Japanese knotweed in my garden!

Friday 11th March 2011

As a keen gardener myself, I have considerable sympathy with people that have bought a garden or found themselves with the monoculture that is Japanese knotweed. The tall and vigorous growth of Japanese knotweed simply swamps all other plants and destroys any hard surface laid onto it.

However it is not necessary to physically excavate the whole garden to a depth of 2-3m, nor do you just have to give up the idea of having a pleasant garden for the next 3-5 years, as herbicides are applied. The Knotweed Company has many cost effective ideas that may enable you to start enjoying your garden this summer, not next year and not in 2016 either!

We recently have carried out works to three rear gardens; we partially excavated two of these and capped off the remaining knotweed with specialist porous root barrier, supplied and spread clean top soil to the gardens and turfed them! The third garden was more bespoke, but we laid porous root barrier under the proposed decking and sealed it to the wooden uprights.

So you have Japanese knotweed in your garden, donít despair, call on the professionals!
