Need a garden support/stake for your fruit trees, plants, or garden flowers? An inexpensive alternative from trellis and garden stakes is using PVC pipes! They are extremely inexpensive, averaging out to be $2-3 each depending on the pipe you go with.
I purchased my PVC pipes from Lowes, (3/4 inch x 10 foot) for $2.85 each and an employee will be happy to cut the pipes in your desired size for free! I usually just cut the pipes in half to get (2) - 5 foot pieces.
