While I was working on the knotweed our contractor, DIGS, was taking
care of the big stuff. We have to eliminate all of the invasive species
(which is the bulk of vegetation on the site) to qualify for LEED points.
Hopefully the next step is clearing the mosquitoes off of the site.
I decimated Japanese knotweed this morning. I used cut shrub & vine killer which was so nasty that afterwards I couldn't even wash my clothes in my own washing machine because we have a septic tank and it could get into the groundwater. After reading the directions completely I don't think I'll ever be able to make myself buy it again. Once I'm out I think I'll use roundup for 2-3 treatments instead.
