    I’ve been curious about how all our scarecrow builders get them into the ground. Is your main post a large stake? Do you attach your post to a smaller stake? Do you just put it in a bucket of sand or rocks? Ive been looking at the big green fence corners at HD and possibly pounding that in the gound and then attaching my scarecrow’s post to that.

    My scarecrow is a on a metal stand that I built. I then stack haybales on the the legs to weight it down.

    Love the scarecrow. I had a similar one last year for a photo op area and the kids loved it. The center of mine was made from pvc, so I just used rebar for the support as it fit right inside the pvc.

    Mine has 2ft of 3/4" rebar sticking out of the bottom of the post. There is about another 2 ft pounded into a hole in the bottom of the post. We have a birdbath that sits in on a 15"x15" cement paver in the spot I set up our pumpkin king scarecrow every year. What I did was drilled a hole through the center of the paver and drove 3ft of pvc pipe through it into the ground beneath until the pipe was flush with the top of the paver. The rebar in the post just slips into the pipe in the ground and the paver keeps it from being able to sway or wallow out the hole. Holds the whole thing really well considering once assembled the entire thing weighs over 100lbs and is top heavy as hell. I don't have any pics of the anchoring setup. Need to get some this year. Pumpkin base sets over the hole/pipe in the ground and I just slip the post into the base and slip the rebar into the pipe. When We take everything down I just put the birdbath back on top of the hole/pipe till next year.
