Japanese Knotweed Rhondda all – What You Need to Know
Japanese Knotweed creates many problems for house owners and commercial properties. The plant makes it difficult to get a loan on or sell a property, which impacts both buyers and sellers.
If you are a homeowner or commercial land-owner, and Japanese Knotweed is on your property, you may have to wait until the invasive plant is removed properly and legally before your project can proceed.
Prevent this Pest from taking over a Property
- Japanese knotweed can grow through tarmac and concrete, posing a threat to your building or property.
- Lenders often won’t lend against a building where Japanese Knotweed has been identified.
- Knotweed obstructs access to infrastructure, including roads and rivers. It can cause major disruption in commercial areas.

FOLIAR SPRAYING *
Most common treatment. The spraying of powerful chemicals with a knapsack. We ensure that other plants aren’t damaged. The most effective time for foliar spraying to Japanese Knotweed is in Spring
FOLIAR LEAF WIPING *
With this Japanese knotweed treatment we employ a device to ‘physically wipe’ our chemicals onto the Japanese Knotweed leaves. This application is so precise that we can often use a higher concentration of chemical.
We apply a controlled amount of herbicide directly into the invasive weed. Due to being injected directly into the Japanese Knotweed, this is the most crafty method of removal. It isn’t dependent on the weather.
Biomass is a form of excavation and removal but instead of extracting all of the soil impacted by Japanese Knotweed, we only remove the infested parts of the soil. It’s an excellent Japanese Knotweed control method that allows the reuse of the soil. Reducing the use of landfill.
Crown and stems are capable of regenerating and even small fragments of cut crown or stem are capable of regenerating and becoming a new invasive weed – removing these from the equation is a great strategy.
— TREATMENT OPTIONS AVAILABLE IN Rhondda
A tried and tested methodology used on hundreds of sites across the UK.
Using the screening method, the Japanese knotweed rhizome material is separated from the soil material. The Japanese knotweed material is then either transported to licensed landfill at a much lower disposal rate or incinerated on site using a D6 exemption from the Environment Agency or Natural Resources Wales.
The cleaned soils can then be reused in locations away from any construction, normally in soft landscaping areas.
This can reduce the landfill & backfill requirement costs significantly and can also help to reduce the carbon footprint on site due to reduced vehicle movements to landfill.
Knotweed Services can provide a biosecurity operative to supervise any excavations and movement of soils containing Japanese knotweed on site.
As part of these measures, we can provide a biosecurity boot wash and machine-washing area installed in an area at the entrance to the site.
We will provide all toolbox talks for the main contractor on site, which will be signed by all contractors involved in the operation on site.
We can provide temporary geotextile barriers if required in areas to maintain the biosecurity on site.
Once the works have been completed, we will provide the client with a full biosecurity report.
This method can be used in conjunction with other treatment methods on site.
EXCAVATION AND DISPOSAL
This treatment method is ideal where time constraints are present and there’s no other option other than to remove both the Japanese Knotweed and contaminated soil to a registered landfill.
By removing all traces of the infestation quickly, this offers a rapid solution to your problem and allows your commercial project to begin groundwork’s almost straight away. When time is of the essence, there is no quicker Japanese Knotweed removal/treatment method.
Any waste taken off-site will be done so with a licensed waste carrier to a suitably authorised landfill site.
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.
The burial requirements for Japanese Knotweed are as follows:
- The Environment Agency recommends that the top of the burial cell should be a minimum of 2 metres below ground level.
- The overall depth of the burial pit should be in excess of 5 metres deep. All root barrier seams are welded together forming an encapsulated cell from which the Japanese Knotweed cannot escape. Clean soil is then used to backfill on top of the cell.
- To prevent accidental disturbance of the burial site, it is recorded on all site plans and future land owners should be made aware of the location.
STOCKPILE & TREAT
Bunding is the method of relocating contaminated Japanese Knotweed soil to a different area of the site being treated. A bund is a shallow area of the contaminated soil, typically 0.5m deep.
The bund can either be raised, on top of the ground, or placed within an excavation to make the surface flush with the surrounding area.
The purpose of the bund is to move the Japanese Knotweed to an area of the site that is not used. This ‘buys time’ for treatment that would not be possible where the Japanese Knotweed was originally located.
At Knotweed Services we can provide the client with bespoke treatment plans depending on the locations of the Japanese knotweed.
These plans can work in conjunction with other methods of treatment where access is limited to pedestrian movements i.e., embankments or existing pathways within a site.
This will normally consist of up to 3 visits per annum to apply herbicide by either foliar spray technique or stem injection during the growing season over a period of 3 years, with a monitoring period of 2 years thereafter.
We would select the appropriate herbicides depending on the surrounding foliage or environmental constraints.
After each visit a full treatment record would be provided with photos showing the progress of the works and then an annual report.
