Sprigs are young rooted shoots pieces of stolon with leaves and roots attached. Lawns of subtropical grasses - Bermuda, carpet, St. Augustine and centipede - may be established by planting such shoots at distances of six to nine inches apart. This is called sprigging.

In preparation for sprigging, the soil is made ready as for sowing seed. It is then well watered, and the sprigs (each consisting of several joints and shoots) are planted with a dibber (pointed stick) and are firmed in place. After planting, the area is again well watered.
