Our new, patent-pending, Multi-Purpose Ground Stake provides a quick and easy option to display your bench cards and other signage in rocky, hard soil. 

Compared to other sign holders, the Multi-Purpose Ground Stake™ is:

  • Easy to Install
  • Reduces Tripping Hazard
  • Light Weight
  • Low Profile (stores easily)
  • Cost Effective

This ground stake allows you to either display 7x5 bench cards with our CUSTOM 7"X5" FACEPLATE FOR MULTI-PURPOSE STAKE™, or slide on a sheet of corrugated plastic with a printed adhesive label.

Don't let the size fool you...

The stake is very durable and supports the sign face plate exceptionally well.

Prior Options Just Didn't Work...

Until now, there were three basic options when the ground was rocky and/or super hard, and none were ideal:


(1) Use a traditional stake sign holder and embed it in a concrete block or bucket.
(2) Use a traditional stake sign holder with a separate base.
(3) No Signage


(1) Expensive (labor and materials). Clunky; not a professional look. Creates a tripping hazard.
(2) The stake is typically wobbly. Expensive (have to purchase the stake AND the base). Creates a tripping hazard.
(3) Frustrating to customers. Requires staff to answer more questions



Hard Ground is no Match for our Multi-Purpose Stake™

The 'old way' of signing outdoor plants and products was clunky, expensive and caused tripping hazards.

Multi-Purpose Stake™ Installation Instructions

Our proprietary Multi-Purpose Stake (MPS) is quick to install, even in super tough ground and normally just requires a hammer. Be sure to have the 'Field Goal' posts closest to the plant when you get ready to hammer the MPS into the ground so the faceplate for your bench card can rest on the stake. Our custom faceplate works beautifully on top of the MPS.

  • Drill Pilot Hole, IF needed
    If you cannot drive the MPS into the ground with a hammer, use an impact or hammer drill and a concrete bit to drill a pilot hole slightly smaller than the diameter of the MPS.
  • Hammer the MPS straight into the ground.
    The stake extends slightly above the crossbar of the 'field goal posts' so you can hammer the stake without damaging the sign support.
  • Stop after the stabilizer 'horseshoe' is in the ground.
    The stabilizer bar will keep the stake from rotating as well as helping ensure all the signs are at the same height throughout your garden center. Be sure there are no pipes or wiring that would be damaged where you are installing your MPS.
  • Install each MPS in a minute or two
    Even if you have to drill a pilot hole, it only takes a minute or two to install each MPS.
  • Slide on our Custom Faceplate
    Slide the tabs on the back of our proprietary custom face plate over the 'uprights' of the 'field goal posts'.
  • The face plate rests on the top of the stake
    Be sure the stake is installed with the field goal posts to the back so the face plate will rest on the stake.
  • The More the Merrier!
    Using the MPS and custom face plate throughout your garden center will help you sell more plants while improving the customer's experience.
