    Bamboo has a storied history as one of the most useful and versatile plants on earth. Actually a member of the grass family there is documented bamboo usage in China 7,000 years ago where it was used for all kinds of things including clothing, paper and household items.

    Known as “the fastest growing plant in the world” bamboo can quickly populate all kinds of gardens and landscapes which has made it extremely popular in the UK since it’s introduction as a graceful ornamental plant in the late 18th century.

    Bamboo is incredibly varied with over 1400 documented varieties, many with different characteristics so it is always important to identify the variety of bamboo you may be experiencing issues with as the first step in any treatment.

    Problems with Bamboo

    Although a graceful plant that looks great and is a good addition to any garden or landscape, if not kept under control properly bamboo can quickly spread beyond it’s boundaries and create problems.

    Its powerful rhizome network ( root structure ) is quick spreading, powerful and aggressive although this does depend on the variety of bamboo.

    It can cause problems for property owners as it can spread quickly and shoots can push up through concrete, causing damage to driveways, patios and paving stones and encroaching onto neighbouring properties.

    It can also create issues for local eco systems as it can can outcompete native plants.

    Despite there being over 1,400 varieties bamboos can generally be divided into two main categories Clumping and Running which is important because one of these categories is generally the much more invasive one.

    Clumping bamboos are on the whole less problematic as they have a short root structure that generally only extends out a few inches per year forming discrete “clumps.”

    Running bamboos are generally more troublesome as they have quick spreading and aggressive horizontal roots that can “run” far from the original root structure and invade surrounding areas.

    Again, it is important to remember that the bamboo plant ( grass ) family is incredibly diverse so it is always the most important initial step to correctly identify the type and variety of bamboo you have present.

    Bamboo Treatment & Removal

    Like most invasive weeds the correct treatment for bamboo can vary depending on the variety of bamboo and nature and spread of the infestation.

    Treatment and Removal methods include :

    Manual Removal  – Manual digging up of the bamboo and it’s roots.

    Mechanical Excavation  – Generally for larger bamboo infestations and more common on commercial projects.

    Physical Rhizome Barrier Installation – Placed around the root structure of the bamboo to prevent spreading beyond those boundaries.

    Herbicides   – Chemical spraying and treating of the infected area. This can be an ongoing treatment to ensure no re-growth.

    Ongoing Observation

    It is very important to monitor the area of the infestation moving forward. Although it may seem as though the problem has been eradicated, bamboo is incredibly sturdy and re-growth can occur if even the tiniest fragment of rhizome has been left behind.

    Contacted James and cleared age knotweed very last minute due to a poor solicitor firm. James arranged a visit and was put in no time at all to put me at ease, the buyers at ease and took away all the stress. Cannot recommend highly enough ..

    We needed a knotweed management plan arranged asap for a property, spoke to James over the phone and he was able to come out for a survey the next day. He produced a plan quickly and efficiently which we really appreciated! Very knowledgable. Would highly recommend. Great local company!

    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.
