Contact Us  >Coronavirus (COVID-19): Business as usual - we can still provide all our services while observing social distancing rules.

how we're staying covid secure

Almost every workplace has had to make adjustments to continue trading during the COVID-19 pandemic, including us. As you know, we're still offering our wide range of Japanese knotweed and ground maintenance services so that you can keep your premises free of invasive weeds. In order to carry out our services safely, we've had to put a few new procedures in place. Here you can read all about them!

Testing Staff

All of the staff that we send out to work outside your homes are COVID-19 tested on a regular basis. This helps us to make sure they're not bringing the virus into our offices or to your doorstep. 

Observing Safety Guidelines

Much like the rest of the country, we constantly have one eye on the ever-changing government guidelines. This helps us to make sure that our practices and procedures are always up to date. We've made lots of different tweaks and changes to the way we work so that we can provide you with the safest possible services. All of our staff members are wearing masks when they're around people, sticking to social distancing guidelines, and keeping their hands, vans, and equipment clean.

Telephone/Email Arrangements

To limit our contact with you as much as possible, we're contacting a lot of our customers over the phone or via email to arrange their treatments. Our friendly team of staff is on hand to answer any questions you may have, rather than arranging face-to-face visits. 

Contact-Free Visits

One of the great things about Japanese knotweed treatments, grounds maintenance, and tree/shrub removal is that all of these services take place outside. This means we can attend your property and get the job done without even knocking on your door. Of course, we have missed catching up with you over a cup of tea, but we'll have plenty of time for that in the future when things go back to normal. For now, we'll do our bit to keep your garden looking its best while you put your feet up indoors.

Staff Separation

Another way that we're keeping you and our staff safe is by insisting that our staff travel to your homes in separate vehicles. Where this isn't possible, we've set up vans with safety screens, separating the front and back portions. Don't worry, we've kitted them up with walkie-talkies so they can still chat amongst each other on the longer journeys. Keeping our staff physically separated on journeys is just another way that we're implementing safe COVID-19 practices while we work.

So there you have it, a little insight into some of the different ways that we're working safely during lockdown. If you'd like us to treat Japanese knotweed, unwanted shrubs, or vegetation on your property, please get in touch!

Spinach plants in soil

We've all heard of people who talk to their plants because they believe it will help them to grow, but now - thanks to a group of scientists in the USA - the plants may be able to talk back.

Engineers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have created a system that uses spinach plants to detect explosive materials such as landmines. When these nanotechnology-enhanced plants notice a specific compound in the groundwater, the carbon nanotubes in the spinach leaves transmit a signal that is picked up by an infrared camera, which in turn sends an email alert to the scientists.


how to get rid of unwanted shrubs

If you're thinking about redesigning your garden, you might be wondering how you can strip your garden back and start a-fresh. Shrubs, like trees, become well established in your garden over time, their roots run deep into the ground and they can grow up to several metres in height and width. If you'd like to get rid of your unwanted shrubs, you're in the right place. We'll talk you through the removal process step by step so you can start working towards the garden of your dreams.


Tree stump

When a tree is cut down, a stump of wood is usually left behind. These unsightly stumps can be removed via a process called stump grinding, where specialist machinery is used to grind the wooden tree stump down to chippings.

But is this actually necessary? Granted, a bare tree stump can be unattractive, but are there are any reasons to remove a tree stump other than making the landscape more picturesque?


UK motorway road

We love plants, but as any gardener will tell you, they can be a nuisance when they grow in the wrong places.

It's especially crucial to keep roads clear of vegetation. All too often, weeds are allowed to flourish on roadsides until they're actually encroaching on the highway itself.


Electricity pylons and power lines

Plants can cause a lot of problems when they're left to grow unchecked. This is especially true of plants that lie close to power lines.


Even if you’re not an avid gardener, an overgrown garden can be a real eyesore for any proud homeowner.

Housing a condensed jungle in your backyard can not only be embarrassing, but it can also be a tragic waste of perfectly good space – a fact made all the more obvious when the sun is in full swing.

With the summer months now well underway, there’s no better time to revitalise your outdoor space than right now.

Make the most of your garden without even lifting a finger with comprehensive garden clearance, courtesy of Taylor Weed Control.

Why choose TWC garden clearance services?

During the summertime, a stunning outdoor space can make for the perfect venue to soak up the summer sun, play with the kids or socialise with friends and family.

However, gardens require a lot of maintenance – particularly in the summer months when grass growth is at its peak – and keeping on top of your outdoor chores can seem like a never-ending task.

Luckily, there are ways around these backyard burdens and garden clearance from Taylor Weed Control is just the trick!


Who needs garden clearance services?

Whether you're short on time, short on energy or short on patience, professional garden clearance services can be an efficient way to completely rejuvenate your garden in one fell swoop.

Meanwhile, enlisting a professional to handle your garden clearance services can also be extremely handy for the elderly and those who aren’t physically capable of clearing their garden themselves.

Simply make the call, sit back and watch your outdoor space restore and revive before your very eyes.


Garden clearance for house sales

Garden clearance is also a great way to help spruce up your external property ahead of a potential house sale.

A clear and tidy garden can be extremely attractive to a potential buyer, while it can also accentuate the size of your outdoor space, providing them with a fuller picture of the available space.

Properties that have been inherited or purchased from someone in poor health are commonly overgrown due to the inhabitant being unable to tend to the growing garden’s demands.

Meanwhile, houses that have been left for prolonged periods of time are also naturally going to be susceptible to grassy overgrowth and thriving weeds.

A good quality garden clearance service will be able to solve these growth issues in no time at all, leaving you with an outdoor space that not only looks great to you but looks even better to potential buyers.

Just like residential and commercial properties, public property also requires care and maintenance to keep plant growth acceptable and prevent potential hazards to Joe Public walking the street.

This process is known as vegetation management. In short, vegetation management helps keep trees, shrubs and plants under control and rogue undergrowth at bay, keeping the world moving uninterrupted and uninhibited.

If you are responsible for public land or property that is accessible to the general public, you are also responsible for taking care of the greenery. A good vegetation management plan can help you do just that – and we know just the guys to do it for you!


vegetation management


What does a vegetation management plan include?

Vegetation management covers everything you would expect from a public green maintenance programme.

This typically includes typical maintenance tasks – like tree pruning, brush removal and weed control – as well as large-scale jobs, such as felling hazardous trees and implementation of protective measures near power lines.

Strategically planned to cause as little disruption as possible – before, during and after – vegetation management will keep unruly undergrowth from causing issues to the general public (such as blocking footpaths, etc.).

Meanwhile, a good vegetation management plan, carried out with care and attention, will provide efficient removal of unwanted overgrown greenery, while also taking care not to impede on wildlife or negatively affect the environment.
