Mesh Tech is a patented technology designed and developed in the UK by Dr Eric Donnelly and Japanese Knotweed Solutions Ltd. It is an environmentally-friendly method of controlling Japanese knotweed.
The main advantages of MeshTech are that it requires no chemical treatment and it causes minimal impact on the sites where it is used. MeshTech can also provide protection of riparian areas against soil erosion – a particular problem where Japanese knotweed grows on riverbanks. It is an environmentally sound solution to a problem which all too often involves significant disturbance to contaminated sites – with damaging consequences to other flora (and fauna), and it is a cheaper solution that removal to landfill.
