Our client Angela Francis, who lives in Earley near Reading, was mis-sold a species of bamboo by her local nursery when she planted an ornamental garden a few years ago, as reported by the Reading Chronicle. Despite being reassured that it wouldn’t spread or grow more than a metre high, new shoots appeared in several new locations in Angela’s garden. It also spread beneath her patio and was heading towards the house when she asked Environet to remove it for her.
Angela said: “Bamboo can look lovely but I would urge people to be very careful as most types are invasive and it could turn out to be a costly mistake.”
Environet undertook a complete excavation to remove the bamboo, enabling Angela to restore some balance to her garden, protect her from further damage to the patio, and the rest of her property in future
