Eradication of Japanese Knotweed in Sandbach
Japanese Knotweed was originally brought to the UK by the Victorians as an ornamental plant from Japan, however they were unaware of the damaging qualities Japanese Knotweed has! Japanese Knotweed has been known to grow through tarmac, and bring homes down to the rubble, and so is classed as high-risk. Therefore, eradication of Japanese Knotweed in Sandbach and throughout the UK is essential. What steps can you take to prevent Japanese Knotweed from coming into your garden? How can you identify Japanese Knotweed?
If you fear your neighbour may have Japanese Knotweed in their garden, we would recommend a site survey to take place initially. This will give us details of the Japanese Knotweed, e.g.
- Age of stands
- If the Knotweed has caused structural damage
Once we can assess the riskiness of the Japanese Knotweed, we will then be able to disclose in the report as to whether or not the Knotweed is likely to spread to your property. The land-owner has a legal obligation to ensure that any Japanese Knotweed does not spread outside of their boundary, and so therefore are liable to treat the Japanese Knotweed.
If your neighbour is refusing to take action against the Japanese Knotweed, you can take them to court for the potential devaluation of your property – we work in conjunction with solicitors who can give you free legal advice if this is your decision in proceeding.
