Knotweed Services UK have been treating, removing and providing management plans for years. We have seen Japanese knotweed infestations that were huge on commercial properties. For domestic properties, the infestation is usually confined to peoples gardens – with the spread into other neighouring properties.
However, today we bring you a story and news item based on our Japanese knotweed removal Ludlow service. Initially the customer emailed us with this:
“Hi there, we think we may have a Japanese knotweed infestation. We are located in Ludlow and want to sell our home but the estate agent wants us to identify the plant in the pictures we have emailed. This is fairly urgent.”
Now – ofcourse we can help. We can utilise our Japanese knotweed removal Ludlow service. We can also provide our clients with a management plan – facilitating a smooth sale or purchase of a house. What we were blown away by was the sheer size of the infestation – partly due to the gentle email, it was almost nonchalant. The infestation looked like a forest!
See the gallery below to see the size of this infestation:
We are happy to report that the client has opted for our Japanese knotweed removal Ludlow service and we have began with a stem injection procedure. We will stem inject until the knotweed looks to be lying. We will then return back and either continue with stem injections, spraying or burning onsite. Whatever the method – one thing all of our clients can count on is that we will eradicate their Japanese knotweed problem!
Japanese knotweed continues to be featuring heavily in the news (radio, TV and news papers). The government has recently introduced laws and penalties for those that don’t manage their Japanese knotweed invasion. You can now be fined upto £2500 (£20,000 if you’re a company) and receieve an ASBO!!
Discovering Japanese Knotweed on or around your property can be quite distressing. Knotweed Services UK understand that no one wants to be told their property is worth less because of an aggressive weed in their garden however Japanese Knotweed will inevitably devalue your property. Eradicating it yourself would be very difficult and would require lots of time researching the plant properly. It would also require you to purchase expensive equipment, that’s why we strongly suggest using a specialist contractor such as ourselves. We have the professional training and experience to effectively eradicate any Japanese Knotweed infestation.
