Why you need to take action

Japanese knotweed is a highly invasive non-native plant that can grow very quickly – up to 10cm per day during the summer! It is capable of growing through small cracks in concrete and brickwork, which can result in structural damage; it has also been known to block pipes and even disrupt cables with its growth.

So if there is Japanese knotweed on your property, it’s important to take action quickly. But you shouldn’t attempt to remove the plant yourself.

Why can’t I do it myself?

Japanese knotweed is notoriously difficult to get rid of. You have to be extremely careful and extremely thorough – if even a single fragment of the rhizome root is left behind, this can grow into a whole new plant.

And if you make a mistake, you could end up helping Japanese knotweed to spread into the wild. This is punishable by a large fine or even prison time.
