THE FAMILY BUSINESS

Pennine Knotweed Removal is a family run business specialising in invasive weeds, specifically Japanese Knotweed. We were previously known as Pennine Weed Expert and Pennine Lawn Care – which is still running as the lawn care side to the business. Being a family run business, there’s not automated call menu’s, there’s real people on the other end of the phone who have dealt with your case from start to finish and we pride ourselves on the level of customer care we provide.We’ve dealt with 100’s of cases of Japanese Knotweed and other invasive species or suspected infestations.

Owned by Richard Hobday (NPTC Qualified) and co-managed by Charlie McGougan (BA (Hons)), Pennine Knotweed Removal has been built upon the passion and knowledge both of us have for our fields. Our years of knowledge allow us to manage the spread of these weeds and eradicate them successfully. We are also NPTC trained in 3 separate certificates qualifying us to use pesticides in and around water courses to treat invasive weeds effectively in all situations.

We have years of experience dealing with many varied infestations and it’s the weeds’ nature that allows us to manage these diverse situations by presenting us with new challenges each time we conduct a survey. From 1 stand to 100 and from 1cm to 3 meters high, we’ve controlled the growth of this perilous weed and stopped it in its tracks!

Survey’s with us start from £110 depending upon your location, our average report turnover is 3 days and we aim to apply the first treatment within 10 working days from your acceptance of our management programme. We believe our prompt service is one of the fastest in the invasive weed sector but this isn’t because our service is of less quality or depth. We have a small family team who work efficiently together which keeps the process succinct.
