Idea for installing marker stakes in frozen ground

I had to put some stakes in frozen ground the other day and came up with this idea. Maybe some of you use this already but I just used my cordless drill and a long 1/4" bit to make some pilot holes in the ground first and then pushed the stakes (1/2" fiberglass) in. Kind of hard on the bit though!

Hope this helps someone,

I do the same thing, but I use a 3/8 Masonry bit.

I figure if you can drill thru block, brick and stone .... it should handle frozen ground!:D :waving:

Just take a 3/8" steel rod and slip a small pipe over it with a stop welded to the end. Drive the 3/8 rod just like a post driver and slip the 3/8 dia. marker in hole. Or order one from Jthomas for 19.00. That 3/8 ths rod will bust right through frost line.
