Ground staples are a simple and effective way of fixing electric dog fence wire to the ground in places where you prefer not to bury it. Ground staples can also be used to temporarily hold the wire in place as you begin your installation. These simple landscaping accessories are also perfect for securing the wire at the edges of a driveway or walkway.
Ground staples can serve a variety of purposes for your electric dog fence installation and are useful to have on hand for any installation project. When you begin your dog fence installation, you'll need to layout the wire along the ground following your design plan. Using a ground staple every few yards will keep your wire in place and help to ensure your wire doesn't move as you go. You can wrap the wire ends around the ground staple a few times to ensure you have enough slack to sucessfully splice the wire once you have it all laid out along the route. Ground staples are also very useful for wire installation in areas where the terrain makes it too difficult to dig and bury the wire. In heavily treed areas or areas of rocky soil, the wire can simply be laid along the ground surface and secured with a ground staples every few feet. Eventually the grass and underbrush will grow up and around the wire both concealing it and helping to keep it in place. When crossing a driveway or other pathway (whether you plan to run the wire over, under, or through) it is prudent to use a ground staple right at the place where the driveway (or walkway) meets the ground. This will keep the wire from being caught or dislodged by feet, or yard tools like weed whackers.
Ground staples should be installed every 4-5 ft. if using them to permanently secure the wire to the ground. Dog fence staples are not a recommended way of installing dog fence wire in heavy traffic areas or areas where grass mowing, edging, or weed whacking take place often. To avoid damaging your dog fence wire, instruct yard workers to hand edge the small area where the dog fence wire crosses a driveway or pathway.
