Path Edging

I want to put a path down the centre of my allotment and contain it within a wooden framework.
I am thinking of using long lengths of gravel boards, on either side of the path, that are 6" x 1" and screwing these onto 2ft 6" stakes that I will hammer into the ground. Is this a good way to go?
The stakes are 2" x 2" and I am thinking of cutting the ends to a 45 degree angle so as to ease them into the ground when I hammer them in. Is this good or would a shallower angle be better?

Doesn't really pay to make your own... it's plenty cheap enough at Loews/HomeDepot, and much better quality concrete than what you can prepare yourself. Only difficult part is to haul it home, but still way less laborious than preparing your own.

We laid a path down the centre of ours, rabbit fences make side paths a pain, and used old (London type) paving slabs which we got cheap from a reclamation place. Very heavy but movable with two doing the job, a sack trolley helps too. Wear strong gloves. The firm we used delivered them to the allotment free.
