Finding a tradesman for invasive weed control

While certain foreign plant species have benefitted our ecosystem, others can quickly go out of control, forcing out their competitors and turning even the most well kept garden into an unkempt mess. In other words, it is important to get rid of invasive weeds before they can become a problem!
Because of how difficult it can be to remove many of these species, and because of the damage that they can do, invasive weed control should always be handled by a specialist. As well as having the experience, knowledge and tools to remove your problem, they will also be able to help prevent the weeds from returning.
With invasive weed control, you cannot afford to make a mistake with who you hire, or your problem will only get worse (not to mention more expensive to fix). Luckily, you can find your ideal Pro in no time at all through Plentific. Some of the best invasive weed control specialists in your local area will be in touch to offer quotes once you post your job. Each will also have their own Plentific profile, where you can easily compare their qualifications and customer reviews. Best of all, each and every job booked via Plentific will be covered by the Plentific Guarantee.

What do you need to know about invasive weed control?

If the only weeds that you’ve ever had to deal with are dandelions, you might find it surprising to know that certain species can undermine your property’s structural integrity! Species like Japanese Knotweed are so potentially dangerous for a property that they can prevent homeowners from getting planning permission for their properties. Worse yet, they are hardy survivors: even if you pull the weeds out of the ground, their roots will often remain, allowing them to return with a vengeance later on.

An invasive weed control service will begin with an assessment which will identify your weeds and the size of your infestation. Depending on the results, the weed control could involve different types of herbicidal treatment, or even outright excavation. Most companies will then dispose of the waste at an off-site facility. If this does not sound too complicated, then you are underestimating the problem. The strength of the herbicides used to tackle these weeds can be highly dangerous if used incorrectly, and specialists need to be constantly aware of dangers such as water pollution. As for the excavating, to give you a clue, the roots of a Japanese Knotweed plant can grow 3m deep, and the plant itself can sprout up through Tarmac and even solid concrete! So, if you thought that you could tackle these weeds with standard equipment and elbow grease, then i’m afraid you have another thing coming.

The costs of invasive weed control will depend entirely on the size and nature of your infestation: which weeds are present? How many are there that need to be removed? Which methods will need to be used to remove them? Because of this, it can be difficult to nail down an ‘average’ cost for invasive weed control.

Having said that, you should not be expected to pay for treatments which you don’t need. Once you are given a quote, be sure to ask for a price breakdown, and do not worry about taking the time to compare your options. The more quotes you have to choose from, the better idea of an average cost you will have.
