The South Wales region has long been regarded as a hotspot for Japanese knotweed with some mortgage providers reluctant to lend to properties affected by the plant.
One particular client was attempting to sell a property to fund care for a family member but had been told the property was worth almost half its asking price because of Japanese knotweed in the garden and adjoining properties.
Environet used a combination of Japanese knotweed removal methods. We used excavation, root barrier and herbicide treatments which allowed us to isolate the garden and protect it from future encroachment. The property has now been sold for its true market value, thanks to Environet’s expertise.
