Why choose The Knotweed Company as your contractor to treat invasive weeds?

Thursday 26th April 2012

We offer a straightforward service to our clients. We can (and do) eradicate invasive weeds within an agreed time table on our clients’ properties. If there are any issues which might prevent us from doing this (for instance if Japanese knotweed is growing on neighbouring land and the neighbours won’t allow the treatment to take place) we discuss the options with you.

We are cost effective. We don’t claim to be the cheapest, but we are certainly not the most expensive either! We recently quoted for a straightforward 5-year herbicide programme on a residential property; some of our competitors quoted 3 times and even 6 times our quote!

We are professionals. All our technicians (based in West Sussex, Brentwood, Northampton, Manchester and Yorkshire) are fully competent and qualified to the relevant NPTC standards. As the Managing Director I am also BASIS qualified, to be able to offer advice on pesticide choice and use, you need to be a member of the BASIS Professional Register – which I am.

We’ve done it before. The advantage of having direct experience of managing Japanese knotweed eradication on literally hundreds (perhaps thousands by now) of sites, means that we have seen it all before. We’ve seen Japanese knotweed growing through buildings, out of roofs, along river systems, in front gardens, back gardens, parks and Nature Reserves - you name it! We’ve sprayed knotweed, we’ve buried it on construction sites in lined cells, and we’ve taken it to landfill. We’ve seen “Expert Knotweed Companys” offering ‘instant eradication through herbicides’ in various periods of 6 weeks, 10 weeks, 12 weeks, 1 year – and we’ve seen them fail.

We are proud to say that we follow best practice and work within guidelines as stated in the Code of Practice published by the Environment Agency.

If you would like to talk to a professional about your knotweed problem, please call us. Our quotations are free and without obligation.
