In the South West of England our many beautiful, often exotically planted estates, mild climate and passion for gardening mean that Japanese knotweed and other invasive plants have become a common sight since their introduction in the 19th century. Japanese knotweed is considered the most problematic, but other plants such as Bamboo, Horsetail, Giant hogweed, Himalayan balsam and Cotoneaster can also cause considerable problems.
Knotweed is found throughout the region in gardens as well as on development land. Reports of Japanese knotweed are most common in built-up areas such as Redruth, Camborne, Truro, Barnstaple, Ilfracombe, Plymouth, Exeter, Torquay, Bridgwater, Bath and Bristol.
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 a neighbouring property it can result in neighbour disputes which can ultimately lead to legal action.
