You may be asking yourself – What is a sprig and how can I use it to build a new landscape? One of the cheapest ways to build a lawn, sprigging is a great way to build a Florida lawn on a budget. A sprig is a stem of grass that has at least one node attached to it. There is no soil on a sprig and it has the potential to grow into a full grass plant. A standard sprig should have anywhere from two to four nodes on it. These sprigs will eventually start developing roots which grow into larger grass plants that cover your lawn. You can grow a variety of grasses through the sprigging process, including St. Augustinegrass, centipedegrass, zoysiagrass, and bermudagrass.
