TP knotweed provide Japanese knotweed control, removal and removal services throughout the UK, including Plymouth and the surrounding area. Our specialist contractors hold all relevant NPTC certifications and are experienced in all aspects of knotweed treatment and disposal.
When left untreated, Japanese knotweed is capable of growing through stone, brick, concrete and even metal, exploiting weaknesses in these materials to force its way upwards and out. During its peak growing season, the weed can grow as fast as 3 mm a day, making response times integral to its effective treatment.
At TP knotweed we pride ourselves on the efficiency of our service, offering a site examination to determine your situation, and a written quote the same day, in the event that we confirm the presence of knotweed on your premises.

Japanese knotweed Removal Plymouth
Japanese knotweed in Plymouth has an incredibly robust plant structure, allowing it to grow in almost any environment. This is largely why the removal of Japanese knotweed is so difficult.
With its ability to tolerate low temperatures, it can rapidly spread through any gaps in structures like bricks or concrete. By choosing a trusted Japanese knotweed removal specialist in Plymouth, you can ensure your infestation is removed permanently, and avoid the cost of knotweed damage in future.
Japanese knotweed Removal Cost in Plymouth
There is no one fixed Japanese knotweed removal cost, as this depends on the treatment plan and extent of your infestation.
Our careful and methodical treatment of Japanese knotweed using appropriate chemicals and dosages over time allow for successful control of the Japanese knotweed, as well as prevent it from spreading. We offer a 100% guarantee that our herbicide treatment programmes will prevent any future above ground growth. However, this treatment method does not guarantee that the underground rhizomes will be removed.
Excavation involves digging up the entire root system, and is the only method which allows Japanese knotweed to be removed fully and permanently. It’s important for works to be carried out by experts such as TPK knotweed, to ensure complete removal, as a minute piece of rhizome has the ability to regrow and lead to spreading.
Japanese knotweed – Plymouth Properties
Located on the south coast in Devon, Plymouth is perhaps most famous for its maritime contributions and its gin.
The city became a major commercial shipping port during the Industrial Revolution, exporting various materials and resources and receiving imports from further afield. While Plymouth still relies strongly on its maritime industry, like many UK cities its economy depends increasingly on its commercial and retail sectors.
knotweed can affect you in many different ways. You might be having difficulty selling your property – most high-street banks are put off by the weed. knotweed removal by a PCA-accredited expert with a 10-year Insurance-Backed Guarantee keeps you and your bank happy.
