What gauge and size of landscape staples (sod staples) should I buy?
Posted by Sandbaggy Admin on
The lower the gauge, the thicker and stronger the metal. We offer 8 gauge, 9 gauge, and 11 gauge landscape staples.Ideal soil type
8 gauge: compacted soil
- With compact soil, use landscape staples with a lower gauge so that the staples don't snap while hammering them into the ground.
11 gauge: looser soil
- Suitable for most applications
Longer staples work better in looser soils. The added length ensures that the landscape staple will not move after installation.
For most soils, 6" x 1" x 6" staples (square top, round top) will work. For looser soils, use longer staples, such as 9" x 1" x 9" or 12" x 1" x 12" staples.
