Welcome to Elcot Environmental

the UK’s Leading Japanese Knotweed Removal Specialists - Since 1982

About Us

Elcot Environmental was founded in 1963 and we now have a proud 55 year background in landscape contracting and weed control. We have been managing Japanese Knotweed for over 35 years - specialising since the mid 90's - and have unrivaled experience of managing Knotweed issues for clients on development sites.

Throughout all of this experience we have been unable to find a "fire and forget" mysterious secret treatment which we can guarantee will totally eradicate Japanese Knotweed on any site in the short term.

We have, however, developed methods and systems based on attention to detail and a combination of controls available which are proven to work. We also have a total commitment to complete long term Japanese Knotweed eradication on every site.

We are able to offer our clients a complete assessment of all Knotweed issues relating to a site, providing fixed price options. This will enable construction programs to be maintained and will include costs of all residual risks, including Japanese Knotweed not within the site boundaries but adjoining.

We have been providing Japanese Knotweed packages for a number of years and have assisted vendors of development land by establishing a true management cost of Knotweed, occasionally being novated to the purchaser to complete the package.

The majority of our clients are regulars from the top 100 U.K. Construction Companies.

Our Vision

"To do and to be the best, and by that practice, to be now, and in the future, the most trusted Knotweed Management Company in the UK"

"To gain and maintain the confidence of all those we have to do with."

"To be the clients first choice for Japanese Knotweed Management, and for a client to never regret that choice."

Our Values

  • Integrity above all (cost what it may).
  • Truthful (if you tell the truth you do not have to remember what you said).
  • Enthusiastic (everything goes better if you are).
  • Professional (do it right first time so that it doesn't have to be done again).
  • But honest about our failings (and putting them right).
  • Respect for humanity (because we are all human).

Our Commitment

  • Always see the job through.
  • Consistently achieve or exceed documented accreditation standards in health & safety, quality and environment.
  • Maintain confidentiality & trust based on our core values.
  • Provide our customers with appropriate and comprehensive management contracts based on our in-depth understanding & knowledge of Japanese Knotweed and other Invasive Plant Species.
  • To price  the whole contract openly and to specifically inform the client of any cost not included.
