    What Is Bamboo ?

    Bamboo is actually a tall tree like grass originally from Asia, mainly from China and India with records dating back of it’s use over 7,000 years ago.

    It was introduced to the UK and Europe in the late 18th / early 19th century with the tropical varieties of the plant proving popular but originally only suitable to be kept in hothouses.

    The more temperate varieties of bamboo became popular as hardy and good looking ornamental plants suitable for all kinds of garden and landscape settings.

    An extremely quick growing plant, it has even been called the fastest growing plant in the world with certain species documented at growing nearly 3 ft per day.

    The bamboo family is incredibly diverse with over 1400 documented varieties, many with different characteristics, so it is very important to first identify the type of bamboo you may have before beginning any treatment or removal program.

    What Are The Issues ?

    People love bamboo because it grows quickly, looks good and even offers privacy if planted as a screen, but it also can create problems due to it’s extremely invasive and hardy nature.

    It can cause issues as it can actually break through tarmac, spreading and pushing it’s way up through driveways, patios and paving stones. It can also spread and invade neighbouring properties the correct physical boundaries are not in place.

    There are two distinct types of bamboo, Clumping and Running.

    Clumping bamboo is known as Sympodial. It generally has shorter roots ( rhizomes ) that spread out gradually, but stay closer to the original plants, forming in localised clumps.

    Running bamboo is Monopodial. It has roots that extend out horizontally and “run” and it is this tendency to spread quickly and aggressively that means that the “running” type of bamboo is more often than not the most problematic.

    Bamboo Removal Treatments & Methods

    Depending on the size and severity of the infestation some of the most common bamboo removal treatments are :

    Excavation – This can be done manually for smaller infestations and even mechanically for larger scale spreads. The key point is to ensure that all of the root structure is eradicated as even the smallest of fragments left behind can start re-growth.

    Physical / Rhizome Barriers – A physical barrier can be placed underground to keep the roots from spreading beyond the protected area.

    Chemical Treatments  – There are many Herbicides proven to control and remove bamboo, with treatments containing Glyphosate proving particularly popular.

    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.
