Knotweed, otherwise known as Fallopia Japonica, is a type of plant that is listed as one of the world's worst invasive species. An invasive species has a serious impact on biological diversity and human activities. This is why anyone who has the weed growing near their property will want to get it removed as quickly as possible.
Knotweed is a dangerous plant that can grow through a number of strong surfaces such as concrete flags, block paving and tarmacadam. Knotweed can even damage buildings too especially if it has been left to grow for a number of years. The plant can grow through cavity walls which could cause even more damage to your home or workplace. Since the unwanted plant can also damage boundary walls, they could end up falling over if the knotweed is not treated as quickly as possible.
Although knotweed cannot grow through concrete, it will take advantage of any cracks in the surface and grow through - potentially causing more damage to the surfacing.

The Japanese Knotweed plant species (fallopia Japonica) is native to Japan, Korea, and parts of East Asia and China. It was brought to the United Kingdom by the German-born botanist Philipp von Siebold in the year 1850, riding the wave of popularity that was sweeping Victorian Britain to collect and research plants from all over the world.
Japanese knotweed flowers and foliage were once admired for their attractiveness, so much so that the Society of Agriculture and Horticulture in Utrecht called it "the most fascinating new ornamental plant of the year" in 1847.
Japanese Knotweed is not native to Europe, and it was introduced to the United Kingdom without natural enemies. However, Knotweed does impact ecosystems by crowding out native vegetation and reducing the variety of plant and animal organisms.
If you have Japanese knotweed growing near your home, retaining/garden wall, fence, or garden building, the underground roots and rhizomes can cause damage to these structures by exploiting cracks/mortar joints and vulnerabilities. Damage will occur as a result of the pressure exerted by the developing rhizomes.
Glyphosate-based herbicides have shown to be the most successful in combating Japanese knotweed. However, glyphosate is used in various herbicides, some of which are more effective than others for Japanese Knotweed removal.
