Removal of Japanese Knotweed in Bath

Japanese Knotweed in Bath - Removal and EradicationOn the 20th July 2017, it was reported that Japanese Knotweed in Bath was one of the worst affected areas, for outbreaks of this invasive weed, across the south west region. This is due to the warm weather causing the rapid growth of the weed by around 10cm per day, with Bristol, Plymouth and Falmouth also affected. This rapid growth was stated to be “the scourge of British Homeowners” as the fear of the invasive weed and its destructive properties hinder sales by dropping house values and discouraging potential buyers.

Awareness of the invasive weed is calculated to be particularly high in areas such as in the South of England where 80% of the population is said to be aware, giving them the best possible chance to eradicate the weed in being able to identify it and call in professional help. This weed must only be handled by a Japanese Knotweed Expert, as ignorance of the weed and its effects can become the cause of it spreading to other areas. The majority of our projects involve the spraying of a translocating herbicide that is 300 times stronger than available to the public. This will give direct application to the internal and external part of the stem and leaves, which ensures that the weed is efficiently eradicated whilst also eradicating the stress and worry for yourself.

If you do have a problem with Japanese Knotweed in Bath, the most effective method of treatment would be to call our professional team on 0800 1337 444, where we can give all the help and advice needed.

Removal of Japanese Knotweed in Bristol

Japanese Knotweed in Bristol strikes fear into many homeowners. It has many destructive qualities which make it the weed that homeowners have nightmares about, but is it really a terrible thing to buy a house which has Japanese Knotweed on?

It is true that by having Japanese Knotweed on your land, you are more susceptible to have devaluation on your property. This is due to the strength and durability of the weed, considering it can grow through tarmac and concrete! Mortgage lenders have been known to refuse mortgages to people who have Japanese Knotweed on their land, as the devaluation aspect can be so significant (up to 50% in some severe cases!). So why do people continue to buy homes riddled with the invasive weed?Removal of Japanese Knotweed in Bristol

Japanese Knotweed is a nuisance for the seller, but not so the buyer – on average, the house can be reduced in value by £7,000.00, which therefore means the home will be cheaper to mortgage.

But I thought you can’t get a mortgage on a house which has Japanese Knotweed on?

Whilst this is the case, by having a site survey and management plan in place on the property, you have official documents to display that you have Japanese Knotweed on the land and that it is being treated. On average, Japanese Knotweed treatments cost around £2,000.00 (dependent on what is found in the survey) and this means that there is an overall reduction in price for the house by around £5,000.00!

We at Japanese Knotweed Expert can assist with our PCA qualified surveyor to conduct the survey. We can also provide all the necessary documentation for the site survey and management plan. From this we can then carry out the treatment to eradicate this invasive weed from your property.

If you are looking to buy a house with Japanese Knotweed in Bristol, get in touch on 0800 1337 444 to arrange for your survey and management plan!

Japanese Knotweed Removal in Cornwall

JJapanese Knotweed removal in Cornwallapanese Knotweed removal in Cornwall is on the rise, as many of our clients in Cornwall are not aware of how invasive Japanese Knotweed is when, in fact, it is listed in the top 100 most invasive plants in the world.

Japanese knotweed (Fallopia Japonica), is not native to Europe therefore the pests and diseases that control it in Japan are not in place here. This means that it is free to spread without any resistance.

The majority of Japanese Knotweed has been spread by riverbank erosion, and by mans’ activities, such as fly-tipping garden waste and moving contaminated soil. Mechanical flails and mowers will also spread the plant.

Japanese knotweed has become widespread in the area of Cornwall and many of our clients in Cornwall have contacted us because Japanese knotweed has spread onto their land. Many watercourses are choked with it and large areas or derelict land, waste land, roadside verges and hedges have become infested. It is a significant problem that many developers in Cornwall are facing.Japanese Knotweed Removal in Cornwall

We have been helping our clients in Cornwall to put in place a management plan for the eradication of Japanese knotweed on their land.

One of the methods we use for Japanese knotweed removal in Cornwall is removal and excavation which occurs when there is normally not enough time to treat it with a systemic herbicide. Usually, this is due to time constraints from builders or planned development. Under these circumstances, removal and excavation is the ideal solution. Once the site has been excavated, it can be issued with a certificate confirming the site to be clear of Japanese knotweed. The planned development of the site can then continue.
