Grasses that are sod forming can be established by using springs. Sprigging is a vegetative form of planting that places stem sections (sprigs) in the planting area at specific intervals or in furrows. Common examples are bermudagrass and Zoysia. This publication provides information on sprigging practices and timing as well as after-sprigging care. Together, these topics will help prepare the homeowner for a successful sprigging event in their lawn.
