Autumn is upon us and today we bring you a story about a Japanese knotweed removal Hereford couple, that we first had contact with last Spring.

We started the eradication process about 18 months ago and by the winter of 2014, the signs were good that we had completely removed this worried Hereford’s couples Japanese knotweed infestation. Knotweed lays dormant in the winter, so we wouldn’t know if we were successful until the spring of this year.

The signs were all positive, with no evidence of a knotweed resurgence. even so, we treated the area with a second treatment of chemicals (we initially used a stem injection) just to make sure that the knotweed was destroyed.
