Choose from 2, 4 or 6-inch bulb depth, all with the same tool—you have the ability to plant any bulb!

No more aching back and sore joints from bending over to dig your planting holes. Whether you're planting bulbs, your favorite annuals or planting ground cover like liriope, mondo grass, pachysandra, English Ivy or creeping thyme, you've found the right garden tool.

Want to build a new lawn from scratch using grass or turf plugs? Tackle major lawn repair areas by transplanting healthy lawn plugs from other parts of your lawn? The ProPlugger pulls over 500 plugs per hour, making even large jobs more manageable.

Frustrated with trying to control those pesky, hard-to-kill weeds that nothing seems to get rid of? The ProPlugger 5-in-1 is the tool for you, quickly plugging out the entire weed—stem, bulb, roots and all. Just step, twist and pull and you've got your weed!

The ProPlugger even makes a great soil sampler tool. In just moments, you can take soil sample from around your lawn and garden areas, ready to send off for testing and analysis. Pulling the plug is easy and so is emptying it. Just turn the ProPlugger upside down and the plugs will slide right out.

And what about tree fertilizing? Regular applications of tree fertilizer can be critical for the health of our landscape trees and the ProPlugger can help make it a breeze. Use it to quickly pull 4 inch or even 6 inch deep plugs from around the drip edge. Drop the recommended fertilized granules down the hole and press the plugs back into place. It's that easy—and your trees will thank you!

A year round landscaping tool that won't gather dust in the shed. 34.25 inch height. Made in the USA.

Pro Plugger


Love the pro-plugger. Bulbs sure. I also used in my raised beds to install quickly broccoli and other veg plants. It helps in our community garden to install annual flowers. Less down on the knees work. Plugs of the soil don't fall out until you want them by flipping it over.

ProPlugger 5-In-1 Lawn Tool and Garden Tool, Bulb Planter, Weeder, Sod Plugger


Purchased tool for this spring. I’ve used it for transplanting ground cover, bare grass spots, and flower bulbs for next spring. When I first read what it was capable of doing I had doubts which disappeared right away after using the plugger. To me, the best part is how it expelled the dirt plugs without working to do so. I'm in my mid 70s and I couldn't have asked for a better designed tool. I have a garden with 40 pepper, 100 tomato plants that I plant on 4’ does of black plastic with drip hose underneath plastic. The plugger makes it much easier and much quicker to be done with my chores. Love the plugger design.
