We at Japanese knotweed Ireland offer complete solution to your invasive plant problem. We provide services to many different levels, from construction and development companies, to councils and housing associations, as well as private home owners. After an initial site assessment is undertaken, a suitable re-mediation report can be drafted that best suits the needs of the client. This involves full survey of the site and surrounding area, risk assessments, traffic management plans if required, and also outlining the control options best suited. As control options we offer the following services. For more in-depth explanations of these treatments, please see our website at www.japaneseknotweedireland.ie. Herbicide treatment programme Stockpiling / Bund solutions Burial and Root membranes Excavation and off site removal Which control option is chosen is largely dependant on the clients requirements. For example, herbicide treatment is arguably the most cost effective solution, but time requirements for some developments may not allow for a treatment program of a number of years. With all control action undertaken, we implement a monitoring programme which involves continual monitoring of the site for at least two seasons to check for future growth. Lastly, it is important to remember that the root / rhizomes of Japanese knotweed is extremely resilient, and there have been unconfirmed reports of it lying in dormancy for up to twenty years. Be wary of advertised 'quick-fix' solutions. However with adequate planning in place and professional treatment you can vastly reduce the likelihood of it reappearing.
