Commercial Knotweed Removal Options

As mentioned above, we offer a choice of treatment programmes when it comes to commercial knotweed removal. These methods vary in terms of time and resources required; when you contact us, we will recommend the treatment plan that we feel is best suited to your circumstances and how soon you need the problem resolved.
  • Excavation– This method of Japanese knotweed removal is best used where time constraints are present and no other method is possible. Here, an excavator will remove the Japanese knotweed (along with the contaminated soil) to a registered landfill. This method of commercial knotweed removal will allow you to begin the remaining steps of your plan almost right away.
  • Bunding- The process of bunding involves relocating any contaminated soil to a different area of the site that is being treated. A bund is a shallow area of the soil, usually around half a metre deep. The purpose of this method is to move the knotweed infestation to an area of your commercial premises that is not in use so that longer-term herbicidal treatments can be carried out.
  • Cell Burial– This option involves relocating contaminated soil from one location on your commercial premises and burying it in an excavated pit in another location on site (which is lined with a root barrier membrane to prevent regrowth).
