Rhizomes- destroy them to kill Japanese knotweeds

Postby Samuel Fehr » Wed Dec 08, 2010 5:42 am

You cannot expect immediate results from digging up and bagging the Japanese knotweed rhizomes. Even if you take maximum care in implementing this tactic, it is possible that some of the rhizome roots will snap off. The plant is so powerful that even from the tiniest root of Japanese knotweed left in the ground, a new plant will eventually emerge. But anyway, since this is a long term war, you need to be vigilant for a long term. And the rhizomes are the place where the plant keeps the nourishment that your enemy requires to fight you most vigorously. Rhizomes should be considered as fortresses. It is clear that although the soldiers of Japanese knotweed will fan out and hide after these fortresses have been destroyed; the loss of the fortress makes their long term success much more difficult. You should not do the cutting tactic alone in order to eradicate the weed. Why experts suggest digging up the woody clumps of Japanese knotweed is to prepare the ground for the laying of tarps. By doing this you could make sure that the tarps will not get damaged.

Even if you try to trim the old canes very much close to the clumps, it is possible that the sharp edges will protrude through the soil from these clumps. And no doubt, these sharp edges will damage tour tarp. Therefore in order to get a smooth surface you may dog up the bigger clumps and lay the tarp afterwards. During building inspections Sydney inspection experts suggest to prepare the ground before laying the tarp.
