WB Design & Construction offer a wide range of weed control services, please see the various sections below for further details on the range of weed control services we offer .

Control of invasive weed species

Invasive weed species cost the UK economy millions of pounds to deal with each year, dealing with Japanese knotweed alone costs the UK economy in excess of £152 million per year.

Dealing with invasive species needs a systematic approach and a detailed plan to ensure that the infestation is effectively controlled and the costs are kept to a minimum. Treatment and monitoring needs to be continued for a number of years, dependent on the species to ensure total control.

We are able to prepare a plan, apply for any necessary licences and carry out the treatment and monitoring to ensure control of a infestation.

Invasive species we can control include:

– Japanese Knotweed
– Giant Hogweed
– Himalayan Balsam
– Rhododendron Ponticum
– New Zealand Pigmyweed

Dependant on the infestation, its location, situation, density and various other factors we have a range of options available including stem injection, floor application through both spraying and weed wiping and stump treatment. Different treatments may be used at different stages of the process to successfully combat the infestation.

Other treatments may include excavation, mechanical removal and installation of weed proof membranes.

Often invasive species are found in difficult to access areas including along water courses and on steep ground. We have both the skills, experience and equipment to deal with invasive species in both situation including along sections of white water with no access from the bank.

– Spear Thistle
– Creeping or Field Thistle
– Broad-Leaved Dock
