The Different Uses of Survey Stakes

The three most commonly used peg markers are stakes, flags and pins. These surveyor symbols are common to any construction project and ensures everything gets put in the right place. They are usually made of wood although some are made of metal or plastic and come in different sizes and coloured tops.

The coloured marking of a peg allows surveyors to write data on it and easily locate or indicate the area. These pegs have pointed ends which make them easy to install in the soil.
