What's lurking in your garden this Halloween?

Please don’t panic if you think you’ve got knotweed but... ‘who ya gonna call? Ghostbusters!’, well not quite, but Japanese Knotweed Ltd will help you solve all your knotweed problems!

As the evenings are drawing in and days and nights get colder it’s the time of Halloween. The loved or loathed tradition of trick-or-treating may come-a-knocking at your door but you will already have been dealt a trick of nature if you have Japanese knotweed on or near your property. The presence of knotweed can restrict the use of your garden, possibly present structural risk and will devalue your property.

The first most important step is to accurately identify if you are affected by Japanese knotweed. Your garden is going through a change with many shrubs dying off and trees losing their leaves as these plants go into winter dormancy. Japanese knotweed is doing the same and its leaves will be going from the summer green to yellow and brown before falling off leaving drying brown stems.

What’s the answer?

Talk to us. We can help. We offer two options for you to establish if you have Japanese knotweed on your property.

  1. Free Identification Service
    Take pictures of the plant you suspect to be Japanese knotweed. Ensure there’s enough light and take a few shots including the whole plant and a close up of the leaves and stems. Email them to ident@knotweed.co.uk for a free identification. We’re quick to reply and it’s free. You have nothing to lose!
  2. Free Knotweed Survey
    Call us on 0333 2414 413 to book a Japanese knotweed survey. One of our PCA qualified surveyors will come to your property and survey the land and neighbouring land for evidence of Japanese knotweed. We will then produce a report that can be used when applying for a mortgage. If we find Japanese knotweed on your property, the survey and report is free. If we don’t find Japanese knotweed on your property, the survey and report is £140 +VAT.
