Japanese Knotweed Barriers

Japanese Knotweed Barriers

EvansEnviron recognise that Japanese Knotweed is the most invasive plant known in Britain today and specialised barriers are needed to control them.

There invasive root system and strong growth can damage foundations, buildings, flood defences, roads, retaining walls, architectural sites, as well as paving and tarmac areas. It can also reduce the capacity of channels in flood defences to carry water, making it a very serious issue.

When Japanese knotweed takes hold it can cause an unbelievable amount of devastation which can cost the building or land over tens of thousands pounds. It is very important that Japanese knotweed barriers are installed to prevent such a problem escalating.

This problem over the years has been overlooked by people who either not aware of the threat of Japanese Knotweed or didn’t think it posed much risk. Japanese Knotweed root barriers are built as a preventive measure to stop the plant from spreading on to nearby properties which will cause damage and potential legal issues.

Why Use EvansEnviron?

EvansEnviron use specialist membranes and root barriers that are a controlled and effective method of preventing knotweed growing up into sub-bases, or as an ‘in-situ capping’ operation, this can be done by installing the membranes horizontally.

Root barrier membranes are only as efficient as the way it has been originally installed. So it is very important only highly trained staff under expert supervision are on hand to supervise during the installation process.

This removes a serious threat to construction where it can have devastating consequences damaging foundations, drains and other underground services.
