The 24 in. Deep Drip Tree Watering Stake helps you water a tree directly at the root zone. The stake helps prevent loss of water to evaporation and runoff and is constructed from durable ABS plastic.

  • Waters trees at the root zone without losing water to evaporation or runoff
  • Helps tree roots follow deep water and grow down
  • Targeted watering and feeding helps bring sick and under-watered trees to health
  • 36 in. stake is great for average-sized trees and palms
  • ABS plastic construction is recyclable
  • UV-protected cap is engineered to be hammered into the ground with a sledgehammer (hammer not included)
  • Reposition as roots grow farther from the trunk to continue watering feeder roots
  • Place stakes 4 ft. around a tree trunk within the canopy of the tree (additional stakes not included)
  • Place fertilizer in the shaft for deep, effective nutrient absorption (fertilizer not included)
  • Oxygen flows into the stake to aerate deep roots
  • Helps prevent water runoff and hill erosion for placement on sloped terrain
  • Internal filter keeps out rocks and dirt
  • Compatible with a garden hose or automatic drip system (hose and drip system not included)
  • Slotted cap locks in drip line
  • Place in a hole during a new tree planting or hammer the stake into the ground for existing trees

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very useful purchase I was a bit skeptical at first, but the price was right to experiment. To my surprise, I found that it worked beautifully. (I purchased four units). The cap on the top is strong enough to take repeated hammer blows to get it inserted into really compacted earth. Further, the spike is also strong enough to take the hammer blows without cracking. Once in the soil, the weep-holes are sufficiently large to drain away water that drips in from the top. My old orange tree is now looking much healthier, despite the devastating California drought. Practice Tip for insertion into soil. Keep water flowing into it, and hammer periodically. The water softens the soil below, and the spike eventually enters the soil without too much resistance.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Won a bet with my husband and my tree won too! Just bought one of these stakes today for my sick tree to put fertilizer in and my husband was certain it would not go in our ground which is very rocky and hard. I am happy to report we hammered in with the slege hammer and viola...not only did the stake not break (husband thought that too) but we got all 36" into the ground!! We got our fertilize in with a good healthy drink and I tell tree is already thanking me...oh yea..and the husband owes me dinner from our bet. A win win day for Mom! :) I HIGHLY reccomend Deep Drip Stakes and can atest that they DO go in bad ground. November 5, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Work great I have been using the 14" stakes on aspen trees I planted 4 summers ago, and all three are thriving. I ran an extra line off my lawn sprinkler system combined with an Orbit 8-Port NPT Irrigation Manifold with Filter. Every time the lawn gets watered the aspen also get a drink. I just installed 3 of the 24" stakes around a new maple tree with similar results. If your soil is hard I suggest using a deep root waterer, like the Ross, to soften the soil first. Don't try to pound then into dried out clay soil. June 20, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great tree watering for the desert climate I lived in TX for 10 years and my father used these stakes religiously. I moved to AZ in 2000 and have used a number of stakes....I have 6 around my young trees, and they work perfect. I have ficus and live oak and eucalyptus trees and using these stakes with a drip line in the top keeps their roots from coming above ground. Just insert a landscape drip line in the top of the stake and your done! Great product. October 10, 2010
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hard to punch into the ground, but it works. It is better to applied when the tree is just planted. It is very hard to punch them into the ground for developed trees. January 22, 2014
