I used these with a 5/8" drill bit to secure landscape timbers, 2 high, into the ground. I alternated between these 1 foot length and 2 foot lengths, so that every other hole had a deeper footing. The result looks great, and these hold well. a 1/2" drill bit is not quite big enough to clear the side-ribbing on rebar, but the 5/8" was a little bigger than needed. I just didn't want any extra resistance. For the 2 foot rebar, I sharpened a 45 degree point on one end, just in case I hit a small to medium sized rock. It all worked just fine, and I recommend these for landscape projects!
After drilling 9/16 inch holes in my 8 ft. landscape timbers, I used my 1/2 inch X 1 ft. rebar to hold two landscape timbers one on top of the other. I then drove the rebar thru the holes into the ground. The landscape timbers are now in place and will keep the soil in the Iris flower bed in place.
