How To Identify Japanese Knotweed

The best time to spot Japanese Knotweed shoots is during early autumn or summer. The plant almost looks asparagus like with fat purple or reddish shoots than can grow up to 2cms per day, they have a pink bud and generally have green leaves that are shaped like hearts or shields. At the peak of their power the Japanese Knotweed stem can reach up to 3 meters in height and the stems will have purple speckles with the leaves on each side. When they bud in late summer you will see a creamy white coloured flower. The roots of the knotweed may be living unground but laying dorment during the winter months. If you have Knotweed it can be incredibly hard to get rid of and you will need to put a Knotweed removal plan in place.

Japanese Knotweed Removal Cost

The cost of removing Japanese Knotweed varies massively dependant on the amount of land that you have affected and the type of solution that will be required from a simple herbicide programme to a full excavation of the area. The price can typically range anywhere for a small herbicide treatment at around £2,000 to a very large full excavation and disposal at £200,000 which is of course unlikely. As another example, a large herbicide treatment would be around £4,000-£6,500.

Abbie wills was absolutely amazing! Throughout a journey of ups and downs she has been the one to be chasing both sides of solicitors making sure we had a quick sale. Customer service Abbie has provided has been absolutely outstanding. Would recommend highly.

Happy customer

Would highly recommend The Property Buying company if your looking for a quick sale hassle free. My property is complex because it only holds a short lease & because of this it wouldn't sell for the market value & only to a cash buyer. The property Buying Company have helped to change my world by purchasing it from me at obviously a much lower price than it would be if the lease had been longer but now I am able to purchase another property and move on. Elie has gone the extra mile in my opionion... he has worked so very hard to help me not only with the sale of my property but even with negotiating with the seller's of the property I am now hoping to buy! That's what I call great customer service!! Big thank you to Daniel and Charlotte too for their professional friendly customer service.

Never heard of this company before but l have to say that the professionalism was superb from start to finish. Initially Jessica was my first port of call and again she was very helpful indeed. Our main contact after Jessica was Abbie Wills who was both extremely helpful,understanding and gave fantastic customer service deserves a pay rise.What a lovely lady.
