Japanese knotweed stems

COVID-19 (coronavirus) remains the UK's public enemy number one, and while lockdown measures have started to relax in England, they're still in full effect here in Wales. The Welsh government are currently advising people to:

  • Stay at home
  • Go out for food, work and health reasons only
  • Work from home if possible
  • Stay 2 metres from other people
  • Wash your hands immediately when you get home

If you have a garden, it's probably getting a lot of use right now - after all, spring is in the air, and if you want to enjoy the longer days and get a bit of fresh air, your own back garden is the safest place to do so!

But what if, while you're soaking up the sunshine, you spot Japanese knotweed shoots emerging from your soil?


Can I do anything about Japanese knotweed during lockdown?

The good news is that contractors like Taylor Total Weed Control can still provide a full Japanese knotweed removal service while the coronavirus lockdown rules are in place.

Our specialists are able to conduct surveys, confirm the presence of Japanese knotweed, and carry out treatment / excavation as normal - all while following the government's two-metre social distancing guidelines.

Summer will be here shortly, and as we explained in our recent When Does Japanese Knotweed Grow? blog, that's when knotweed enters its most aggressive period of growth. So if you suspect there may be Japanese knotweed in your garden, it's important to take action ASAP - call Taylor Total Weed Control on 029 2039 7554 to arrange a free survey!
