  • I am a neighbour and was alarmed by this report. Japanese knotweed in this area would be a true disaster. Hence I had a quick look and if you talk about the corner by the footpath I believe this is ivy. Very invasive, too, but not nearly as difficult or impossible to get rid of. It may have rooted in your garden as well by now, so only a combined effort of the council and you can make it go.
