Why Do You Need a Japanese Knotweed Survey?

A survey for Japanese knotweed helps to detect the presence and spread of this invasive plant. Its severity will inform the plan of treatment to begin the eradication process.

For commercial sites, such as construction projects, a knotweed survey is best undertaken before any work begins to assess the land proposed for development., and ideally an invasive weed survey is carried out during the purchase process

In residential surveys, whether for mortgage purposes or to determine the presence of knotweed on your land or neighbouring land, a survey will help to determine the spread of knotweed, and what treatment process is likely to be required.

Whatever your reason for booking a Japanese knotweed survey, we can perform one regardless of the season.

What Does a Japanese Knotweed Survey Entail? STEP ONE – Get Free Identification

If you are able to, before you book a survey, take some clear photos of the plant(s) in question, and email them to us, info@jkws.co.uk where we can identify the plant for you. If it is knotweed, we will then advise you to book a survey.

STEP TWO – Book Your Japanese Knotweed Survey

Regardless of why you need a survey, booking one in with our team of expert knotweed surveyors is simple and easy (simply fill in our form at the bottom of this page).

Once your appointment is booked, upon arrival, our team of PCA Qualified Accredited surveyors will inspect your land, as well as any neighbouring land. We aim to complete a thorough inspection, including overgrown areas. If it is winter, before the shoots of knotweed have sprung up, then we can arrange for a dog survey, whose keen noses are able to sniff out knotweed easily.

STEP THREE – Review Your Results

Once we have completed the survey, we will aim to send you your report and Knotweed Management Plan within five working days, depending on the area covered and the extent of the problem.

In our results, we will include a map to show the extent of the problem, along with a scope of where it meets neighbouring land, and other geographical influences.

The results also contain a Knotweed Management Plan with costs of removal, and the proposed timeline of removal.
