How I can help

1 Email me a clear close-up photo of the suspected offender and also one of the areas it covers. In many cases, I am able to quickly identify whether or not you have Japanese Knotweed or something else. This service is free of charge.

2 If I suspect you have knotweed, I’ll arrange for a site inspection. I visit in an unmarked van, so your neighbours need not know. There is a small charge for this to cover my travel expenses.
3 I will prepare a report, explaining how I recommend removing the infestation, together with my costs and expected time scale. Once you have my report, accept my findings, and ask me formally to commence work, mortgage companies are normally prepared to proceed with advancing the mortgage.
4 I offer a ten-year insurance-backed guarantee.

What you might not know

about Japanese Knotweed

Trying to sort out the problem yourself will usually make matters worse
Cutting the knotweed, for example, can cause it to spread faster
The best treatment options are determined by maturity and stage of growth. Only an expert can assess this
Japanese knotweed can remain dormant for years. If you shock the plant into hibernation, you can create greater problems
There are regulations in place prohibiting you of disposing of Japanese knotweed at a public site eg your local recycling facility
