Dig, sift and burial

Infested soil is sifted on-site and roots buried or removed to landfill. Clean topsoil can be reused.

Regrowth is prevented through a four-year spraying programme or installation of a root barrier.

Burial

Japanese knotweed is relocated, space allowing, buried on-site and overlayed with a root barrier. Sealing with clean sub/topsoil prevents re-infestation.

Excavation
