Japanese knotweed and other invasive plants have become a common sight in the Midlands since their introduction in the 19th century, colonising our gardens, parks, verges, countryside and waterways. Japanese knotweed is the most problematic, but other plants such as bamboo, horsetail, giant hogweed, Himalayan balsam and cotoneaster can also cause considerable problems.
Knotweed is found throughout the region in gardens as well as on development land. Reports are most common in cities such as Birmingham and Stoke-on-Trent – and in the triangle between Nottingham, Derby and Chesterfield.
Japanese knotweed can damage property, lead to expensive repairs and spread to neighbouring properties, creating complicated legal issues. It can even cause home values to plummet and make them difficult to sell. We have successfully helped hundreds of homeowners across the region overcome problems that Japanese knotweed has caused on their properties.
Bamboo also spreads, its rhizomes extending 30 feet or more, with new shoots appearing through lawns and patios. Where this occurs in an adjacent property it can result in neighbour disputes which can ultimately lead to legal action.
