Invasive bamboo takes over garden in Walton on Thames

Keith Mullins bought a new build home in Walton-on-Thames in 2009. Bamboo had been planted in the beautifully landscaped front garden and grew happily for several years before new shoots began appearing all over the lawn.

He attempted to pull them up himself and began to mow the lawn regularly to inhibit growth, but the bamboo was growing quickly and spreading out of control so he instructed Environet to excavate it.
