How Many Plugs Should You Buy?

posted on March 31st, 2011 by

If you’re considering purchasing Zoysia plugs for your lawn, there are a few things you need to consider when placing your order and planting the plugs upon delivery.

Zoysia plugs require less maintenance, produce a heartier lawn and can be planted throughout the growing season.  That said it is important to consider the size of the area you’re interested in planting and how quickly you’d like the area to fill in.  Typically, we suggest planting one plug per square foot.  If you’d like to reduce the amount of time your Zoysia lawn takes to fill in, we recommend planting two plugs per square foot — one plug every six inches.

Need help figuring out square footage and how many plugs to buy for your space?  Try this easy to use Plug Calculator.  Simply divide your lawn into sections, enter the length and width of each and how far apart you’d like to plant your plugs – The calculator will quickly tell you how many plugs you’ll need.

    Hi Bill – Yes you can! Zoysia is very heat resistant. The key is watering. If you water briefly in both the morning and evening, the Zoysia should do great in the heat!

    Do I have to cut the zoysia into plugs? Can I just plant the whole piece of sod in vaious places in my yard and let it spread?

    Do I need to remove any othe sod (lawn) that I have planted now or can I just plant the zoysia plugs between what is already there?

    Frank – It is not necessary to clear space, but encouraged. 2-3 inches around where you are going to plant each plug will encourage the Zoysia to spread. Here is the complete instructions for planting Zoysia plugs.
