Yeah I bought them, from Zoysia farms in Marland. I planted the front all by myself, came in rolls of sod that were pre-cut to 1'' x 1'' inch plugs. Doing it myself I had to cut the plugs, drill the holes and plant the plugs. It took me about a month to get the entire front yard done. I also could only plant for a hour at night after work. I had to make 2-3 orders since I planted little larger plugs closer together for faster coverage. After planting they go into shock and after about a week or two you start to notice new blades starting to grow. The first year was all about establishment, and getting good root system in place. I used an all purpose plant food from Miracle Grow in spray form every 2 weeks to promote root growth and in the fall I seeded with Rye grass to help prevent soil run off when it rained hard and to help prevent weeds from growing in. The follow summer it took until late summer, early fall to get solid coverage. Now I'm in my Second full growing season, 3rd since establishment in the front and its looking great! Now its to the point where i was able to pull plugs from the front and transplant to backyard.This time I purchased a 5-1 Pro Plugger help me out and save time. the Plugs are 2'' in diameter and I have the option to do 2'', or 4'' in depth. The plugger comes with two metal rings to adjust the size. In the tube it will fit 15-20 plugs, once its full just flip its outside down to empty. I also purchased a 2 ft long auger bit that attaches to my drill. Honestly the part that took the longest was to cut up the plugs from sod and pulling the plugs for the back. When I did the backyard I had a few friends come over and help out, and we got half the backyard done. The following two Saturdays I finished the backyard, and that was in early July. Now I'm almost two months along and the plugs are doing well, but i'm now consistently pulling weeds out. From Crabgrass, Nuts Edge and some sort of grassy weed. I'll post a picture of them ASAP. Can anyone help me treat these weeds. Whats the earliest i can spray for weeds without hurting the plugs?
