    Japanese Knotweed Removal London FAQs

    How fast will Japanese knotweed grow without removal?

    Here in the United Kingdom, we tend to not have harsh weather conditions and with nothing to fight against, Japanese Knotweed can grow at an unchallenged rate and may have devastating consequences. It is possible for Japanese Knotweed to grow at up to 20cm per day and has the ability to break through a number of surfaces. These surfaces are some of the sturdiest and most common throughout society, such as concrete, tarmac and brick. It can overpower practically any other plants, swarming them and preventing access to light.

    Is removing Japanese knotweed a legal requirement?

    Japanese Knotweed is illegal to plant in the United Kingdom, but completely legal to have it growing within your own garden, or land. However, if the plant spreads to neighbouring houses or gardens, you may be liable for legal action being taken against you. Japanese Knotweed is treated as controlled waste and cannot be dumped in domestic green recycling bins, with only licensed landfill sites being able to take it.

    What if my neighbour requires Japanese knotweed removal? Am I liable?

    The short answer is no. According to a recent Court of Appeal ruling, landowners are now able to claim damages if the identified Japanese knotweed plant has invaded their property from elsewhere, which won’t leave you out of pocket. In short, if it can be proved that the knotweed growing stemmed from an adjoining property, that homeowner could be held liable for the cost of its removal and any loss of value.

    Is removing Japanese knotweed covered by home insurance?

    Unfortunately, most home insurance policies don’t cover Japanese knotweed removal, and so you won’t be able to make a claim for treatment or removal services. Insurance providers will claim negligence on your side, stating you haven’t taken the necessary measures needed to protect your property. Japanese knotweed is the responsibility of the landowner.

    Can removing Japanese knotweed be done with DIY?

    Removing Japanese knotweed yourself from your property in London can be done, but it is often difficult and time-consuming. Japanese knotweed removal needs to be done quickly and efficiently, as it can grow up to 10cm a day. It also cannot only be removed with herbicides, and often full excavation is needed. When removing Japanese knotweed yourself, you need to ensure every trace of the plant is taken care of otherwise it will easily grow back.

    CYB Environmental recommends investing in a professional Japanese knotweed removal service, for a quick and efficient solution to Japanese knotweed in London.
