The Magic Shovel

5/22/2019 by Rebecca

I have bought four as gifts after finding it amazing in transplanting large rose bushes. Using his, a friend planted 1000 ferns in one day inday in the woods and 35 blooming forsythia bushes along a road side in 75 minutes. No one should garden without it. My daughter-in-law wondered why she needed a third shovel and let it sit in the garage unwrapped for four months. She is the one who gave it the name “Magic” shovel after her first try.More > < Less


Perfect Tool

Saw this as I was looking through the catalog. We are constantly doing yard work. I have used this since we received it and am very happy with it. I have used it primarily for getting to roots of weeds. Have not done any root splitting but have no concern that it will work as stated. Product lives up to the description!More > < Less

Crazy wonderful

This shovel is everything it says it is. I'm 60+ and petite. I took my first dig and hit a root. This shovel sliced right through it like nobody's business. I planted a bush in no time flat. If I had used my old shovel I would have been there for at least an hour trying to dig a hole through old roots.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.
