Step 1: Request a Survey

We aim to survey your property within 2 working days of your enquiry (depending on location). If you’re in the process of selling your property, it’s important that you identify the type of report and guarantee your lender requires prior to our visit.

Step 2: Choose a Japanese Knotweed Treatment Plan

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

Herbicide Application Plans

Herbicide application is more affordable than other methods of Japanese knotweed control. 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 ££1,595+ VAT
  • Add a 5-year guarantee - Starts at £2,595 +VAT
  • Add a 10-year guarantee - Starts at £2,995 +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 Plans

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

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

Option 2: Excavation and relocation of Japanese knotweed and affected soil to another part of the site, followed 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 (based on a minimum area of 10 – 15m2).

*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.
