Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Al the Gardner Sturdy Garden stakes
No more T-stakes for me! These garden stakes are great. Sturdy and easy to handle. They drive into my clay soil with ease. I wrapped wire around them and made hooks, the ribbed surface is perfect for securing wire. I'll buy more if we increase our tomato plot.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CausciousConsumer Works for Espalier Trees
About 1 year ago I completed a 340 foot line of espalier fruit trees using these stakes in an X Pattern supported by tension wire and posts. The trees fence in my back yard. About 12% were orders from Home Depot. Of the 340 stakes used, less than 2% had minor dents and two had defective seams in the plastic coating. I would like to see a heavier gauge steel tubing for my purposes.Since I used cut pieces at the end posts there was no wastage.When supported by 9 gauge tension wire this structure withstood 60 mph winds. 11 gauge wire snaps at the pressure and can result in damaged stakes. Bent stakes can by repaired by inserting 6 foot heavy duty stakes inside of them which makes them incredibly strong. If the vinyl wears off the stakes will rust rapidly. But only one has done that so far. Bottom line here is that my 7.5 foot high tree fence holds up against wind, rain and sun far better than the 6 foot high solid wood fences in our neighborhood.

These sturdy stakes have a thin steel tube covered by green plastic. The thin steel is fairly sturdy though with sufficient side load they will bend and kink.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by rebsaw Plastic coating splits, metal inside rusts.
These are basically throw-away items with a 5 year price; they last about 2 seasons.
