Invasive plant Japanese knotweed

Invasive plants are a green-fingered enthusiast's worst nightmare! There are 3 species of invasive plant commonly encountered in the UK:

  • Japanese knotweed
  • Giant hogweed
  • Himalayan balsam

These invasive weeds all bring with them a plethora of issues, but in our opinion, the one you need to be most concerned about is Japanese knotweed.

In this blog, we take a look at Japanese knotweed and how we can help eradicate any infestation on or near your property with our highly effective invasive plant removal services!


About Japanese knotweed

Japanese knotweed is an invasive plant that originates in Eastern Asia. Perhaps the most notorious non-native weed on these shores, it made its way over to Britain and began terrorising our gardens during the early nineteenth century, and it wasn't long before we realised it could cause physical damage to walls, houses and other structures.

To prevent Japanese knotweed from spreading, it's important that you get the help of a licensed Japanese knotweed removal company. Taylor Total Weed Control, our sister company, offers free surveys and comprehensive Japanese knotweed treatment plans to assess, remove and monitor the problem before it causes any significant damage to your property.

Removing other invasive weeds from your property 

Strictly speaking, a plant is only 'invasive' if it's not native to the country where it's growing. However, you might feel that every weed in your garden is an invasive nuisance!

Garden weeds pop up in all kinds of places we don't want them: on the driveway, between the patio slabs, in the drainpipe...the list goes on.

Did you know that, besides making your lawn look beautiful, we also offer a weed control service that will eradicate all manner of weeds, so they can't invade any other areas of your garden!

Some of the weeds we most commonly treat include:

  • Dandelions
  • Nettles
  • Buttercups
  • Bindweed
  • Ragwort
  • and many more!

We use herbicides that you can't buy commercially to kill your weeds safely and efficiently, with most weeds decomposing within 14 days of treatment.

And there you have it, our invasive weed removal services aimed to eradicate any and all invasive plants that you find on your property.
