    History Of Bamboo In The UK

    Believed to be initially a native of Asia bamboo now grows naturally in numerous tropical climates around the world.

    It has also been imported to non-native countries with reports of bamboo first being introduced to the UK in the 1800’s as a resilient and beautiful ornamental plant.

    It’s ability to quickly grow and populate a garden or landscape has made it extremely popular with some varieties of bamboo documented at growing at one and a half inches in an hour.

    Bamboo is actually a grass in the Bambusoideae subfamily of the evergreen grass family Poaceae (Gramineae) with certain varieties able to grow into actual forests.

    With over 1400 varieties of bamboo documented there is wide diversity between the different bamboos which is why it is so important to first identify the type of bamboo you may be having issues with before beginning any treatment.

    Problems With Bamboo

    Bamboo’s extremely fast spreading and resilient nature makes it both a desirable and good looking ornamental plant but can also create problems when it spreads beyond it’s boundaries.

    It can very aggressive and invasive, both to surrounding eco systems which it can quickly outcompete and to surrounding areas such as patio’s and driveways. Even foundations can be effected both on the property that bamboo is discovered on and surrounding properties as it can quickly spread beyond it’s desired boundaries.

    It has an incredible sturdy and fast spreading rhizome network ( root structure ) that can mean shoots sprouting up through surrounding concrete structures, especially if cracks are present.

    Most bamboos can generally be divided into two main categories :

    Clumping Bamboo : Generally the tamer and easier to deal with as their short root structures do not generally expand too far from the original plant, normally in easy to recognise clumps.

    Running Bamboo : The more problematic type of bamboo on the whole as it’s invasive and quick spreading roots can spread far from the original plant and penetrate surrounding properties.

    Again, it is a vital first step to identify the exact variety and nature of the bamboo you may have present before any treatment and removal is begun.

    Bamboo Treatment & Removal Methods

    With over 1400 documented varieties of bamboo, treatment and removal methods can vary depending on the exact type of bamboo and the size and scope of the infected area.

    Once the variety of bamboo is identified there are a few different treatment options again depending on the exact characteristics of the spread.

    These can include :

    Manual Removal – Mowing, cutting or pruning of the bamboo. Removing the visible above ground canes is the first step before the removal of the root structure.

    Mechanical Bamboo Excavation – For larger infestations it may be necessary for mechanical excavations depending on the size and scope.

    Physical / Rhizome Barrier Installation – Barriers are inserted into the ground to physically prevent the roots from spreading out around them.

    Herbicide Treatment – Chemical treatments can be undertaken ensuring there is no spill over and damage to surrounding plants.

    Ongoing Observation

    The most important part of any bamboo removal treatment is the ongoing surveillance of the area the bamboo has been removed from.

    Bamboo is incredible sturdy and resilient and growth can re-occur if even the smallest fragment of root structure ( rhizome ) is left behind.

    if this occurs then the sooner this can be detected and acted upon the better.

    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.
