Japanese Knotweed was brought to Britain as an ornamental garden plant in the mid-nineteenth century. Since then it has become widespread and is now second on the environmental agencies wanted list. It causes serious problems by displacing native flora and can cause structural damage. We are a leading specialist on Japanese Knotweed in the South East and can advise on the best methods of controlling this invasive plant.
To ignore Japanese Knotweed can prove costly in the long run. Allowing it to grow beyond site boundaries can create serious legal implications.
