What is the best way to hold down log slices used as a walkway?

Answered
I put down 2” log slices to be used as a walkway but they are not staying in place. They are on top of rock and now, they are slightly down with spray rubber adhesive. Some stuck while others didn’t. I used 6 cans. It looked great when i first did it and they were all uniform..But our four dogs had other plans for them. Thanks

    Try digging them deeper in. Use a trowel to custom fit in hole. Then put rocks/gravel to stabilize.

    • These are much too thin. If your little dog can move them, they will never stay in place. Also, they will rot soon and become dangerous. I would put them in a chipper and use for mulch. If you like the look, get something much thicker - 6" at least.

    rather than chipping and using for mulch, https://www.pinterest.com/saveoncraft/wood-slabs/ you can make neat stuff !

    push them in concrete and fill up with little stones so you won't see the concrete

    If you put a trim around them it might help a little.

    Dug a hole where you want your wood at and fill the hole with concrete and level it out flush and let dry. After it’s dry use a exterior glue of even a silicone that’s not water soluble and it will hold your wood in place once it dries! I also be sure to put a good exterior finish on your wood pieces front and back as well as the bark edges to protect them, maybe even a epoxy be another good choice for protecting your wood too? Otherwise those will rot fairly quickly I’m afraid! Best of luck

    Some of the rock needs to be cradled around the log slices to hold them in place. Either dig them down a little or add more rock.
