Japanese knotweed is prone to quick and aggressive spreading if left untreated. Our Japanese knotweed root barrier systems are a great alternative to chemical treatments and will help to stop the invasive species from further spreading into neighbouring gardens or onto neighbouring commercial sites.
If invasive Japanese knotweed does spread from your land onto neighbouring property, you could face legal proceedings from the landowners. Therefore, you have a legal obligation and responsibility to prevent any suspected knotweed infestation from spreading, whether that’s into neighbours’ gardens or surrounding land at a commercial property. Our Japanese knotweed root barriers are a cost-effective, efficient solution that can stop the pervasive spread of this plant.
The Japanese knotweed root barrier works by halting the spread of knotweeds’ root systems (also known as rhizomes) from spreading into the surrounding soil. The roots do not grow much deeper than 2 metres, so by installing an impenetrable barrier from the surface down to 3 metres deep, means the roots cannot pass beneath the barrier. The Japanese knotweed root barrier is installed at an angle of 45º so any growth from outside the barrier will be diverted downwards rather than punching through it.
If you suspect a Japanese knotweed problem and require expert removal, it’s advisable to get expert help to ensure all fragments of the plant are removed from your property.
Preventing the spread of invasive plants like Japanese knotweed, our root barrier treatments can help protect residential properties as much as they support commercial projects.
If you suspect an infestation, you should act immediately by seeking out professional help before it grows across neighbouring properties, or adds costly delays to your commercial project.
A root barrier is a preventative measure only, designed to halt the spread of Japanese knotweed rather than to eradicate the species altogether.
Root barriers are unlike other chemical and physical treatment options that we can offer, in that they are a preventative device used within residential or commercial sites. This is an ideal option if complete eradication is not possible due to financial or other reasons. If the land owner would, however, like to completely eradicate Japanese knotweed then we would recommend our herbicide treatment.

Here at Japanese knotweed Specialists, we supply root barriers with or without our installation service. Barrier installation will require access to a digger to excavate soil around the infestation, at which point a barrier can be fitted.
