I used five foot pieces of rebar - I’m able to get them pre cut at a local vineyard supply shop.

Economical? Perhaps not in that volume. The shop also offers what they call a pencil rod which is thinner and cheaper. I didn’t use them as they were sold out in the five foot length but they are back in stock now.

Being a former concrete contractor, I used 3/8 rebar. You can get about 800 pieces 6'6" in length Per ton. Cost is approximate $1.50 per piece. Last forever.
