Retaining walls

I believe in one episode they used a type of adhesive tape that was in a roll. You pulled off the paper and rolled it between the courses of stone of a retaining/landscape wall. Can anyone tell me what product this was?

I haven't watched this show, but what about using Liquid Nail or Loctite adhesives made for this purpose?

I have looked into both of those, but the "tape" roll has me intrigued. I have a natural trickling spring on my property and have dug out around it to form a small pond. I would love to line the inside with stacked natural stone from the area and was curious about the tape.

Stone is either dry stacked or mortared in place, it is too irregular for tape to work, it is also doubtful that tape would work for water applications.

If you still want to try a tape, check 3M and loctite selection on Amazon.
