Japanese Knotweed - The Facts

Japanese Knotweed is a tenacious plant species that grows vigorously at a rate of up to a metre a month. It's roots, or rhizomes, can spread up to 7 metres horizontally, even through tarmac and concrete, causing damage to foundations and buildings and it is estimated to cost the British economy £166 million annually.

"...indisputably the UK's most aggressive, destructive and invasive plant."

The Environment Agency

Landowners in the UK are under a statutory duty to be proactive in the control and remediation of Japanese Knotweed. However tempting it may be to tackle this problem yourself, due to the ease by which Japanese Knotweed can spread when handled improperly all parts of the plant and any soil contaminated with it are classified as controlled waste and must be removed and disposed of by a licensed waste control operator.

While it is not an offence for Japanese knotweed to be present on your land allowing it to encroach onto neighbours property could constitute a private nuisance under common law. A neighbour affected by knotweed growth from your property may be able to apply to court for an injunction requiring you to take action to abate the nuisance. Such a claim could include a sum of money in damages to reflect the cost of any physical damage to the property and/or the diminution in value of the landowner's property as a result of the nuisance.
