    Horsetail (often referred to as Mare’s tail) – This is an under-rated problem, but Clearsafe Japanese Knotweed are getting a growing number of calls regarding the treatment and eradication of this plant, due to its ability to destroy new tarmac and poke through cracks in paving. We believe the problem is growing because of a lack of awareness surrounding its ability to spread on the wind using spores. The plant is very simple but robust which makes it quite resistant to non-specialist weed killers. It also has a deep root or rhizome system like Japanese Knotweed that makes it very difficult to dig out or kill with a single herbicide application.

    Rhododendron – Introduced to Britain sometime around 1763 rhododendron is a hardy evergreen flowering shrub. An invasive species it takes hold and out competes native flora and fauna. Control methods vary depending on the maturity and size of the infestation. Call now for an onsite assessment and bespoke control services.

    Giant Hogweed – After all the publicity in the last few years, it’s surprising we don’t get many calls for Giant Hogweed; most calls are mistaken identifications with Common Hogweed. Having said all this, Giant Hogweed is definitely one to call in the experts as soon as you notice it, due to the potential for serious injury. Contact with the plant can make your skin photosensitive, so that you can suddenly develop painful burns. The seeds can be very long-lasting so it needs to be dealt with. 

    Cherry Laurel – Cherry Laurel is a dense thicket forming invasive ever-green shrub of gardens, parks and woodlands from South West Asia. Similar to Rhododendron with its waxy leaves and characteristics, treatment methods are the same. Call us to enquire about our services.

    Highly recommend. I enquired with Clear safe in the evening and James went down the morning the next day to survey the property. He then produced an extensive survey report for us free of charge. Couldn’t have been more helpful!

    I've just conducted a knotweed/ invasive plant survey from James at Claresafe. I'm so impressed with the level of service, knowledge, skill and care of these guys. James was fantastic, he even went to the neighbouring properties to ensure there were no invasive plants there as well. Just above and beyond my expectations. Delighted with the service. Highly recommend for total piece of mind when buying a property. Plus, i couldn't believe the price! Amazing value for money????. 10 out of 10 service all round. Thanks so much James

    Highly recommend these guys. Following on from my initial call to CLEARSAFE KNOTWEED, James arrived at the arranged time. We walked the garden and he identified the plants and the knotweed. I felt relaxed in his company as even though very professional, his friendly demeanor made this company easy to talk to. The report was written up and a management plan put in place within a few days as promised. Massive thanks to you for taking the knotweed stress away from selling my house!

    I can’t speak highly enough about the service we were given by Clearsafe. At short notice and working to our deadline, James explained how the system worked and patiently worked through my questions and concerns. We felt confident to go ahead with them. Within a week I had a detailed management plan and an insurance-backed, long term guarantee in my possession. I think that we made the best possible choice of contractor and would recommend Clearsafe without hesitation.

    James went above and beyond supporting us in getting our mortgage accepted to proceed on a property, which had a significant amount of Knotweed on the neighbouring land. He worked with us and the builder to ensure we could proceed in the purchase. Also provided us with peace of mind. A true expert!

    From the off, James was incredibly helpful and open with communication, making the process run extremely smoothly. The team communicated excellently with neighbours to explain the process and any possible restrictions. It was not only my property that benefited from James and the teams expertise. Would highly recommend.
