Stakes for planting and cultivation textile, coir mats, straw blankets, and other erosion control products.
Bio-friendly landscape stakes and pegs are an environmentally friendly way to secure erosion control products, such as logs, wattles, and mats, on erosion control and restoration projects. Designed to disintegrate over time into compost, these stakes offer a low-maintenance alternative to standard metal staples, pins and stakes. Biodegradable landscape stakes have been used for erosion control mats, sod, straw blankets, coir, and even light geotextiles.
Biodegradable stakes feature a resin made from a PHA. PHA is a plant-based material, designed to completely diminish into compost over time. Stakes come in multiple lengths to accommodate projects of various sizes and will secure products just as well as non-biodegradable stakes of the same size.
Standard Biodegradable Landscape Stakes
Biodegradable landscape stakes for lawns and erosion products are designed to secure erosion control products to even the hardest soils. Depending on the thickness of the product that needs to be fastened down, the project may require 4 inch or 6-inch stakes. Stakes will hold strong to the ground, and stay down, because of their alternating rib design and double hooks, similar to how a fishing hook holds. Depending on the environmental conditions and location of the stakes, these eco-friendly stakes will last from 16-18 months.
- 100% Degradable.
- No Removal Required After Installation.
- Equipped for Range of Locations and Fabrics.
- Alternating Ribbed Design for Increased Strength.
Benefits of Biodegradable Stakes:
- Penetrates hard soils.
- Pins down: planting and cultivation textile, Lightweight geotextiles, erosion mats and blankets.
- Holds strong and stays securely to the ground.
- Most Economical and Beneficial For Slope-Based Applications
- Holds Strong to the Ground
- Pins Down: Netting, Landscaping Projects, sod, Erosion Products
Use biodegradable stakes to :

Better for the environment
A TURFquick stake is 100% biodegradable. That means it breaks down completely to carbon dioxide, water, and hummus, just like compost (degradable stakes contain plastics and do not conform to ASTM D6400). Use them and forget about them – they’ll keep gripping for over 18 months before completely disappearing.

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY MADE WITH CORN STARCH
Better for the job
A 4″ (10cm) Biodegradable Stake has 45% more anchorage power than a 6″ metal staple thanks to a larger surface area and added barbs.
After the stakes, pegs, or staples have been inserted into the soil the biodegradable process will begin. Over time the plant-based plastic material will begin to break down into micro size bits of carbon and plastic particles. The carbon will break down the plastic particles leaving only water, carbon dioxide and the leftover bio-plant material the product is originally made from.
Extended exposure to heat, sunlight and chemicals may increase the biodegrading process. Ensuring that stakes and pegs are completely submerged in the ground is the best way to maintain the average breakdown time.

Natural micro-organisms in the ground cause the complete biodegradation of a TURFquick Biodegradable Stake. This rate depends on the moisture and temperature of the soil.
Landscape Stakes Layout
Below is an illustration of how landscape stakes and staples should generally be laid out to hold down our planting or cultivation textile, erosion control products or landscaping products. Note: when combining one blanket/net/mat with another, you should overlap the two by one foot.
