Invasive weed control is sometimes necessary to prevent Japanese knotweed and other invasive weeds from overwhelming gardens and encroaching on properties and commercial premises.
The Property Care Association (PCA) have a special section for members who are highly specialised in undertaking invasive weed control services to identify, treat and where necessary remove unwanted invasive weeds.
Unfortunately, overtime invasive weeds have become more commonplace in the UK. News stories and legal precedents have made people more aware of the potential damage (and in some cases, harm) that they can cause, both financially and to your home or business. Their destructive presence can devalue land and property and even lead to the refusal of mortgages on properties that are blighted by them.
Different species of invasive weeds effect property (and in some cases wellbeing) in various ways.
