We have worked in many gardens, grounds and woodlands where invasive weeds have become a major problem. With our experience, knowledge of the industry and qualifications, we can eliminate these problematic weeds from your property. Legislation on invasive weeds is changing and it is becoming a more serious issue for land owners. It is important for people to realise the difficulty and dangers that these weeds can cause. We are qualified to control these weeds with chemicals on small and large scale, both on land and in and around water.
We successfully control the following invasive species
