This extra thickness is perfect for extremely hard soils, where standard staples will bend easily. The super sharp chisel point also makes for very easy installation.

      How many landscape staples do I need for my landscape fabric project?

      How many landscape staples do I need for my project? We recommend installing a landscape staple at least every 3 feet to hold the fabric down.

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

      1. 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.

      2. 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?

      1. Gauge

      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.

      2. Size

      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 short answer is yes.

      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.

      Why not sell a galvanized version of these staples?

      Galvanized staples are considerably more expensive and unnecessary unless the staples need to be reused and the original appearance of the staple must be preserved.

      For one-time use applications, such as installing landscape fabric or drip tubing, non-galvanized staples such as these will do the job just as well.

      Non-galvanized staples can even be reused when rusted; just make sure to wear a pair of gloves when handling them to keep your hands clean.

      We do offer one version of galvanized staples: 1-inch width, 6-inch length, round top.

      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.

      1. Depending on how hard your soil is, separate each sod staple between 1-5 ft. For very soft soil, separate each staple by 1 ft. For very hard soil, separate each staple by 5 ft.
      2. For very soft soil, we recommend longer sod staples, such as 9-inch sod staples.
      3. For very hard soil, we recommend thicker sod staples, such as 6" x 2" x 6" 9-gauge staples
      Tools required for landscape staples installation:
      • Hammer
      • Gloves

      Extra thick 9-gauge staples require two tools for installation: rubber mallet or hammer, gloves
