The LK Group was commissioned by Birmingham City Council to excavate, control and eradicate residual regrowth of Japanese knotweed at a site in Cadine Gardens.
Birmingham City Council
Japanese knotweed remediation
Cadine Gardens, Moseley, Birmingham
Our solution was a multi-step process that involved excavation, root barrier installation, backfilling with uncontaminated soil, and ongoing monitoring and treatment.The LK Group carried out a full excavation of the heavily infested soils. This was followed by the installation of a geotextile root barrier membrane. The backfill of uncontaminated soil completed the process and the site will be monitored for four years under our herbicide and treatment programme.
By using a multi-step process which included complete surveying, excavation and eradication service, The LK Group was able to deliver a holistic service to Birmingham City Council that not only dealt with the Japanese knotweed that had been identified on the main site but also identified and eradicated the infestation on an adjacent site, that would have otherwise continued to spread. This is a significant achievement, given the challenges involved in controlling this highly invasive species.
