Weeds growing through pavement cracks

Weeds in the garden are a pain, but weeds in public places can be downright dangerous. It's important for councils to stay on top of their weeds - not only is it unsightly when weeds start sprouting up through the cracks in the pavement, it's also a potential trip hazard.


how to stop weeds growing between paving slabs

When you've spent a lot of money having a stylish patio installed in your garden, the last thing you want is for it to be spoiled by weeds. Sadly, weeds have a way of appearing in the strangest of places & can often be found in the gaps between paving tiles. When a seed is deposited in the space between your tiles, the warm, wet conditions can cause the seeds to germinate. Once you've got weeds growing between your paving slabs, it can be quite difficult to get rid of them. We're going to talk you through a few different ways you can tackle the problem.


Japanese knotweed flowers

Last year, we received an enquiry from the Llanharan Miners Hall in Rhondda Cynon Taf. They were concerned because Japanese knotweed had spread onto their land from a neighbouring property - quite a common problem, unfortunately - and they wanted to make sure the plant didn't get out of control.

Taylor Total Weed Control carried out a survey of the affected site and recommended a treatment programme, which is now in progress.


what's the difference between and weed and a plant?

The line between 'good plants' and 'weeds' is often very blurred. Some plants may be considered weeds in some gardens, and welcome guests in others; it all depends on whose garden you're looking at. Of course, while there are no hard and fast rules, there are plants that are (more or less) universally considered 'pests' or 'problematic' - take Japanese knotweed for example. These tend to be the weeds we look out for when we do a survey of your garden! If you'd like to find out what makes a plant a weed, just keep reading.


If you love spending time in your garden, caring for your lawn, plants and wildlife, you'll know that one of the hardest and maybe most annoying jobs that you have to do is control your weeds. Some stay away once removed but some may keep coming back. 

If you find yourself constantly removing the same weeds that just keep coming back, then this blog is for you! Here, we take a look at why some weeds continue to grow after you've removed them and what you need to do to ensure they stay away, forever!
