    An incredibly strong, resilient and fast spreading plant, not many people know that bamboo is actually a grass in the Poaceae family that was first imported as an ornamental plant to the UK in the 1800’s.

    It quickly grew in popularity due to it’s hardy nature and ability to quickly populate any environment it was introduced into from smaller gardens to large landscapes.

    A native of Asia there are actually over 1,400 different varieties of bamboo which can grow and spread in different ways so it is always important to firstly identify the exact type of bamboo you have present on your property.

    Bamboo Problems and Issues

    Called “the fastest growing plant in the world” and “the next Japanese Knotweed” problems with bamboo tend to arise because of the plants sturdy, resilient and fast spreading nature.

    Bamboo can spread incredibly aggressively beyond it’s intended boundaries and shoots can sprout up and push through concrete foundations, driveways and patios, including those belonging to neighbouring properties.

    Bamboo has a very strong rhizome network ( root structure ) and certain types of bamboo particularly the “running” varieties can be very invasive to surrounding areas and properties.

    Removing Bamboo

    The best type of treatment removal method will normally depend on the variety of bamboo present and the nature and severity of the infestation.

    It is important to note that when it comes to bamboo treatment and removal the job must be conducted incredibly thoroughly as re-growth can occur from the slightest fragment of rhizome if left behind in the soil.

    Some Of The Most Common Bamboo Treatment and Removal Methods Include :

    Manual Cutting & Pruning – this is generally for the above ground and visible canes which will not remove the root structure beneath the soil.

    Manual or Mechanical Digging Out/Excavation Of the Roots – depending on the size and severity of the infected area. Manual removal may be possible for smaller infestations with mechanical excavation needed for larger spreads.

    Physical / Rhizome Barriers – inserted around the roots to prevent them spreading.

    Herbicides  / Chemical Treatments – can be effective in treating and controlling bamboo. Generally multiple treatments will be applied over a few years.

    Further Monitoring Of the Infected Area.

    Again, ongoing monitor of the treated area is vital to ensure no rhizome fragments have been left behind and no re-growth is occuring.

    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.
