All too often, invasive plants are dealt with by cutting them and piling the materials on site. The recent shift in regulations, however, is no longer allowing this method. Using the screening method, the Japanese knotweed rhizome material is separated from the soil material.
Soils that have been cleaned of contaminants can be reused in locations away from construction, such as soft landscaping areas. Great for reducing landfill!
As part of our biosecurity measures, we will provide a boot wash and machine washing area at the entrance to the site. We will provide toolbox talks for the main contractor on site and have contractors sign them.
We can provide temporary geotextile barriers to protect the site and maintain biosecurity during construction. After we have finished our work, we will issue a full biosecurity report.

Cell burial comprises of moving Knotweed contaminated soil from one location on site, burying it in an excavated pit which is lined with a root barrier membrane, in a different position on the site.
STOCKPILE & TREAT
Stockpiling is the method by which contaminated Japanese knotweed soil is removed and stored in an area away from the site being treated. A bund is a shallow trench, typically 0.5m deep.
The purpose of the bund is to move Japanese Knotweed to an area that is not used so that treatment can be carried out on the plant in a way that would not be possible if it remained where it was originally located.
Herbicide application doesn’t kill Japanese Knotweed overnight.
Our herbicide treatment typically lasts 3 years and we’d provide treatments to your properties between 2 and 3 times per annum.
As discussed above, not the quickest way to deal with Knotweed but can be cheaper than other options.
