Dealing with Japanese Knotweed if you Find it in the Garden

It’s that time of the year when we can get back out in the garden once again, and there are many jobs to be done at this time of year. One of the biggest issues that gardeners face is the problem of invasive plants.

There are many plants that are considered invasive to gardeners, and possibly the worst one of all is Japanese Knotweed. This is a plant that can quickly take over anywhere that it starts to grow and is so problematic that it is illegal to plant it in the wild. Although it is allowed to be planted in gardens, there are very few people, if any, that would actively encourage this.

Not only does it have a habit of taking over, but it is also capable of causing a lot of damage, both to the garden and to the home. It can grow through hard surfaces like concrete, so can therefore also cause structural damage to the property and surrounding areas, such as the drains.
