To prevent deer and smaller critters from tugging or crawling underneath of your fence, it is important that the bottom edge of your fence be staked firmly to the ground. These 12" kinked ground stakes are suitable for leafy or average soils, and feature a kinked design that will make any attempt to pull it out of the ground difficult. They are made of durable galvanized steel, and have a 1 inch J hook that will hold the bottom edge of your fence. When driven completely into the ground, these stakes will not protrude or pose a hazard to pets or people walking near the fence line. For best results, use 1 12" kinked ground stake every 5 feet. Pack of 250.
