20 Years of Invasive Plant Removal

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.

Eco-Friendly Approach

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.
