Japanese knotweed is no laughing matter. It can both damage and devalue properties, although it is no longer illegal or notifiable to have Japanese Knotweed on your property. However you could be fined up to £5,000 or be sent to prison for up to 2 years if you allow contaminated soil or plant material from any waste you transfer to spread into the wild.

Unfortunately by law, if you find Japanese Knotweed on your land, it is your responsibility to eradicate it and prevent its further spread.

So what can you do?

Digging out Japanese Knotweed
Simply digging out Japanese knotweed is of course possible, but due to the depth that the roots can penetrate (up to 3m deep), regrowth usually occurs. Be aware that it takes just 0.8g of root for a new plant to grow again.

This method also creates problems with regards to disposal as Japanese knotweed is classed as 'controlled waste' under the Environmental Protection Act 1990. This requires a specific licence to transport Japanese knotweed waste, which can then only be taken to a landfill site licensed to accept Japanese knotweed.

Maybe we can help?

Chemical application on Japanese Knotweed
Arguably the most effective way to control and remove Japanese knotweed is to spray it with one of a number of commercial weedkillers - known as herbicides. Your local professional and award winning garden company 'The Gardeners of Eaden' are based in littlehampton and can provide a free assessment and quote regarding this.
