The presence of noxious weeds and invasive plants can reduce the visual appeal of your site and damage the way your business or organisation is perceived. Not only do they look unsightly, but they can also hamper the healthy growth of other plants and flowers. If they’re left unchecked, weeds and invasive plants will become an ever-growing problem, which is why professional weed control, prevention and removal is essential.
In the UK, we have a big problem with weeds and invasive species. A noxious weed, also known as a harmful weed or injurious weed is a weed that has been designated by an agricultural or other governing authority as a plant that is harmful to agricultural crops, horticultural crops, natural resources, natural habitats, ecosystems, humans and livestock.
An invasive plant species is a species that is non-native to a specific location, which can spread rapidly, destroying the environment and human health in the process. The top invasive species in the UK include Giant Hogweed, Japanese Knotweed, Himalayan Balsam, Horsetail, Himalayan Knotweed, Hedge Bindweed, Common Ragwort, Hairy Bittercress and Rhododendron Ponticum.
All invasive weeds that are listed under Schedule 9 of The Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 must be dealt with professionally, but there are also many other nuisance species which can be just as problematic and costly to remove.
At Countrywide, there are 100s of different types of weed our highly trained, locally based experts can deal with cost-effectively and efficiently. As they live and work in the local community, they know the best strategies to remove and prevent the weeds in the area.
