A: Hi Chris, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can best assist with your question. Thank you.
A: Yes, the spikes come with it, but you can buy more spikes, if needed.
A: Yes, the spikes come with it. However, depending on your type of soil, especially clay, decomposed granite, hardness, the spikes can break. Therefore, we purchased an additional package of spikes to replace those that broke so our project would not be delayed during installation.
A: I would say no but it depends on the look you're going for. I used the plain edging. A friend of mine used the scalloped edging. You may need some kind of gardening tool to level out the area where you're placing the edging. I think it's recommended that you do this first but I leveled out the soil as I went along and as needed. I'm not into making any project bigger than it has to be.
A: A mallet to pound it in and possibly a spade if you hit rocks.
A: You will need to purchase the edging kit, which is sold separately. We offer these anchoring spikes to supplement the edging kit if the landscape design requires extra anchoring.
A: You need the edging material and the stakes to create the edging border. If you are joining the edging pieces to extend them it's good to have an interconnect that I've seen sold separately and sometimes included with the packaging of edging. You'll need to check with the package you buy. They keep the ends butted up against each other better and I recommend you use them .
A: Without pulling one out of the ground and doing a measurement I'd give these estimates. The head size is at least 1/2 inch if not slightly bigger in Diameter. The spike itself is about 1/4 inch in diameter. If you use these spikes for what they were made to do you'll have plenty of clearance.
A: I'm not sure I understand your question but here goes. The head of the spike is about the size of a penny. I would say the spike's diameter is between 1/4 and 1/2 inch but they're designed to go with the edging. It you use the edging, the diameter for the spikes is not an issue. I'm not sure or clear on whether you could use these spikes for other purposes but good luck to you.
A: The spikes are made of plastic. The diameter of the head is about the size of a concrete nail head. Would not use for securing tents or canopies. The diameter of the head and the plastic strength would not handle the tork.
A: Hi Teresa, We suggest you use a rubber mallet to pound in the spikes. You could use a traditional hammer or mallet with a metal head, but the metal may bend or break the spikes if it hits a large rock or other solid surface below the ground. If available, a rubber mallet would be best.
A: I used a regular hammer, but we have very sandy soils. If you have rocky or hard soils, you may want to use a rubber mallet.
A: I used a regular hammer and had no problem! I was anchoring down turf.
A: Either should work just be gentle they are plastic
A: I have used a regular hammer. i would not pound them too hard though.
