COMPLETELEY REMOVING JAPANESE KNOTWEED
SINCE 2002

Founded by Michael Clough, Japanese Knotweed Solutions Limited (JKSL) is the UK’s longest established and most experienced Japanese knotweed removal company. 

Working with many major construction companies, local authorities and housebuilders, we have experienced Japanese knotweed in many places around the country, each requiring tailored solutions to completely eradicate the Knotweed infestation.

The first step is for one of our skilled experts to come out to your site to establish the extent of the problem, before creating a full management plan to eradicate the Knotweed. Based on environmental considerations we will choose what we believe the most effective solution is to completely remove the Japanese Knotweed and to help ensure it doesn’t return in the future.

All our treatments can be fully insured for 10 years, giving peace of mind that the treatments we perform are completed to the highest standards. We also have a comprehensive aftercare package we employ after every treatment, offering a full end to end service.

We are a team of dedicated, skilled, professionals who share a great deal of experience. We invest heavily in the continual training of all our employees, ensuring you always have a highly qualified team working on your project with the latest industry accreditations.

We believe that the removal of Japanese knotweed should only be done once and done right, so be wary of cheaper imitations.

Japanese Knotweed Removal Solutions

JKSL is an industry-leading Japanese knotweed removal company who have spent over 15 years raising awareness about the dangers of this invasive weed, as well as offering an innovative and highly effective range of treatments. We operate around the country from our base in the north west of England, with highly effective identification methods and a commitment to building a personalised treatment and removal package for each individual site. Having provided a service to hundreds of different clients, we can confidently guarantee a 100% removal success rate to both domestic and commercial settings, with our team able to deal with even large-scale industrial sites.

With our in-depth knowledge and research into getting rid of Japanese knotweed in the most environmentally conscious and lasting manner, we’re widely recognised as Japanese knotweed removal specialists, a level of expertise that has led to our work being highlighted by many media outlets including the BBC. It’s vitally important that when dealing with any Japanese knotweed found on your site, you enlist the services of a reliable Japanese knotweed removal contractor. This may involve an initial outlay, but it is much preferable to trying to take on the job yourself, as simply chopping away at the plant can lead to a far more invasive spread and regrowth, which will have much greater financial impacts in the long run.
