Problems caused by Japanese knotweed

Japanese knotweed grows up to 10cm per day during the summer month, so it can cause a tremendous amount of problems for you and your home. Its bamboo-like stems are capable of growing through gaps in concrete and brickwork, leading to structural damage that can be incredibly expensive to fix. Knotweed also has a history of disrupting underground cables and blocking pipes.

Therefore, it is imperative to take action and contact a knotweed removal specialist as early as possible in order to minimise the risk of damage.

Can I remove Japanese knotweed myself?

We don’t recommend attempting to deal with a knotweed infestation yourself due to the extreme ease with which it can spread. One single rhizome can grow into a whole new plant – this is one of the main reasons why Japanese knotweed has become so widespread in Birmingham and other parts of the UK.

To avoid this, it is recommended that you get in touch with an experienced Japanese knotweed specialist who can ensure that the plant is dealt with carefully, leaving no rhizomes behind.
