We are using these to block off an area for the kids to stay away from growing plants. The stakes are small and if a kid accidentally trips over one, they wont get hurt as they would with sturdier stakes. Once our plants are growing, we will use these as anchors for landscape cloth. There is no double they won't be able to do a great job for their intended use, but you have unlimited uses for this products. Package comes with 10 stakes.
