What is Japanese knotweed and why is it so serious?
If you think you have this highly invasive species of plant on your property, then you may wonder what it is and what all the fuss is about. Non-native to the UK, Japanese knotweed is a persistent and aggressive plant that can grow through masonry, concrete and tar. A member of the Dock family, it can reach up to 3 metres high above ground when fully grown and have a root network 3 metres deep and 7 metres across underground.
It is this underground growth that makes it such a serious problem to be dealt with by experts. If the plant is too close to your home or commercial property, then the roots can spread to block drains or watercourses. Naturally, this sort of growth could also see damage to the foundations of the building. Most insurers refuse to cover you for damage resulting from Japanese knotweed. This makes taking the correct steps to get rid of it vital if you spot it.
