Japanese knotweed was introduced to the UK in the 18th century as an ornamental plant and was widely planted across the UK for its attractive appearance. It’s since then become notorious for rapid growth and causing significant damage to the outer layers and foundations of many homes.
For that reason, it’s become classed as one of the world’s ‘worst species’ of plants by the World Conservation Union.
If your home has been affected by Japanese knotweed, you may find it difficult to get a mortgage until the issue has been taken care of.

Give our Japanese knotweed specialists a call, and we’ll be happy to give you the right advice.
Because of the hardy nature of Japanese knotweed, it can often bulldoze its way through other plant species on your property and disrupt the natural biodiversity. We’ll work hard to try to protect the plant life around the knotweed wherever we can.
Contrary to what some contractors may have you believe, Japanese knotweed cannot grow through solid concrete.
It will, however, make its way through the smallest of gaps and imperfections. If you suspect you’ve found Japanese knotweed, speak to our knotweed treatment experts to find out what to do next.
