Japanese knotweed information

Japanese Knotweed is a non-native invasive plant, and one of the most destructive plants in the UK. As well as having a negative impact on native plant species and flooding, if left untreated its growth can result in extensive costs to the property owner; including repair of damage to buildings and/or hard surfaces.

There are also legal implications when buying or selling property, as owners who have knotweed growing on their land now have a responsibility to manage it (recently upgraded from merely having to prevent it from spreading).
