Another non-wire option is "Poly Stakes" from Home Depot.
Internet # 161225
Catalog # 100081721
Store In-Stock SKU # 739882
They are 9" long poly stakes used for holding lawn edgings or
pavers. Six in a package for $2.29 online. They look like
one could simply wrap the radial around one every 5 to 10' and
push into the ground by stepping on it.
