Japanese knotweed is a potentially damaging invasive species that can affect your property in a number of ways. Despite it not being a native species, it’s a relatively well known plant in the UK, for all the wrong reasons.

Japanese knotweed is infamous for its rapid growing speeds, with the ability to grow over 10cm a day in the summer months. This is just one reason that highlights why, when it comes to Japanese knotweed, it’s essential to act as soon as possible.

If you think you might have knotweed on your property, it’s in your best interest to get a survey as soon as possible.


Why Get a Japanese Knotweed Survey?

As mentioned above, Japanese knotweed is a super spreader, growing up to 10 centimetres a day, but that’s not the only reason it’s important to remove it as quickly as possible.

Japanese knotweed disrupts and unbalances the ecosystems of the UK; it takes over the natural habitats of a variety of species, making it uninhabitable for them. It also has the ability to overwhelm and smother native plants, forcing them out and making it difficult for them to grow.

Japanese knotweed can also cause structural damage if allowed to grow too near to a property. It can grow between paving tiles and disrupt them, strangle and damage pipes, even forcing its way between bricks and making walls unstable.
