    Bamboo History

    One of the most versatile plants in the world, Bamboo was originally imported to the UK from China, India and Japan with the first arrivals being the tropical varieties of bamboo stored in hot houses.

    Other varieties quickly became popular due to the mixed range of species and heights with there actually being over 1,000 different variants of bamboo, suitable for any type of garden or landscape.

    Bamboo can grow incredibly rapidly making it a quick and easy way to populate a garden with a hardy and robust ( and good looking ) plant.

    As member of the grass family, bamboo can grow and re-grow very quickly and has even been called “the fastest growing plant in he world” with some species being recorded at growing 1 metre in 24 hours.

    What Are The Problems with Bamboo ?

    Although generally a pleasant looking addition to any garden, problems arise with bamboo due to it’s aforementioned quick growing and spreading nature which also applies to it’s root structure ( rhizome ) network.

    Similar to Japanese Knotweed in how it spreads, unless it is kept under control bamboo can quickly become a problem for surrounding driveways, patio’s and even neighbouring properties as the shoots can pop up anywhere and are incredibly sturdy and aggressive.

    An extremely resilient plant, Bamboo can also survive and thrive in poor quality soils and can outcompete surrounding plant species making it a potential problem for local eco-systems.

    As there are so many different varieties it is important to identify which type of bamboo you have on the property and they normally fall into two main categories.

    Clumping Bamboo – These tend to be less invasive and can normally be identified by their large root balls and the bamboo being closely clumped together.

    Running Bamboo –  Generally the more problematic and invasive, characterised by their long, quick spreading rhizomes ( roots ).

    If in doubt, it is best to get a professional survey done before starting any course of treatment or removal as treatments can vary according to the type of bamboo you have present.

    Removing Bamboo 

    In common with most invasive weed removal treatments, bamboo removal methods will vary depending on the nature, size and scope and of the problem.

    Bamboo removal methods can include :

    Manual Removal – Digging out the entire root network as thoroughly as possible, including any fragments no matter how small.

    Mechanical Excavation – Generally for larger bamboo infestations, again it is important to identify and remove even the smallest rhizome fragments to ensure the bamboo does not take root and re-grow.

    Rhizome Barriers – Physical barriers can be installed into the ground surrounding the bamboo to stop the root network from spreading beyond the barrier.

    Chemical / Herbicide Treatments – Multiple applications may be required over the years with a glyphosate weed killer proving popular.

    Ongoing Monitoring Of The Infected Area

    After successful treatment and removal of the bamboo it is important to constantly monitor the infected area for any signs of any rhizomes having been left behind and re-growth of the bamboo.

    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.
