As the name says

I've had issues with deep rooted weeds and "junk" trees up to when I purchased this shovel. It is as the name states, a high quality,ality, easy to use root slaying shovel.
A great purchase.

My mom asked for this shovel for Christmas. This spring she has sung its praises daily, it works so well for removing plants to transplant, even wood hyacinths are easily dug out with this deep sharp shovel. Highly recommended.More > < Less

I love both the large and small root slayer. I use them when starting new areas for planting. I also use them in locations where we're trying to reclaim land from overgrowth (most of which is thorny). My husband loves it for metal detecting.More > < Less


Works great

The narrow tip and serrated edges are both improvements over the traditional “sharpshooter” shovel. I was surprised at how heavy the tool is, the shape key me to think it would be lighter. I hardly recommend it for the fit gardener.More > < Less


Awesome shovel

This is a super useful shovel for getting in between plants and cutting through roots and hard soil. Very sturdy and ergonomic. Watch out invasive mini irises you are about to be split! Love it!More > < Less

About Radius Garden

Root Removers

Radius Garden Founder Bruce Baker created the Root Slayer family of root shovels to streamline digging, chopping, and sawing while you’re hard at work in the garden. And because Bruce always has usability and function in mind, his tools are ergonomic, durable, and guaranteed to last a lifetime.

These toughened up garden tools are made from strong but lightweight carbon steel, and all have an inverted-V cutting blade that’s lined with rip-saw teeth—this is where the slaying action comes from. The blade’s design is purposefully more narrow than typical tools to give you better access and leverage around roots. Ergonomic grips boost comfort, and there are even smart add-ons—like a twine cutter and bottle opener—built into the trowel and soil knife. These tools are a smarter way to get the dirty, root-removing job done.
