No matter how you look at it, Japanese knotweed is a weed you don't want to find growing on your property. It is damaging to other plants, wildlife, can cause property damage, and can even reduce your property value by 10%.

If you’ve found knotweed on your lawn, you might be tempted to try and treat the knotweed yourself. A quick google search will tell you how difficult knotweed is to excavate – the roots can grow up to 3 metres deep below ground and up to 7 metres across.

For this reason, typical knotweed treatment processes involve the application of a strong herbicide. If you’re hoping to save a few quid on knotweed removal, you may be wondering ‘can I use weed killer on Japanese knotweed?’ 

Technically, yes. Glyphosate based herbicides have been proven to work against Japanese knotweed. However, whether you can and whether you should treat Japanese knotweed at home with weed killed is a separate matter entirely.

Japanese knotweed removal is a very complex process, which requires experience and training to do successfully. Knotweed must be treated with specific herbicide combinations at several stages of its growth, and monitored for years after treatment.

For all of these reasons, it is strongly recommended that you do not use weed killer on Japanese knotweed, and instead invest in professional knotweed removal services.

Professional knotweed removal gives you the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your knotweed will be dealt with properly first time around.
