Removal of Japanese Knotweed in Hertfordshire
Japanese Knotweed can be the cause of extreme disruption when grown in proximity to a building. In one of the more severe cases of Japanese Knotweed in Hertfordshire, it was the cause of the extreme devaluation of a new build property. With the value of the house going from £305,000 to £50,000, once the weed had taken root under the house’s foundation. Japanese Knotweed does not need to be disturbed for it to spread, by simply ignoring the weed it can grow up to 4 inch’s a day. Although trying to cut the weed will cause engorgement of growth.
