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 depedant 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 heribicide treatment would be from around £4,000-£6,500.

Lee has been amazing and has listened and negotiated in a professional and sympathetic way. I was really put off by other cash for properties companies and their hard sell, but you have been completely different and I am very grateful. Adam you are also fab! Thank you all
