To create the best possible foundation for your lawn, there are a number of different ways of planting. Sprig planting, also sometimes known as line planting, is a way of laying new turf that’s ideal for people who do not want to lay sod or who are in areas where the desired seeds are not available.
The word sprig refers to the grass stem and roots, which are also sometimes called the stolons or runners, so when planting sprigs, you are planting grass that is already growing. This means sprig planting is great for achieving a green lawn in a relatively short space of time.
Sprig planting is also great for creating a deep and solid root system and tends to be cheaper than sodding or plugging your lawn. Another benefit is the fact you can sprig plant into cultivated surfaces or poisoned surfaces, helping you create a lovely lawn even in tough areas.
To help your lawn establish itself after sprig planting, special care and attention to watering will be needed in the initial days and weeks. Fertilization can also speed up the rate at which your sprigs fill in and within the first two to three weeks, your turf will be ready for its first mowing.
