    What is Bamboo?

    Bamboos are a diverse group of grasses belonging to the subfamily Bambusoidea of the grass family Poaceae. Most noticeable in the mid summer they are an evergreen perennial flowering plant that come in many sizes depending on the type of bamboo with certain species of Giant Bamboo able to reach a height up to 30 metres.

    Bamboo is quite a desirable plant to have, usually used as a screen to obscure eyesores like septic tanks, fuel tanks and are often cultivated into boundary markers and hedgerows. They can be a welcome and pleasant addition to your garden .

    It is also extremely versatile and has many uses, from furniture to flooring and items of clothing to towels.

    So, What’s The Problem?

    The problem in garden and landscape settings is that some species of bamboo can be extremely quick growing and can spread rapidly, with some species having been documented to grow up to 90cm vertically per day and 6 metres horizontally a year.

    Running Bamboo

    Running bamboo spreads from an underground rhizome which can grow in any direction and up to as much as six metres in length horizontally a year. New bamboo shoots will then grow through the surface at intervals along the length of that rhizome to form the bamboo culms (poles). Running bamboo then send off further rhizomes, again spreading up to 6 metres in any direction beyond the original plant – producing the running bamboo grove. It is this type of bamboo that is the most common source of neighbour disputes where encroachment from one property to adjoining properties has occurred.

    Clumping Bamboo

    This type of bamboo is generally considered the tamer and easier to manage however can also become a problem if left unchecked. It does not tend to spread as quickly and aggressively as its running cousin. These types of Bamboo do not spread in the same way. They produce short, individual rhizomes that grow out of the soil and up into individual culms (bamboo poles), forming a round ‘clump’ of culms. These bamboo shoots are very shallow and near the surface, and can only produce one culm per rhizome, not like a running bamboo that spreads everywhere. Clumping bamboo cannot physically run and will generally remain in the clump where you plant the original bamboo.

    Bamboo Removal Methods

    There are different methods for removing bamboo depending on the size and severity of the spread as well as the environmental conditions specific to the area.

    These include :

    Cutting and Pruning

    Digging Out/Excavation

    Root barrier installation

    Chemical Control

    Regular Monitoring

    All of the methods above rely on regular monitoring from the property/landowner, sometimes for as much as 2 years.

    Bamboo is hardy and resilient and can resprout easily from a few small pieces of rhizome. Less so with the tamer “clumping” variety of bamboo, but it is still important to keep an eye and regularly monitor the treated area for any signs of plants regrowing as these should be immediately removed.

    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.
