One thing you can't get rid of in my experience is mares tails. Sorry, don't know the proper name.

 

Easy to control, if one knows what they are doing. Proprietary blends of Glyphosate & 2,4-D (product names Kurtail, Diamond etc) are highly efficacious in this application.

Even the strongest weed killer won’t go far enough down to kill it. 

Incorrect.

When you say the "weedkiller won't go down far enough", can you explain what the 'strength' of the herbicide has got to down with the translocation? Also worth noting that the 'strength' of concentration can be overdone - it is not about 'more' with Knotweed control, it is about the right product, the right rate, the right frequency, the right method of application and the right timing.

So, in other words, it's 'Tricky'? :D

What is the name of your company, Tricky?  I googled 'tricky companies in IOM' and there are 1000s!  Mostly with a head office in Panama.

Tricky's Invasives

You won't find any Knotweed in Panama... or Horsetail for that matter😘
