Our Commercial Knotweed Services
Japanese Knotweed Ltd provide a professional service with a no nonsense practical approach to the treatment of Japanese knotweed. Upon enquiry you will receive a site investigation and be issued with a Knotweed Management Plan (KMP) including a survey report, remedial methods evaluation and works quotations.
How the knotweed is treated depends on the site and any plans that may require the disturbance of knotweed contaminated ground. Our remedial decision process will establish if knotweed can be controlled in situ with herbicide, or whether it requires removal via excavation.
All our works are recorded within a KMP for your site and covered by a guarantee. Where necessary the guarantee can be insured (an Insurance Backed Guarantee) via our membership of the Property Care Association.

Why is Knotweed a problem?
- The knotweed plant or ground containing any part of the plant is classed as controlled waste if removed from site under the Environmental Protection Act 1990.
- Japanese knotweed is an invasive and resilient weed.
- The rhizomes and roots extend deep into the ground and can re-emerge many years after treatment.
- If left to grow and spread it has the potential to cause damage to the hard landscaping and buildings.
Japanese Knotweed Ltd has a large client base with excellent customer feedback and a growing number of repeat customers. We work with construction companies, developers and public bodies on construction sites where our experienced operational teams provide cost effective and efficient remedial solutions.
Away from constructions sites, knotweed is often chemically treated and we work extensively with Councils, Housing Associations and commercial property owners and are currently running over 3000 herbicide contracts. You can view some of our Case Studies here.
