Knotweed Services UK (Ltd) were contacted by our client to carry out a survey at a residential property in the Hitchin area, to survey the extent of Japanese Knotweed present in the rear garden on the subject property and neighbouring property’s.

Our technician recommend that we excavated using small plant machinery and place a biosecurity barrier between the subject property and the neighbouring property. We will then manually screen the soils using a small electric powered trommel screener to remove all traces of knotweed rhizomes and material, we will then place the rhizomes and material in secure dumping bags for onward transportation to a licensed landfill transfer station under EPA 1990 Duty of Care Guidelines. The cleaned soils can then be reinstated in the voids.



Knotweed Services UK offer their insurance backed guarantees through Guarantee Protection Insurance Ltd (GPI). GPIs primary and founding product was IBG’s and they are in the industries leaders in Japanese Knotweed insurance. The package we recommended for this project is the is “designed to provide cover in the event that the insured remedial works fail, during the period of insurance, and the contractor has ceased to trade and is unable to honour claims on the written guarantee.” (GPI, 2017).

*Taking out an IBG is optional. However, if you are in the process of selling, an IBG is a requirement from the mortgage lenders.
