Serious about removing Japanese knotweed from your site? We’re with you, having helped clear hundreds of sites ready for development over the last 20 years.

We understand our clients want solutions that:

  • Fully remove the knotweed problem
  • Are cost-effective
  • Meet construction programmes without causing delays
  • Avoids the risk of spread and meets all statutory requirements
  • Optimises the value of your land asset

Our consultant will survey your site and provide costed recommendations for treatment or removal to suit your budget and time requirements. As a general guide, removal is the answer on development sites, unless it’s in an area that can be fenced off and left undisturbed, in which case herbicide treatment may suffice.

We provide the full range of removal services, from site supervision, excavation, screening, stockpiling and off-site disposal, all backed with insurance-backed guarantees underwritten at Lloyd’s.

Cost depends on knotweed quantity and method. See this useful Information Paper for knotweed budget costing or speak to one of our experts.

We have robust systems in place for Environmental and Health & Safety management. Risk assessments are carried out for every aspect of our business to identify situations where harm could be caused. We have an ethos of continuous improvement to eliminate or reduce the risks with detailed working procedures, on-going training and monitoring.
