Using Grass Plugs
Plugs can also be used in conjunction with grass seed when planting a large area. Widely spaced plugs can function as 'nursery' plants for the emerging seeds by providing some shelter from the elements.
The procedure is:
- start with a weed-free area
- plant plugs and maintain until established
- scratch out any remaining weeds
- carefully maintain until seeds are rooted
There are also other applications where plugs may be appropriate. Contact
Us for further information.
