What We Did

Following from our advice, we were instructed to implement the initial herbicide treatment of multiple areas of Japanese knotweed and Japanese Rose in the years before the main works commenced. We then excavated and buried the waste on site within a POS area. Vertical root barriers were installed where necessary and the site is due to be monitored over the coming growing seasons. No re-regrowth has been recorded to date.

We acted as principle contractor facilitating the clients site vegetation clearance contractors works as well as securing the site during the burials 4 week operation. JKSL supplied and installed a bespoke crossing point over buried gas mains and liaised with the relevant parties over the works.

JKSL will continue to monitor the site in line with industry guidelines.

All mechanical works are covered by our 15 year in-house guarantee as standard
