I would consider using nails like you would put down hardwood floors. If not, Power Grab is a good adhesive that we have used to hold blocks in place.
The first thing I would check once you remove the privacy fence is to see if the boards are warped and make sure that you would have enough wood to complete your project. If they are rough I would consider running the boards through a wood planer to make them smooth and a consistent thickness or you can spend some time sanding.
