Hard ground = no tombstones!

Hey guys,

I have a dilemma. My yard's dirt is hard, like rock hard, and I can't seem to sink those plastic tombstone sticks that come with the styrofoam tombstones. I have tried metal, but that doesn't work, because I can get it into the ground, but it rips through the styrofoam and isn't sturdy enough.

I have also tried gluing stuff to the back, but the ground is still too hard to hammer something in while it is glued to the tombstone.

Also, I live in California and Oct. is the rainy/windy month.

Any suggestions on how I can keep my graveyard afloat would be much appreciated.

Hi Jose.
If your ground is soft enough, you can hammer a couple lengths of rebar in, Glue a couple lengths of pvc pipe to the back of your tombstone and slip these over the rebar.
for extra security, drill corresponding holes in the rebar and pvc sleeves and secure with locking wire.
