Japanese Knotweed Survey FAQs

How much does a Japanese knotweed survey cost?

Our basic knotweed survey costs nothing at all - we provide this service free of charge. If we do find Japanese knotweed on your property, we will provide a no-obligation quote for a suitable treatment plan.

We can also provide a comprehensive Japanese knotweed survey, which costs £250 plus VAT. The comprehensive survey includes a specialist report and a Japanese knotweed management plan (JKMP).

What does the free Japanese knotweed survey include?

A trained Japanese knotweed specialist will visit your property and check:
  • Whether Japanese knotweed is present on your property
  • Where the knotweed is located
  • The extent of the knotweed infestation
After completing our survey, we will provide a brief report and recommend a suitable treatment plan (if knotweed was found).

Why book a knotweed survey?

If you suspect that Japanese knotweed is present on your property, it’s a good idea to arrange a knotweed survey as soon as possible. Japanese knotweed is an invasive plant that grows very quickly and may take over your garden if left untreated.

While there is no law against growing Japanese knotweed on your own property, you may be prosecuted if you allow it to spread into the wild, and your neighbours can take legal action if the plant encroaches on their land. So we recommend booking a knotweed survey ASAP if you have reason to believe there is Japanese knotweed in your garden.

What will happen if Japanese knotweed is found on my property?

If we do find Japanese knotweed during our survey, we’ll report it to you and recommend a suitable course of action. We will provide a quote for our Japanese knotweed control services, but it’s up to you what you do next.

Bear in mind there are many plants that look similar to Japanese knotweed. We often hear from homeowners who are in a state of panic because they believe they’ve found knotweed in the garden, and on closer inspection, it turns out to be a different plant entirely.

So don’t stress yourself out - contact Japanese Knotweed Removal today and book a free knotweed survey to put your mind at ease!
