Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros:Quick, easy to use, durable and a good price
Cons:Still had to bend over to plant the plugs :-)
The Bottom Line: Strong "buy" if you need to do ANY sod or grass plugging. Quick, easy to use and a durable tool.
My little "plug" on this sod/grass plugger. I have a Zoysia lawn and needed to fill in some bare spots. I wanted to pull the transplant plugs from good areas and plant in the bare areas.
Recommend this product?
At first I tried the square one-at-a-time plugger and it was HARD to work with. I had to beat out the plugs (may have something to do with our soil) and all that beating took its tole on the unit. I could see that my "little yard plugger project" was going to take a lot longer than I had anticipated.
In desperation I looked for some other type of lawn or grass plugger that might help and found the ProPlugger (www.proplugger.com). It was exactly what I was looking for.
It takes 12-15 plugs in less than a minute, then I just turned the plugger upside down and dumped them out on the ground near where I was going to plant them. I made holes in the bare spots about 3 inches apart (also quickly the plugger) and pressed the good plugs into the holes.
The plugger takes out 2 inch plugs and I think it captured most of the root system because they faired very well with "normal" watering. I also bought some compressed peat disks from the same place and I dropped them into the holes where I took the good plus from. When I watered, they hydrated and filled in the holes. Couldn't have been easier.
As a side note, my son-in-law used it on his lawn and found it MUCH easier than the square type plugger. Hope this helps.
