Combining more than 20 years of experience with cutting edge capabilities:


Founder, Mike Clough, comes from a surveying and landscape architecture background and has run both construction and grounds maintenance companies in the past. Hence, he was well placed to observe the increasing problem of Japanese knotweed, setting up the company in response to a growing number of enquiries.

Over the years, our experience and expertise has grown to such an extent that we are now a trusted contractor for clients such as the Environment Agency and British Waterways as well as major construction and development companies across the country.


JKSL was the first company in the UK dedicated to treat only Japanese knotweed. Over the years we have dedicated much time and research to improving our techniques and solutions in order to create viable solutions to your invasive plant problems.

Our long standing, dedicated team are passionate about the environment and have vast experience managing all levels of projects across the UK.

We are a founder member of the industry trade body, INNSA (Invasive Non-Native Specialists Association) and a Property Care Association (PCA) member, so you can rest assured we are working to the highest of industry standards.

We undertake a highly professional and systematic approach to every project. Our main services are detailed below.


JKSL take environmental responsibility seriously and undergo BASIS Advanced Contractor Certification Scheme (BACCS) audits. The scheme is currently a voluntary indicator of service quality and environmental compliance.

We also comply with The Amenity Standard, to reassure our clients that all our processes and products used are safe, meet legal requirements and our teams are fully trained and certificated. The Certification is likely to become a valuable benchmark as economic conditions tighten and the offering of ineffective ‘quick fix’ solutions becomes more tempting to less scrupulous operators.

With our ISO 14001 accreditation, JKSL aim to constantly review and improve environmental performance. These are the factors which make the Company industry leaders both in terms of quality of service and environmental awareness.

Our working methods are designed to reduce the impact on the environment to a minimum. It is our intention to return the British countryside to its natural state by removing alien species, whilst causing as little damage to indigenous plants as possible.

Japanese Knotweed Solutions continue to be at the forefront of new technology relating to Japanese knotweed eradication and have developed MeshTech; a chemical free patented technology.


Japanese Knotweed Solutions Ltd, have been educating people on Japanese knotweed and invasive plants for many years. This highly invasive perennial can cause damage to hard structures, reduce land values, seriously delay development projects and result in a mortgage refusal.

The CPD training is highly informative and aimed at educating a variety of organisations who come across Japanese knotweed and other invasive weeds on a regular basis. Regular audiences include the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), Network Rail, United Utilities, Architects, Housing Associations, Construction companies plus numerous Local Authorities.
