    Centipede Sod Plugs: 

    For a low-maintenance warm-season option, consider Centipede Grass Plugs. They have a fine-bladed texture and slow vertical growth, resulting in less mowing and minimal fertilization requirements.

    If you desire a deep blue-green color and resistance to diseases, CitraBlue® St. Augustine Grass Plugs are a great option. With their minimal vertical growth, they demand less mowing and upkeep.

    Palmetto St. Augustine Sod Plugs:

    They exhibit superior shade, cold, frost, heat, and drought tolerance, with the added benefit of longer color retention. Palmetto St. Augustine Grass Plugs offer beautiful color and finer texture.

    Seville St. Augustine Sod Plugs: 

    For a rich, dark-green color and plush appearance, Seville St. Augustine Grass Plugs are an excellent choice. They require less mowing due to their excellent horizontal compact growth.

    Zoysia Sod Plugs: 

    They have good heat and drought tolerance and form a dense layer of fine, soft blades, resulting in an attractive lawn. Zoysia Grass Plugs provide a medium to fine-textured warm-season option.

    Planting SodPods: A Step-by-Step Guide

    Step 1: Soil Preparation 

    Begin by testing your soil for essential nutrients, aiming for a pH between 5.8 and 6.5. Apply fertilizer and soil amendments as recommended or opt for our NutriPod fertilizer, designed specifically for SodPods. If a soil test isn't feasible, use a complete lawn fertilizer following package directions.

    Step 2: Lawn Preparation 

    For established lawns, mow as low as possible. Ensure the soil is workable and adequately moist for planting.

    Step 3: Sod Plug Placement 

    Choose your starting point and use a shovel or auger to remove the grass, creating a hole for your chosen SodPods plug.

    Step 4: Planting 

    Place the Sod plug in the hole, filling around its edges with soil. Gently tamp it down with your heel or hand and water lightly.

    Pro Tips for Sod Plugs Success

    Spacing Matters:

    When planting sod plugs, ensure proper spacing between plugs. This encourages healthy growth and prevents overcrowding, allowing each plug to establish its root system effectively.

    Water Wisely:

    While SodPods are water-efficient, it's essential to provide adequate moisture during the initial weeks. Water consistently but avoid overwatering, as it can hinder root development.

    Post-Planting Care:

    Once your SodPods are in place, consider using a light fertilizer to support their growth. Opt for a balanced formula to provide the necessary nutrients without promoting excessive foliage.

    Regular Inspections:

    Keep an eye on your lawn's progress. If you notice any patches that need additional coverage, consider adding more SodPods to achieve uniformity.
