Sorry for the dumb newbie question. How do you keep the PVC standing in leaping arches? Pictures would be helpful if you have them.

Last year I had two leaping arches that were each made from a 10 ft PVC pipe. For installation in the yard I pounded one foot of a two foot rebar into the yard at a slight angle. I hammered half of the second two foot rebar into the yard about 6 ft from the first. Then I inserted the first rebar into one end of the PVC. Then I applied pressure to bend (creating the arch shape) onto the second rebar. That's all there is to it.

Larger arches may require additional support. :P
