This provides an instant and impressive rectification method to the problem of Japanese knotweed. On completion the knotweed has been completely removed, allowing for unimpeded development of the area.

Although the least sustainable of our methods, our approach and ethos puts the emphasis firmly on reducing quantities of waste removed to landfills, and hence cost to the customer.

This is done via expert accurate identification of rhizome extent in the soils, ensuring complete removal while only removing those soils that possess the rhizome.

In some situations, it may be possible to relocate knotweed from an undesirable location to another location on-site where it can be treated long term with herbicides. This provides the instant eradication of the knotweed from its current location (to enable development for example), while sustainably retaining and treating the knotweed on site.

The excavated waste is carefully double-handled over site along designated haul routes between the locations. Often only suitable for larger sites, the knotweed is relocated as a formed stockpile or landscape bund where any re-growth of knotweed is treated with herbicide. Once the knotweed growth has been controlled the relocated area can be carefully seeded or planted.
