About this book

Sand dunes are fragile habitats, easily damaged by the trampling of visitors. Dunes are also constantly changing, affected by the sea, wind and weather. Any management work requires understanding of dune systems, and the way they change over time. This handbook describes how dunes develop, and then details the techniques for constructing fences to trap sand and encourage dune accretion. Access is an important factor in dune management, and practical details are given on planning access provision, building paths and fences to direct visitor use to minimise damage. The planting of marram grass to stabilise dunes is also described, along with information on the management of dune grasslands, slacks and other associated habitats.

  • Excellent resource - need to get back in print
    By Cadogan 11 Dec 2019 Written for Spiralbound
    I used this especially to select, ID and propagate plants and to understand their position on the dune system to maximise their benefit.

    This has excellent detail and I am now down to photocopies of photocopies and want to buy at least 10 books if that helps printing them again.

    I can suggest a few improvements if the author is interested – especially around building sand traps.
