phs Greenleaf provides swift, professional services to tackle the problems caused by non-native and highly invasive plants in your grounds or gardens. There are several species of invasive plants that can take a firm grip of your landscape, affecting not just its visual appeal but also the proper growth of the plants that you want to thrive. These fast-growing weeds can also destabilise soil and structures in your garden and business grounds. There are varieties of non-indigenous and invasive plants that are harmful to humans too, making it even more vital to deal with them promptly. Did you know that some varieties of plants can decrease the likelihood of getting a mortgage for your property, making it harder for you to sell your home or business premises? Further frustration can come from the fact that these insidious and fast-spreading ‘uninvited guests’ can be hard to get rid of, once and for all.Request a brochure
How can phs Greenleaf use its plant insights and specialist skills when you’re seeking solutions to invasive weeds?
phs Greenleaf offers a comprehensive service to tackle the intrusion and rapid growth of plants that are unpleasant or hazardous. We remove them safely and decisively, for a clear and accountable fee. This includes the assessment, treatment and removal of Giant Hogweed, Japanese knotweed and Himalayan Balsam.
The law on tackling invasive weeds: Dealing with these plants yourself – or ignoring their spread - carries serious risks, including non-compliance with relevant legal requirements. There is currently no statutory right covering the removal of Himalayan Balsam, Giant Hogweed and Japanese knotweed. However, it is an offence to deliberately spread these dominant weeds in the wild under The Wildlife and Countryside Act (1981). Also, both Giant Hogweed and Japanese Knotweed are a Controlled Waste substance and must be disposed of in a licensed landfill site.

Emma was lovely, very helpful and dealt with my query in a professional and efficient manner, even apologising for not being available on my initial call, as I had to leave a voicemail, but she got back to me within minutes. Very impressed.
Our artificial flowers look great around our head offices. The oriental spring range is definitely my favourite and I look forward to receiving our next range.
Our plants are a great addition to our pubs and brighten them up whilst keeping with our pub theme. We are extremely impressed with the quality of the products and the service. Thank you for making it an easy stress free process.
