Alternative weed membrane pegs?

Hi,

I am currently laying some weed membrane and the pegs are bending too easily because of stones ect under the surface.

anybody know any good alternatives to using the two headed steel pegs you get with the membrane?

The only alternative i can find are the single plastic stakes but they wont be any use either!

Thanks in advance,

Rufus.

     I use the black plastic ones with the round heads from'' plastics by post'' although allow for a few casualties , heads breaking off and bending if they hit a root or stone . 

  • you could make your own using gavernised wire somthing like 3 mm cut to whaever lenth is best bend into a u shape and push or hammer home 

  • These are what I use, highly recommended.

    In ground like that I have used steel pegs made for heras panel supports. They are pretty much a tent peg shaped piece of steel that I am sure clever people could make!

    We bought some metal pins of pitchcare I think which can be hit in with a lump hammer and had no problems, not as cheap as the plastic ones but worked very well.

  • 100-150mm galvanised nails work well in stoney or clay ground.

    • Yes we use galvanised nails too and they work fine.
