    Default Using Log-roll ?

    Hi,
    being a bit of a DIY anorak, I'd like to know the best way to fix 22cm
    log-roll, to stakes, so it is more secure. I plan to use it to surround a pear treewithin a gravel bed.

    I was told I should not 'Blunt' the nail, ie. to stop them splitting the wood.
    Any thoughts ?

    And how many stakes per 180cm length ?

    Sorry no advice to give but I do keep reading this as 'Loo Roll"!

    Hope you find an answer soon.

    I made a border with this around the front of my plot I havent fixed mine and so far its stayed put. One piece along the front and one piece cut in half down each side.

    I know the theory wrt blunting nails, but I don't find it convincing; if it is going to split, it will probably split whether you do or you don't. Why not tie/nail the connecting stuff rather than the 'logs'?

    If you are nailing one piece of wood to aother first drill the wood with a drill that the nail will pass through and drill the post with a smaller drill and the wood will not split....jacob
