Dig and dump
The dig and dump method of Japanese Knotweed removal may be the most expensive, and the least sustainable, but it’s still among one of the most preferred ways of removing the invasive plant.
A large part of why it’s such a popular technique is due to the specialist’s ability to minimise the total waste removed from the land, while still removing all of the identified Japanese Knotweed.
Japanese Knotweed is a particularly invasive plant that can overgrow easily and infest an area quickly. The removal process is often long, and it would usually take several growing seasons to removal Japanese Knotweed entirely. With the dig and dump method of Japanese Knotweed removal, the process is much faster.
Before we begin the Japanese Knotweed removal process, we first determine which areas have been contaminated by the plant. To do this, we have the soil tested for Japanese Knotweed material, which we can do on-site using a quick laboratory soil analysis.
This method is largely used on development or construction sites but can be used elsewhere. It involves the full removal of the contaminated soil areas, and any growing Japanese Knotweed. All dig and dump procedures are individually priced, depending on location, contamination, site history, and other measures that need to be taken into account.
