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.
Our first step is to identify if you have Japanese knotweed. For a quick ID, you can send us some photos. Alternatively, we can carry out a full site survey to confirm the extent of the infestation.
JKSL will provide a range of treatment options individually tailored depending on your site requirements.
A detailed breakdown of costs for each phase of treatment will be provided, including on-going monitoring programmes with insurance backed guarantees.
Our experienced and professional in-house teams will carry out the treatment to the highest of standards to achieve full eradication. All works are carried out in accordance with the INNSA Code of Practice.
A range of treatment solutions are available, from in-situ herbicide application to excavation and removal or burial. All carried out in-house by our experienced team.
