Problems with Knotweed in South England?

Although the South of England is made up of a mix of areas of outstanding natural beauty and national parks Japanese knotweed has infested each of these since its introduction in the 1820's. With the sprawl of London, came the spread of knotweed as people looked to cultivate a plant which grew so easily and required little to no encouragement. Knotweed can be found in a mix of locations from residential gardens to public car parks, the railway embankments crossing the counties and even managing to traverse the water to the Isle of Wight. Knotweed is often reported in the build up areas of Guildford, Reading, Oxford, Swindon, Winchester, Chichester, Southampton, Portsmouth, Salisbury and Bournemouth.

When Japanese knotweed is left to its own devices, it spread like a disease. It can worm its way into the smallest gaps breaking apart walls and foundations. It silently creeps under fences creating complicated legal issues between you and your neighbours. Its mere presence on your property can reduce your house value and make it an unattractive purchase. While you may feel helpless in your fight against Japanese knotweed, we are in a position to help. We have solved hundreds of Japanese knotweed issues across the region satisfying both home owners and developers.
