Japanese Knotweed Removal in Cardiff

South Wales – and especially Cardiff – is one of the UK’s biggest Japanese knotweed hotspots. (Perhaps it’s the wet weather.) This invasive plant is particularly common alongside railways and rivers, but it has been spotted in all sorts of different places throughout the Welsh capital.

If you’ve found Japanese knotweed growing on or near your property, Taylor Total Weed Control can help. We are based right here in Cardiff, and as invasive weed experts, we specialise in Japanese knotweed control. We are registered with the Property Care Association (PCA) and offer a variety of treatment plans to suit your requirements.

Japanese Knotweed: How We Can Help

The first thing we’ll need to do is visit your property and carry out a survey to assess the extent of your Japanese knotweed infestation. We offer a basic survey for free, along with a no-obligation treatment quote.

Once we’ve completed our survey, we will recommend a suitable treatment programme to get your knotweed problem under control. In most cases, we recommend several applications of herbicide, followed by a period of monitoring in case of re-growth. If necessary, we can provide an insurance-backed guarantee for added reassurance.

We also offer a Japanese knotweed removal service. This involves digging up the plant and either relocating it, disposing of it at an approved landfill site, or burying it in a weed-proof membrane. This option is faster but considerably more expensive, so we tend not to recommend excavation and removal except in special cases (for example, if the site needs to be cleared ASAP so that construction can begin).

How Much Will It Cost?

Our price plans are very competitive – many of our customers have remarked that the quotations they received from us were far lower than expected.

The quote you receive from Taylor Total Weed Control will depend on the extent of your Japanese knotweed infestation. To give you a rough idea of what we charge for our services, here’s an approximate price list (please note that these prices do not include VAT)
  • £75 for a single application of herbicide

  • £800 for a comprehensive 3-year treatment programme, followed by 2 years of monitoring
