For forms that are only one or two boards high, supporting stakes should be spaced along the outside of the string beginning at the corners, at 3- to 4-foot intervals, depending on the height of the form, and at the intersection of abutting form boards. The deeper the concrete, the greater the pressure it will exert on the formwork, so don’t be afraid to use an extra stake or two to help ensure that forms won’t bulge or bow out of shape during the pour. Drive supporting stakes slightly below the height of the string so they won’t interfere with leveling or finishing the concrete surface.
