I ordered this to fill in some worn areas on my St Augustine lawn. It is growing very rapidly (spreading out, not growing up). After seeing the vitality of the first order, I re-ordered and am happy with the second order also.
The product arrived well packed, in good shape. The plugs were in very good condition - there were a "weak" plug or two per tray, but these took hold and are growing also.
This is the second time I have ordered zoysia grass plugs from this company. The first time was for the sunny parts of my front yard a couple of years ago. I planted them in my fescue grass about a foot apart and the zoysia completely took over within two years. Weeds and other grasses only take root along the edge of the road and are easily removed.
My second order was for my partially shaded backyard. The plugs arrived promptly and I planted them right away. Most of the plant were a good size, but about 25 plants were too small to get out of the tray intact. I contacted the company and they sent me another tray of plugs. I love it when a company stands behind their product! Since it has only been one week, I can’t report on the growth. The plants look very healthy though, and I expect they will do as well as my previous order. I will definitely order from Sod Solutions again.
Our plugs arrived and looked very nice when the package was opened..Only had 5 with no plants in the holders... Planted the next day and have kept them water when no rain.. They all seem to be doing very good.. Time will tell.
Time will tell if the plugs will grow and expand to cover the ground. I really liked that each plug arrived in its own growing starter pot, rather than having to use a knife to separate each plug. My only complaint was that about 4-6 plugs from each tray either had a tiny single grass blade or nothing. Other than that I was happy with purchase.
Product was as good as advertised - already growing and looking great!
