If you had difficulty finding some of these supplies, here are a few links that will help you  out. As I’ve said before, I’m a fan of online shopping so I prefer to get what supplies I can for my DIY projects online.

Here’s the landscape adhesive I used based on its reviews. It worked well for me, but I made sure to clean off the pavers and wooden pallets stand very thoroughly which helped a lot, I think.

Look for wooden pallets at your local grocery store or large chain stores will throw them out back by the dumpsters many times. Just ask before you take them! In my experience many people are happy to give their old pallets over to someone who will make better use of them.
