One of our knotweed technicians will attend your property and assess the severity of your Japanese knotweed infestation.

If you’ve chosen a basic site visit and treatment plan, our technician may be able to advise you on the best course of action and discuss your quote during their initial visit.

We aim to have comprehensive survey reports prepared for you within 1 working day of our initial visit. We work discreetly and won’t share our findings with anyone but you.

Step 2: Choose a Japanese knotweed treatment plan

Our Japanese knotweed treatment planse can be broken down into two categories:
Herbicide Application Programs and Excavation and Removal Programs

Herbicide Application Programs

Herbicide application programs are more affordable than other methods of Japanese knotweed removal. We use specialist herbicides that can only be applied by fully-qualified technicians.

Option 1: Herbicide applications as and when required – Starts at £75+ VAT per application.

Option 2: 3-year treatment program and 2-year monitoring period - Starts at £800+ VAT
  • Add a 5-year guarantee - Starts at £1,495 +VAT
  • Add a 10-year guarantee - Starts at £1,995 +VAT

An insurance backed guarantee (IBG) can be added to any treatment plan with a guarantee, at an additional cost of £75.

Excavation and Removal Programs

These programs get rid of your Japanese knotweed quickly but usually cost more than our herbicide application programs.

Option 1: Excavation of Japanese knotweed and surrounding soil to be disposed of at a landfil site.*

Option 2: Excavation and relocation of Japanese knotweed and affected soil to another part of the site, forllowed by an application of our specialist herbicides.

Option 3: Burial of Japanese knotweed and contaminated soil in a hole dug on the site, enclosed in specialist weed proof membrane.

Our pricing for these services varies from site to site. As a guide, we charge roughly £850 +VAT per square metre.

*Note: Landfill space is running out so the government have levied a tax of approximately £85 per ton of Japanese knotweed waste on top of the cost of haulage and excavation.
