invasive plant spade like leaves

Hello. We moved house last week and I'd appreciate some advice please. There are a few areas of the garden which are swamped in an invasive plant. I don't think its Japanese knotweed but it may be anothet variety. Its low (currently) with one spade type leaf per juicy stem which is easy to snap. If you pull out the root it is gnarly and strong and penetrating the surrounding border walls. They are everywhere. Help! What action do I take? I don't like weedkiller but we're at the start of a gardening project so id rather take drastic action now than in the future. I'm a novice gardener but very keen to learn. Thanks. I have a photo, I'll see if I can add to my profile.
