    I've decided to use wood stakes for this year (fiberglass would be nice but get stolen on the accounts I have) Is there anywhere I can find them?

    Try PVC

    Why not try 1/2" PVC pipe. Cheaper than wood, flexible in storms, cut to any length. Won't damage vehicles. And they actually stand back up if you run them over. Not like I've ever done that.:rolleyes:

    Wouldn't PVC get real brittle in the cold?

    Do you put some type of cap on top of the PVC pipes??? I would think they would fill up with water, freeze, and break off easy with water frozen inside??
