Developing on a plot of land with Japanese Knotweed present.

Developing on a plot of land with Japanese Knotweed present.

 

Developing on a plot of land with any invasive weed can be a worrisome experience especially so when Japanese Knotweed is identified.

Here at ECS we have many solutions to deal with Japanese Knotweed that include digging and dumping the infestation to a registered landfill, or burying the plant on-site using our cell burial methodology.

 

In this post we will consider both options which are available to all our clients.

 

Dig & Dump:

 

Due to time constraints, on occasion there is no other option apart from removing the Japanese Knotweed contaminated soil from site and disposing of within a registered landfill. This methodology literally removes all Japanese Knotweed from site thus providing an instant solution to the problem and allowing our clients to start groundworks immediately upon completion.

ECS provide all required machinery and personnel for each project and our in-house trained operatives provide resources to reduce the amount of material going to landfill by up to 60% therefore greatly reducing costs to the client. ECS operatives also control the works directing excavations and loading to ensure all legislations are adhered to and that no cross-site contamination occurs.

 

Cell Burial:

 

Japanese Knotweed onsite burial is a fast, cost effective method of dealing with Japanese Knotweed Infestations and avoids the use of registered landfills.

The constraints to this methodology are site size, water levels and area of development. Within the cell burial programme a pit is dug and lined with a geotextile membrane. All joints within the cell are heat welded closed. The Japanese Knotweed is then excavated under the direction of a highly experienced ECS clerk of works. This is then capped with a cover of geotextile membrane and heat welded closed, thus creating “The Cell”. A cover of soil is then placed on top of the cell to a depth of approximately 2 metres.

 

This solution is perfect for areas of sites that are not to be piled or built on.

 

So, as you can see instant solutions for the eradication of Japanese Knotweed are available allowing you to continue a development project without compromise.
