Construction Specialist Weed Removal to
Minimise Construction Delays

Professional Invasive Weeds Management

While there are many specialist contractors currently working in the Invasive Weeds Market, there are few out there who can match our team at KleerKut for experience in this sector. We offer low cost surveys for land managers and developers; these are often free for our regular clients. These surveys often form part of the site investigation document allowing cost consideration at the feasibility stage of the process. Experience shows that this design stage involvement is integral to our success when minimising cost impact to the client.

When working with contractors we can assist them in their tender process; highlighting risks, possible additional works etc., at a stage where it can be addressed with the client.

We work with developers, contractors, quantity surveyors and consultants being brought into the process anywhere from the start, middle, end… even after the end of the process if need be! We survey, consult, contract, supervise, monitor, guarantee – whatever you require, whatever your problem.

With more than 40 years combined experience in land management and remediation, development and invasive weeds control, we can work with you to find the right solution for your development.

What Problems do Invasive Weeds Cause for the Construction Industry?

Within the construction sector, invasive weeds can damage structures, roads and paving if left untreated. Some of these weeds will grow through concrete, tar and masonry, and they can also grow into drains and pipes to cause flooding. The spread of these invasive weeds can entirely transform ecosystems and cause threats to native species.

If invasive weeds are not eradicated, home builders will find it difficult to sell domestic properties to consumers as mortgage lenders will either decline a loan or place low valuations on these homes.

What are Invasive Weeds?

There are a variety of non-native invasive weeds in the UK, including:

Japanese Knotweed

This is an ornamental-looking plant which can grow up to three metres in height. It spreads via the development of a huge underground root system, with roots reaching a distance of up to seven metres from the plant and depths of up to three metres. This can be a difficult plant to eradicate as it often moves to a dormant state after treatment with herbicides, and can remain dormant for up to two years, with root systems able to remain dormant up to 25 years.

Japanese knotweed is extremely invasive and is capable of causing significant structural damage. The weed is controlled by a number of environmental protection acts and it’s recommended that professional treatments are sourced for the eradication of any Japanese knotweed found on construction sites.


Horsetail is another invasive species which can cause severe damage to roads and footpaths. This plant is resistant to treatment with weed killers and eradication by professionals is recommended.

Some of the other invasive species common throughout the UK are:
