Japanese Knotweed is Britain’s biggest problem when it comes to non-native plants, with serious problems of bio diversity, out-competing our native flora and potentially damaging structure, buildings and drains. The plant spreads easily across Devon via Rhizomes and cut stems or the Japanese knotweed Crowns.

Japanese Knotweed occurs in most parts of Devon and can be found in gardens, road verges, river banks and waste ground.
Southwest Knotweed has many Contracts in Devon, working with homeowners and businesses, in all areas, including Plymouth, Exeter, Barnstaple, Exmouth, Torbay, Bideford. On a daily basis we have Devon homeowners contacting us when they are trying to buy or sell their house. This is generally after being informed that Japanese Knotweed has been identified and their Mortgage Company has requested a professional Japanese Knotweed Survey, from a company who is PCA (property Care Association) registered and who can provide the necessary Insurance Backed Guarantees, to allow the process to move forward.
Southwest Knotweed will initially survey your property in Devon, to assess the scale of the problem and any associated risks. Southwest Knotweed would then create a mortgage compliant report with a management plan moving forward. Normally, we will not need to implement the removal of Japanese Knotweed at your location in Devon, as this can be very costly. Southwest knotweed would normally treat the Japanese Knotweed with a Chemical Treatment programme over 3 years, with a further monitoring period and Insurance Backed Guarantee.
