The 5-IN-1 Planting Tool is ideal for many planting projects around the landscape including planting bulbs, even larger diameter bulbs like daffodils and tulips. It is also well suited for plugging lawn grasses* such as centipedegrass, zoysiagrass, bermudagrass and others (*not recommended for St Augustine grass). The tool quickly digs holes/plugs that are 2-1/8" in diameter (about the size of a racket ball or a billiard ball), one right after another and all from a comfortable standing position. Depth rings allow you to vary the depth of the plugs you can pull from 2" to 4" and even 6" deep.
The 5-IN-1 also makes a terrific planting tool for your favorite annuals or ground covers. The versatile ProPlugger is also a weeding tool that effectively plugs out and removes the entire weed - stem, bulb, roots and all. Even hard-to-kill weeds like dandelions, wild onions, thistles, curly dock, and other deep tap-root weeds are no match for the 5-IN-1. Just step, twist, and pull and that nasty weed is gone. Drop some organic material, like potting soil or your own composted soil, into the hole to help break up compacted or clay soil, add nutrients and help aerate your soil for optimal health.
Lay out borders for a nice, winding garden path with the ProPlugger. By working from a comfortable standing position, you can quickly lay out and dig planting holes for your border grasses like liriope with precision and perfect spacing.
The 5-IN-1 can also be used as a soil sampling tool for taking soil core samples, up to 6" deep, for your annual soil analysis.
Care for your trees with regular fertilization, without fear of over-fertilizing your lawn grass or other landscape plants. Use the 5-IN-1 as a drip-edge fertilizer tool, quickly plugging out fertilizing holes around the drip-edge area of your trees. Drop the recommended type and amount of fertilizer into the holes and press the plugs back into the holes, effectively fertilizing the tree's feeder root system without affecting existing lawn grass or other landscape plantings.
Whether you're planting bulbs or your favorite annuals or getting rid of those pesky weeds, the 5-IN-1 by ProPlugger is the tool for you. From planting a new lawn to repairing bare spots or damaged areas, the ProPlugger lets you do most of the work from a standing position, great for seniors and mild arthritis sufferers and anyone wanting to spend less time on our hands and knees working and more time enjoying our landscape.
