Japanese knotweed and other invasive plants have become a common sight across the South Central region of England since its introduction in the 19th century. Urban sprawl from London and the growth of the commuter belt brought the invasive plant with it, and now it grows rampantly in our parks and gardens, verges and waterways. Japanese knotweed is the most problematic, closely followed by bamboo which has become increasingly popular in recent years due to its screening qualities but will spread quickly if left unchecked. Other invasive plants such as horsetail, giant hogweed, Himalayan balsam and cotoneaster can also cause considerable problems. 

Knotweed is found throughout the South Central region, with particular hotspots in Reading, Southampton, Oxford, Portsmouth, Farnborough and the Isle of Wight.

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.
