TCV’s Handbooks are the definitive ‘how to’ guides to managing the countryside and green spaces. Over 1,000 pages in ten handbooks of fantastic advice and instruction, illustrated and clearly laid out in a step-by-step format.
Learn all the techniques to build a dry stone wall, lay a hedge, construct a boardwalk, create a new woodland, look after your tools, build a fence and so and so on.
They are now available in website form for a very modest annual subscription (less than the cost of a single handbook).
The original titles are:
- Sand Dunes
- Tree planting and Aftercare
- Waterways and Wetlands
- Dry Stone Walling
- The Urban Handbook
Each handbook includes a comprehensive introduction to the subject as well as chapters on design, management, maintenance, safety, equipment, planning, planting… and so on, depending on the subject at hand. The handbooks were first published in the 1970s, 1980s and early 1990s and have been updated more recently.
