QUESTION: When using a bio-degradable fabric what do you do with the anchor pins after the fabric has degraded? ANSWER: It is ok to leave the anchor pins in the ground as they should be out of the way of lawn mowers, etc. as long as they don't get pushed up by frost heave. Remember anchor pins are installed flush with the soil level. They are flat on top which will not be harmful. They will eventually degrade.

Anchor pins - a gardening necessity
I can't recommend these highly enough. They're indispensable in my vegetable garden. You'll probably find quite a number of uses for this pins in your yard and garden. I've used anchor pins for many years in my vegetable garden - to anchor drip hosing as it snakes around my plants and to secure breathable landscape fabric over the planting rows. When putting up rabbit fencing, I use the pins to secure the bottom edge between the fence stakes to deter persistent intruders. These pins will eventually rust, but you can prolong their life with little effort. At the end of the season, remove the pins, rinse them thoroughly to get dirt off, lay them out in the sun to dry thoroughly, then store them in a dry place till next season.
Susan, I have a small vegetable garden and a very large flower
Anchor Pins worth the price
These pins are worth the money if you use landscape cloth. I used mine to hold down light weight weed barriers in my vegetable garden, a much better idea than all the make shift items I have used before. They can be easily removed and used again. I did however purchase a smaller package.
Better than Big Box
These are about an inch longer than you get at home improvement stores. Also you would get around 200 to 300 for this price at .... then about 1/2 the price. I am totally impressed.
