest days.

Easy planting and it whet fast…

Still to early to tell but my hopes are there. When I see some growth I’ll most likely get and another order.

Came in great condition. The auger that you use is twice the size of the plugs, so you need to shove two into each hole the auger provides.
