What should I do if there’s Japanese knotweed on my property?

If you believe there’s Japanese knotweed on your property, follow these steps:
  • Make sure it’s actually Japanese knotweed. There are quite a few plants that resemble Japanese knotweed, so look closely at the plant to make sure you’re dealing with the real thing and not one of its doppelgangers.
  • Contact Taylor Total Weed Control. We do not recommend attempting to destroy the plant yourself (see DIY Japanese knotweed removal) as it is very difficult for untrained individuals to remove all traces of the plant and its rhizome root system. You may even end up breaking the lawn by accidentally spreading the plant into the wild.
  • Arrange a Japanese knotweed survey. This initial survey gives us a chance to confirm the presence of Fallopia japonica on your property and recommend the best course of action based on your requirements and the extent of your infestation.
If you choose Taylor Total Weed Control to manage your Japanese knotweed problem, we can either carry out a programme of herbicide applications or excavate the knotweed and dispose of it in accordance with the Property Care Association’s code of practice.

If you live in Herefordshire and you’re concerned about Japanese knotweed on a property that adjoins yours, Taylor Total Weed Control can help to put your mind at ease.

While your neighbour is not legally required to eradicate the knotweed, they may be liable if they allow the plant to encroach on your property.

To make sure you’re covered, we can:
  • Survey your land to confirm that there is not currently any Japanese knotweed present on your side of the property border
  • Provide your neighbour with evidence that there is Japanese knotweed on their property
  • Monitor the situation and record whether or not your neighbour is taking action to prevent the knotweed spreading (and how effective such efforts prove)
These precautions will help your case in the event that Japanese knotweed does spread onto your property. With our help, it will be easier for you to prove that your neighbour is responsible for this nuisance.
