Japanese knotweed and other invasive plants have become a common sight in the North of England since their introduction in the 19th century, colonising our gardens, parks, verges, countryside and waterways. Japanese knotweed is the most problematic, but other plants such as bamboo, horsetail, giant hogweed, Himalayan balsam and cotoneaster can also cause considerable problems.
Towns and cities with a strong industrial heritage tend to be most seriously affected, such as Bolton, Blackburn, Liverpool, Sheffield, Greater Manchester and Newcastle, although the plant is also commonly found thriving in rural locations and suburbs across the North.
Japanese knotweed can damage property, lead to expensive repairs and spread to neighbouring properties, creating complicated legal issues. It can even cause home values to plummet and make them difficult to sell. We have successfully helped hundreds of homeowners across the region overcome problems that Japanese knotweed has caused on their properties.
Bamboo also spreads, its rhizomes extending 30 feet or more, with new shoots appearing through lawns and patios. Where this occurs in an adjacent property it can result in neighbour disputes which can ultimately lead to legal action.
