lawn - gravel driveway transition

i want to put down some 4x6 green treated landscape timbers to form a barrier between by gravel driveway and lawn to help keep the lawn gravel free and to make a nice clean line . i was planning on burying the 4x6 about 2 inches but dont think it will stay in place very well. anyone have a system to anchor the 4x6 that will keep it inplace better such as maybe a small footer every 8 feet or so where the timbers butt together . not sure about frost heave either ..

Drill it at regular intervals and use rebar as anchors through the ties and down into the ground.

instead bury them and only leve about 2 inches exposed ,that's all you need for a barrier . plus gives a cleaner look . no rebar needed just tamp dirt and plant grass on the out side frost heve no problem
