Welcome to the Green Gardenista’s first Green Giveaway! I want to do my part to spread the joy of “going green” around, by giving you a great tool to do just that in your own yard!

Green Stakes are a 100% biodegradable alternative to metal sod staples and anchors, that solve all of our rusty “how do I recycle these” problems. This green innovation dissolves safely into the soil 8-24 months after installation, and can be used for a wide variety of garden tasks! I have used Green Stakes to anchor sod, mulch mats, and wildflower mats, but they have almost unlimited uses around the yard, and can be used with landscape fabric and even bird netting!

I will be giving away a box of 500 four inch Green Stakes next Thursday, October 23rd, to the winning name I pull at random from a hat. 


How To Win It Big: Enter your name, and what you want to use Green Stakes for in the comment section below, and stay tuned for the winning announcement to be made next Thursday! This particular contest is open to continental US residents only, due to overseas shipping costs. The stakes come in a box about the size of a standard shoe box..

Good Luck!

    Several hot and dry summers have left our yard looking spotty. We need to resod many areas in order to have a healthy lawn again. These would be great for the project. We also need to put down new hardware fabric in the garden area to keep out the weeds, so we need these to keep it in place – safe from leaf blowers and other things that disturb it. Thank you for the opportunity to participate in this giveaway!
