    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.

    We can attend meetings or visit site to advise on solutions; helping clients avoid risk, wasted resources and legal liability.

    Training Construction Workers and Professionals 

    We strongly believe in dealing with Japanese Knotweed at preconstruction stage and seek to educate preconstruction teams on how to be more proactive.

      Invasive Weed Solutions Including Japanese Knotweed Excavation, Onsite Solutions, Soil Minimisation and Disposal

       

      • Japanese Knotweed Excavation – We specialise in digging out just enough soil to remove all of the Knotweed root or ‘rhizome’ material, whilst keeping the quantity to deal with onsite as low as possible to minimise the costs.
      • Rhizome Removal / Soil Sifting to Restore Soils –Where there is space onsite for temporary storage or time before building starts, we can process and remove the root or ‘rhizome’ material in combination with herbicide treatments to make the soil usable again.
      • Creating a Japanese Knotweed Cell – We can bury root or ‘rhizome’ materials contained in a purpose designed membrane to create a Japanese Knotweed cell. The cell construction ensures that new growth cannot reach the surface and all materials eventually become unviable.
      • Dispose of Soils to Landfill – Landfill is the most expensive solution but sometimes it can’t be avoided. After minimising the amount of soil produced, we will ensure that your soil is categorised at the least expensive disposal rate whilst complying with waste laws and arrange transportation and disposal to a licensed landfill site.

      5 or 10 year Treatment Plans, Land Clearance, Other Invasive Weeds and Insurance Backed Guarantees

      Sometimes after a project has been built, 5 or 10 year Japanese Knotweed treatment programmes can be put in place to give peace of mind to buyers and tenants, especially where infested soil has been kept onsite to be processed, treated and used again..

      Single Herbicide Applications

      Some customers prefer to work on a ‘pay by spray’ basis. Whilst a single treatment is unlikely to eradicate a Japanese Knotweed infestation, it will knock the infestation back somewhat and can show a contractor has fulfilled their responsibility whilst in control of a site.

      Land Clearance

      At Clearsafe Knotweed, we provide specialised land clearance, including tree works around Japanese Knotweed infestations to ensure that the infestation is not spread leading to increased costs and legal liability.

      Treatment for all Other Invasive Weed Species

      Whilst we deal with a majority of Knotweed, we are increasingly dealing with other invasive weeds such as Giant Hogweed, Himalayan Balsam, Bamboo, Horsetail (Mare’s Tail) and many others; please give us a call to discuss any invasive weed issues.

      *The Insurance Backed Guarantee (IBG) is a third-party product required by mortgage companies so that if the contractor becomes insolvent the infestation will still be treated. We can issue IBGs through our full membership of the Property Care Association (PCA).*
