Could You Identify Japanese Knotweed in Your Garden?
Japanese knotweed is a highly invasive weed, and without proper removal, you could end up with a real problem. Hiring a Japanese knotweed specialist is the only way to properly ensure complete removal and to ensure you don’t have ongoing problems with this weed in the future. From domestic gardens to allotments, business parks to stately homes, an expert can ensure that you have control over the Japanese knotweed on your site and provide documentation to assist potential future sales. This whole process begins with identification.
Some people may not have a problem identifying Japanese knotweed, but others may not be so confident. Here at JKSL, we specialise in Japanese knotweed identification and removal, so we’ve put together a few tips to help you begin the identification process. The first thing to know is that Japanese knotweed is a non-native invasive weed that can grow pretty tall (averaging 3m). With its large ovate green leaves, zigzag bamboo like stems and dense crown material, Japanese knotweed is a weed you can easily spot.
