  • Choosing the correct remedial strategy (utilising case studies for practical reference)
  • Guarantees and Insurance

The ground containing living or chemically treated knotweed is contaminated by the plants rhizome. If this ground is disturbed the plant can grow and be spread. If the same ground is removed from site it is classed as a controlled waste under the Environmental Protection Act 1990.

Japanese knotweed can cause structural damage however this is relatively rare, it does however present a significant loss of amenity use to a property. Property owners and developers need to be aware and have a duty of care in the correct management, treatment and disposal of this contaminate.

For property owners it’s important that Japanese knotweed on their land is identified and controlled to ensure it doesn’t impact on neighbouring land. Conversely it’s important to identify any knotweed encroachment risk from neighbouring land/property as early as possible.

For construction companies if ground containing Japanese knotweed is planned for disturbance under development then in nearly all cases it will require instant eradication via way of excavation. Japanese Knotweed Ltd will work with our clients to devise the most effective and economic method of remediation utilising either on or off site disposal of knotweed waste.
