Would it be at all possible to attach an X or V shape to the bottom of the legs of the arch to give it a bit of a base? It wouldn’t need to be much and would reduce the likelihood of it falling over

How about long horizontal support poles that go along the ground?

You certainly could put them into a bucket of cement then cover the bucket with sheets of moss. The buckets would be very heavy to carry.

You could try an experiment and see if expanding foam insulation in a bucket would give enough support. I use it for branch centerpieces.

Another idea would be to get 4 patio umbrella bases and insert the rods into them.

I guess what I’m proposing is a board with holes cut out that the poles could slide through. There would be a board on each side of the arch, perpendicular to the arch, and it would rest on the ground with the arch poles going through it and into the ground. That way there would be a bigger basefor the arch adding stability. If ou wanted, you could put a heavy pot of flowers or a stone pillar or something on the board on either side which would add even more stability.
