Yeah, walnut has natural critter resistance. (Not sure about ternites!)

Hate to see all that nice walnut cut up and left out in the dirt though!!!

Nice path sure beats concrete or pavers as far as creativity is concerned. Walnut has a natural toxicity which is why you usually see it growing in groups without any other species around it.

I’ve never seen anybody do this. It looks really nice. I don’t know at all how it will weather.
