HOW TO IDENTIFY JAPANESE KNOTWEED?
What It Is
Japanese knotweed is a problematic weed that has become the scourge of residents across the country. The weed has caused nothing but a headache to homeowners and gardeners who have attempted to fight its growth with all their strength, only to find out that the intrusive plant has refused to go away.
Japanese knotweed displays an undying resilience to survive, and it’s easily dispersed from one point to another, further frustrating the efforts made by locals and governments to manage it. It’s important for everyone to be up-to-date so that they are able to spot it and act immediately.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO IDENTIFY?
The earlier you identify Japanese knotweed and start treatment, the safer your home and garden will be from its harmful effects. The roots of the weed are strong enough to push their way through weak areas of concrete, causing thousands of pounds’ worth of damage to the walls and foundations of buildings. Japanese knotweed also has the ability to sprout up through potholes in the yard and outgrow nearby plants and vegetables in the garden.
Even more damaging is the fact that homes found with Japanese knotweed growing on their property can be devalued in price and refused mortgages and planning permissions by authorities. The loss you will incur once the weed is discovered on your land will make it even harder to sell your home in an attempt to run away from it.
The physical characteristics of the plant can vary from season to season, so here are some of the key features that you should be looking out for at each stage of its life.
