    About Bamboo

    Actually a giant grass in the subfamily Bambusoideae of the grass family Poaceae, bamboo is an incredibly hardy and sturdy plant that has grown very popular as a good looking, ornamental addition to all kinds of garden and landscaped settings.

    It’s fast growing and spreading nature and it’s over 1,400 varieties mean it can quickly and easily fill out any space.

    Originally imported from China, India and Japan amongst others it has rapidly become popular throughout the UK and indeed worldwide.

    Issues With Bamboo

    The world’s fastest growing land plant, problems tend to arise with bamboo exactly because of it’s incredibly quick but also aggressive and invasive nature.

    Depending on the type of bamboo, hard surfaces nearby can be at risk, even stone and brickwork if the bamboo spreads uncontrollably beyond it’s intended barriers.

    Bamboo has an incredibly strong root structure, and not unlike Japanese Knotweed it’s rhizomes can quickly overtake and out compete plants from the local eco system.

    It can become a legal issue if your bamboo infiltrates surrounding gardens so it is always best to get the problem treated early rather than enabling the spread to continue.

    Bamboo Treatment & Removal 

    There are different bamboo treatment methods available depending on the type of the bamboo and the severity of the spread and infestation.

    The most important thing to remember is that bamboo can re-grow quickly if even the tiniest fragment of rhizome ( root ) is left behind so it is vital to ensure a thorough and complete treatment.

    Even when it seems that all the canes and foliage have been removed it is the underground rhizome network that needs to be thoroughly removed and this often extends beyond the visible plant.

    Common Bamboo Treatment and Removal Methods Include :

    Manual Cutting & Pruning Of the Canes

    Manual or Mechanical Digging Out/Excavation Of the Roots 

    Physical / Rhizome Barriers

    Herbicides & Chemical Treatments

    Further Monitoring

    Further monitoring of the area that the bamboo has been removed from is crucial because of the sturdy and durable nature of the roots and the ability to re grow from even the smallest left over fragment. If it seems that the bamboo is beginning to regrow, further treatment and removal will be necessary.

    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.
