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.

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.

It’s important to note that your plugs are living plants. After receiving the package, unpack the plug trays from the box right away.

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.

Plugs are taking off

Got the plugs in the ground a little over a month ago. Showing signs of spreading in an extremely sunny, hot area in our yard. All well so far. Buy the auger bit. Well worth it.

Healthy Plugs, High Success Rate, Fast Spreading

The plugs arrived green, moist, and with excellent root development.

Soil was already prepped, including analysis and amendment. I installed within two weeks of arrival.

Unfortunately, El Niño had other plans and I experienced significantly lower temperatures and significantly higher rainfall than usual. To put a fine point on it, average temperatures were 8°F lower and I received two years’ worth of rainfall in three months. The temps caused the plugs to go dormant.

Regardless, it’s been 3.5 months since install and I couldn’t be happier. I have a 97% success rate with the plugs and all successful plugs are green and spreading very quickly. Each plug has several rhizomes and stolons over 4” long. Definitely more rhizomes than stolons, but I consider this to be a good thing since I have heavy clay soil which I converted to silty loam over the course of two years.

These plugs have met each of my expectations and I can’t wait to see them finish filling in.

Tryin Plugs as a last resort

Plugs were delivered quickly and in good condition. We're trying plugs in a problematic part of our yard that doesn't get much sun throughout the day. The previous home owner put down Bermuda sod and it has been receding every year since we bought the house. We've tried regular seeding and hydro-seeding with no real luck. The seed would come up and then die even though we have a sprinkler system.

After putting the plugs in, we were running the sprinklers four times a day for a few minutes, but the plugs started turning yellow so we backed off on the watering. We haven't noticed the plugs starting to spread yet but they haven't died so we're hopeful that they will start showing movement soon but it is difficult to tell the difference between the Zoysia and the Bermuda.

Looks good!

My innovation grass plugs came in very healthy looking. I followed. The instructions took me a couple of days to plant them as I am an elderly person but so far they all look good very happy with them would definitely recommend the company which I have done already.

Innovation Plugs

We planted the plugs early, and even with the cooler spring temps, they continued to increase in size. All plugs arrived in great condition with no loss during shipping. We are now getting some warmer conditions with temps in the 70 and 80's. Shoots are spreading and hitting the surface. Excellent product and customer service.
