Plugging is 1 of the simplest and most economical ways to establish a new lawn, convert a troubled lawn or repair a damaged lawn. Grass plugs have a complete root system and are easier to establish than sod. Moisture is probably the most important consideration immediately after planting. Adjust watering to climatic conditions. Without rainfall, grass plugs should be watered daily for the first 7 to 10 days. Soil and plug moisture must be maintained. Consult with your gardening expert about the desired amount of water. Root-in will occur in approximately 14-20 days during cool months and 7-14 days during warm months. Don’t be afraid to mow a new lawn. After the turf begins to grow, mow at recommended heights.
