Garden Weaponry!

This is a terrific hand tool for working in my recently-cleared yard. I am reclaiming land from wild roses and shallow tree roots, and thanks to the Root Slayer, I'm winning! I can chop out roots and saw through thicker ones, while digging and planting new plants. This. is. fantastic!More > < Less

I have clay/stony soil, and this tool cuts right through it! Great for attacking weed roots too! Great product!

Someday it may stop raining and I plan to tear through a ton of weeds the rain brought!

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.
