The Environment Agency states that ‘Japanese Knotweed is the most invasive species of plant in Britain’. So when Soils and Stone was asked to remove several loads of Japanese Knotweed, we had to make sure we followed all the right procedures.
‘Japanese Knotweed has to be dealt with properly with strict adherence to the correct EA guidelines’ says Ozzy Cecil, Director at Soils and Stone. ‘Not only did we have to ensure we followed them to the letter, the location of the Knotweed infestation meant a major route into London had to be closed, the material removed and Topsoil imported. The project specified that to prevent any impact on the morning rush hour all the work had to be completed within a very tight time frame during the early hours of one morning.’ continues Ozzy. Happily, within a couple of hours the job was completed and the road reopened ready of the morning rush.
