In order to benefit fully from the first-class properties of a LINUS® stake, it is necessary to comply with certain standards, which we have developed in extensive tests:
- The distances between the LINUS® stakes should not exceed 4-5 metres. We recommend a shorter distance for wind-prone areas.
- The insertion depth of the LINUS® stakes should be at least 70 cm.
- When placing the LINUS® end stake, make sure that it is set at an angle of 45°-60° and 20 cm deeper than the LINUS® stakes in the row.
- We also recommend using a 2-fold bracing of the end stake, which gives you even more stability for the vineyard row. When using stainless steel wires or plastic wires, use the LINUS® protective caps.
- LINUS® stakes can be easily pressed hydraulically into the ground. In stony soils a hole should be predrilled.
- By the way: LINUS® stakes can also be set easily in a short time with a hand pile driver.
If you have any further questions about the use of your LINUS® stake, please contact us. We’d be happy to help!
