Most homeowners will have heard of Japanese Knotweed and Japanese Knotweed removal, but many are unaware that there are other invasive plants to look out for. In fact, in the UK, there are a lot of other invasive plant species. Invasive plants can be found in almost all outdoor environments, which is why they’re a common problem for those with gardens and outdoor spaces. Here’s what you need to know about these plants and their removal:

What Are Invasive Plants?

Invasive plants are those that have become a pest in their environment. They are a kind of pest, similar to a weed, as they appear in places they shouldn’t be. This means they can, and do, cause serious damage to the environment they’re in. There are a number of invasive plants that can crop up in the UK, many of which can cause serious damage to its surroundings. These include Japanese Knotweed, Buddleia, Himalayan Balsam, Ragwort and Giant Hogweed.

Why Do Invasive Plants Need To Be Removed?

They are extremely difficult to control and it doesn’t take long before they dominate large areas. As they are aggressive and are able to spread with ease, regardless of their surroundings, they will not disappear on their own and they rarely die out. Though at first sight an invasive plant may appear to be doing little harm, they can cause big problems to the ecosystem and they often displace other plants. This means that if you have a beautiful garden or plants, invasive plants can destroy them. It is because of this that they need to be removed by a team of professionals.
