    Bamboo in the UK

    A native of Asia, bamboo was originally imported to the UK as far back as the late 1700’s and has since found great popularity as a good looking and sturdy ornamental plant.

    With over 1400 documented varieties of bamboo, it’s versatility means that there can normally be a perfect species found for any type and size of garden or landscaped setting.

    Bamboo can grow incredibly quickly and has even been called “the fastest growing plant in the world” even though it is actually a member of the grass family.

    Problems with Bamboo 

    The main problems that arise with bamboo are generally the same features of the plant that make it so desirable, namely it’s resilience and it’s ability to grow quickly.

    It’s strong and invasive root structure means that it can quickly spread beyond it’s boundaries if not kept under control and it has been known to cause damage to driveways, patios as well as encroaching onto and causing damage to neighbouring properties.

    It can also survive and thrive in poor quality soils and outcompete local plant varieties.

    Although there are over 1400 different varieties of bamboo they generally fall into two broad categories and it is important to recognise the type of bamboo you have present as one of the these categories is generally much more invasive and problematic than the other.

    Clumping Bamboo – These varieties of bamboo are generally less problematic and don’t tend to spread too far from the original plant, forming easily identifiable “clumps” nearby.

    Running Bamboo –  Generally the more aggressive and invasive varieties of bamboo, “running” bamboos tend to do exactly that. They spread and run out to surrounding areas through their quick spreading and sturdy rhizome ( root ) network .

    If you are not sure which type of bamboo you may have present it is always best to get a free no-obligation survey to identify the type of bamboo before beginning any treatment or removal.

    Bamboo Removal Methods

    Like with most invasive weeds, treatment and removal methods for bamboo can vary depending on the exact nature of infestation.

    Treatment & Removal Methods can include :

    Manual Bamboo Removal – Manually removing the plant and roots by hand.

    Mechanical Excavation – If the infestation is large enough mechanical excavation can be used to clear the infected area.

    Physical Rhizome Barriers – Barriers can be inserted horizontally surrounding the plants roots to ensure there is no spread beyond them.

    Chemical Treatments – Herbicide treatments can be employed with Glyphosate proving particularly effective.

    Further Monitoring

    Bamboo is incredibly resilient and can start re-growing quickly if even the smallest fragment of rhizome is left behind in the infected soil. It is vital to monitor the area moving forwards to ensure there is no re-growth.

    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.
