Our Grass Plugs are a special order item. Due to this, we package our plugs with special attention and have now included a free shipping option to make it more convenient. Hancock Seed Company thanks you for your business!
SPECIAL NOTICE: Due to the heat of summer, shipping plugs to areas with more than a two day transit can result in damage from the heat. This has been a recurring problem for us throughout the years. We ship our plugs at the highest quality, therefore, we can not replace plugs that are damaged due to this.
Please call our office if you have any questions on the transit time for your area.
****Lawn plugs ship every Monday if order is placed by noon previous Friday****
Centipede Lawn Plugs - 36 ~ 3x3 Lawn Plugs - Centipede grass is a very popular option in most hot, southern lawn areas. Centipede grass delivers an attractive, dense lawn with a beautiful medium to dark green color. If you prefer looking at your yard more than working in it, Centipede is a wonderful choice for you due to its very low maintenance requirements. With a slow growth rate, Centipede requires minimal mowing. In addition, its complex root system means Centipede is relatively drought resistant and is aggressive enough to compete with and overtake weeds.
