Planting sprigs or stolons - Knowledgebase Question

How do I plant bermuda from stolons (sprigs? is there a difference?) I planted Tifgreen from a box of stolons(?) about 25 years ago but I can't remember the procedure. My lawn has suffered from lack of water and I would like to bring back the bare spots quickly to help keep the weeds from taking over.

The terms sprigs, stolons or rhizomes are used interchangeably with bermuda grass. All you need to do is dig an area of healthy bermuda and then separate the plants so that each has both a stem and some roots. Prepare the planting area by digging the soil to loosen it up, then leveling it and sinking the springs into the soil about an inch and a half or two inches. Water well after planting. Once the roots become established, the sprigs will spread and cover the bare areas.
