Japanese Knotweed Treatment & Disposal
Ravenhill Rugby Ground
ATG were engaged to eradicate an extensive Japanese Knotweed (JKW) infestation at the Ravenhill Rugby Ground. The JKW was causing project delays and threatened to prevent the client from meeting their deadlines. ATG were tasked to provide a cost and time effective solution.
ATG implemented the ‘Eraginate’ treatment process to effectively deal with the JKW on site.
The first operation was to remove all JKW aboveground vegetation and dispose of it to a suitably licensed facility.
A controlled excavation was carried out to remove all JKW impacted material and all visible rhizomes were manually picked and disposed of at a suitably licensed facility.
A specialist supervisor determined the extent of the excavation to ensure all affected material was removed.
Mechanical screening and chemical treatment of the excavated material was carried out. This process eradicated any remaining rhizomes and rendered the soil sterile, unable to support growth.
ATG completed the process ahead of schedule and handed the client back a JKW free site.
Cost-effective solution saving the client in excess of £100,000
