Long & Heavy Duty Staples That Stay Put!

12-inch, 8-gauge heavy duty galvanized landscape staples are twice as long and 35% thicker than standard staples.

These staples are perfect for anchoring in soft, loose soils where a 6-inch length is not long enough to get a good grip of the soil.

In soft soils, the top 5-6 inches of the soil could be extremely soft. But once these 12 inch landscape staples get down into the compacted soil, the staples will be securely anchored into the ground. It will be harder for landscape fabric to come loose.

These long landscape staples fully stay put once you put them in the ground and are great for stabilizing summer projects (birdbaths, shepherds hooks) and winter projects (inflatables, lighted wire sculptures).

What's the difference between round top and square top sod staples?

Square top 

Square top sod staple have a flat top.

Square top sod staples are typically used for securing landscape fabric, weed barrier fabric, dog fences & electric fences, controlling weed, securing synthetic turf, and holding sod.

Round top

Round top sod staples are rounded at the top.

Round top sod staples are typically used to hold down irrigation pipes and PVC pipes.

What gauge and size of landscape staples (sod staples) should I buy?


The lower the gauge number, the thicker and stronger the metal.

With compact soil, use landscape staples with a lower gauge, i.e. 8 gauge, so that the staples don't snap while hammering them into the ground.

With normal or looser soil, use landscape staples with a higher gauge, i.e. 11 gauge.

11-gauge staples are 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 will work.

For looser soils, use longer staples, such as 9" x 1" x 9" or 12" x 1" x 12" staples.

Will these staples rust?

The staples with standard coating will rust, but the staples with galvanized, rust-resistant coating will not.

However, rust can be good because it strengthens the staples' holding power and makes it more difficult to pull out.

When steel rusts, it forms a protective coating preventing further rusting.

Rust does not affect the strength of the wire in any way and is purely cosmetic.

These staples are usually installed once and never touched again, so rust is not a problem.

If you decide to reuse the staples, be sure to buy the galvanized, rust-resistant version of these staples.

Will these staples fit over a 1/2-inch PVC pipe?

The staples are 1" wide, which should be enough space to fit over the 1/2-inch PVC pipe.

For PVC pipes, we recommend round top staples, as the rounded top fits better over the pipe than a square top.

I only need a few pins. Why should I buy these over the 25 or 50-packs at local stores?

These pins are a fraction of the cost of those at local stores.

You can pin down vines, grasses, and small roots after planting, so they stay in place until the roots establish.

You don't have to worry about dropping or losing a pin because the cost per pin is so minimal.
