Japanese Knotweed Eradication in Halewood
With its heart shaped, deep green leaves and tall red stems, you would not think that Japanese Knotweed would be a problem across the UK, but it is. The weed can grow a colossal 20cm a day in the growing season, causing damage to drainage systems and even house foundations. This is a colossal amount when comparing it to the growth of other invasive weeds.
Japanese Knotweed’s invasive nature can undermine man-made structures like buildings and hard-standing walls. Any structures that are built on Japanese Knotweed infested land are at a substantial risk of structural damage due to the roots being able to grow a tremendous 3 metres deep.
It is not illegal to have it on your land, but it is illegal for it to spread onto someone else’s under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981. Therefore, we recommend that you call in the expert as soon as possible so that the epidemic can be controlled, and Japanese Knotweed eradication in Halewood can take place.
Every Japanese Knotweed is different due to either the location or purpose of the land that it is on, which is why we provide a variety of bespoke treatment methods to ensure you never have to worry about it again.
