    Looking to glue outdoor carpet on deck

    Looking for commercial grade adhesive that can be used to apply indoor/outdoor carpet to 3/4 in. plywood. Similar to this picture.

    I installed pressure treated wood a few months ago and now I'm trying to find a suitable adhesive for carpet to finish my project. Any recommendations?

    You will be sorry! Why glue it?

    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    Your outdoor carpet won't last forever. If you glue it down you, or the next owner, will hate you for gluing it. Seek a better solution.
    I have no experience with outdoor carpet, but have suffered through some home repairs that the previous owner did without thinking of it's consequences when it needed doing again.

    The reason I chose glue is because all the installation articles I found online suggested to do so.

    But you guys think staples are more efficient and will outlast adhesives in outdoor elements?
