How To Use A Grass Plug Tool

  • Thoroughly water area to be plugged.  Moist soil allows the plug tool to remove cores more easily.
  • Step down on the foot rests.
  • Push plug tool into the soil.
  • Slightly twist the plug tool left & right to loose soil.
  • Pull plug tool out of the ground. Soil "plug" will come up with the plug tool.
  • Remove the dirt from the plugger by using your foot to tap the side of the plugger or use the ejector on eject models  Dirt will fall out. (Afterward you can re-use dirt to pack grass plug in hole and prevent air pockets.
  • Place grass plug in hole made by the plugger.
  • Press soil around plug to ensure good root contact and no air pockets.
  • Repeat steps for each plug.

If you have a large area to plug, an alternative to the hand plug tool is a power auger. A power auger can be rented at any local tool rental outlet. In small areas a hand spade or even post hole diggers can be used to dig the small holes required to plant grass plugs. Just make sure you fill in the area with soil after installing the plugs in your hole.
