Any one have good recomendations for getting stakes in the ground when frozen? We tried a hammer and a piece of re-bar but that didn't work well. We could get about 4 inches and that wasn't enough. Any tips?
I have used a hammer and long screwdriver..man it sucks. You could build yourself a stake punch out of metal (has footbase to push down the punch into the ground) or, my vote a cordless, I would use 5/8in bits.
I have 1/2" wooden dowel with finish nails in them for my shells to move in the wind on. I use 1/2" rebar ground to a point with a 3 pound hammer and you might have to hit it 10 times but it will go down 4" to 6" and thats enough to hold it unless your into 25 or mile an hour winds and then they look fake in the wind. If you using a 16oz. hammer, you need to upsize the force on the rebar.
