Extremely Heavy Duty! 20% Thicker Than Your Average Staple

 Sandbaggy 9 gauge staples are 20% thicker and contain 20-25% more metal than the standard 6-inch 11-gauge landscape staple.

The extra thickness makes them a heavy duty landscape staple, perfect for extremely hard soils, where standard staples will bend easily. The super sharp chisel point also makes for very easy installation for any kind of fabric in any type of soil.

They are availabe in a standard and rust resistant (galvanized) option.

No more bent staples!

Made with chisel point ends and a thick 9 gauge heavy duty steel, these staples are perfect for installing into hard rocky soil without bending. These square top landscape stakes are used for installing landscape fabrics or erosion control netting into the ground.

You can also use them to hold down drip irrigation tubing and pvc pipes, though we recommend round top landscape staples for that.

No more bent staples! Use Sandbaggy's 9-Gauge Staples. Benefits: 20% thicker than competitors' staples. No more staples bending during installation in hard soil. Faster installation: saves cost on labor.

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 standard option will rust, the galvanized option will not.

With normal use, the staples will definitely rust, as they are not galvanized.

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

Also, 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 use a pair of gloves when pulling up the staples to prevent your hands from getting dirty.

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.

As staples are 6" long, 5" of the staple should be in the ground.

This is enough to anchor the pipe so long as the soil isn't too loose.

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.
