    What is the best method to get new marking stakes in the frosty ground? I have thought about a drill? A pick?


    Also is it standard to keep the stakes 1' off the edge of the drive or is that too close?

    Any help sure would be appreciated


    Thanks
    Steve

    When I have to I use a portable drill w/ A 1'-1.5' drill bit. Works like a charm!
