Japanese Knotweed Removal Sheffield


Japanese knotweed 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 Sheffield, you can ensure your infestation is removed permanently, and avoid the cost of knotweed damage in future.

Japanese Knotweed Removal Cost in Sheffield


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 in Sheffield


Sheffield’s reputation is an industrial one with modern developments to the city including an increased focus on retail and commerce. Sheffield’s gross value added has increased by 60% over almost ten years, standing at £9.2 billion in 2007. Its wider economy has also shown growth, averaging around an impressive 5% annually.

Economic success is hard fought for, especially given the recent recession. This is one of the reasons it is so important that knotweed infestations within the Sheffield area are identified and removed quickly and safely. The weed is capable of widespread damage to residential, commercial and industrial properties, as well as city infrastructure.

Such damages are costly, even crippling if left untreated for long periods of time. In severe cases, well-rooted knotweed can take years of sustained treatment to remove.

Having thought we had found knotweed in our garden and knowing what this might mean, we shared a photo with the company (TP knotweed) for an ‘expert’ to check. We received a speedy reply, reassurance and information about how we could proceed. I cannot thank The company enough for their swift reply which reduced significantly our stress levels. The company came as a recommendation from a friend & they certainly lived up to their reputation. I would have no hesitation in recommending them. Thank you to Tom, whose knowledge was invaluable.

I was extremely happy with my dealings with TP knotweed right from day one, they're extremely courteous and knowledgeable and accurately allayed any fears that I may have had following the initial survey, highly recommended. Tom Payne has been informative and thorough throughout. They are highly recommended and if I had go through the same experience again, I'll be asking for them first. Their initial fee is reasonable and the potential savings in a seller's market were much appreciated. Many thanks, Neil
