Which one is correct and natural: hammer a nail here or hammer a nail into here? For example:

We need to hammer a nail here so that we can hang a picture.

We need to hammer a nail into here so that we can hang a picture.

If neither is fine, would it more natural to say the following?

We need to hammer a nail into this spot so that we can hang a picture.

Neither is natural.

One doesn't hammer a nail into a spot. One hammers it into a wall or plank or similar at a particular point.

Thus, prefer: to hammer a nail into the wall at this point/spot.

If you were pointing to the spot, you would just say here.

  • Thanks for the answer! Could you clarify "here" or "into hear"? – Dmytro O'Hope May 22 at 10:15
  • Into here is NOT idiomatic. Possibly into the wall/plank here. Here equals at this point if you are pointing to the spot. – Ronald Sole May 22 at 11:43
