I currently have a flagstone walkway on a DG base.. Am planning on removing flagstone, leveling with sand base, replacing flagstone, and using small pebbles in between each stone. Pebble areas are varying in size.. Problem I have is the pebbles are loose and get kicked out. I need some kind of a clear flowing adhesive/sealer to keep them in place. Any suggestions?

Natural moss is a very good solution. Go into the local woods and collect some moss on exposed rocks. Briskly mix the moss with water and pour it over the pebbles and the result will be a new growth of moss that will bond the pebbles together and have a very appealing and natural appearance.

Thanks for the post. Sounds like a good idea.. but wouldn't that necessitate frequent watering to keep the moss from drying up??
