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.

Quick Questions

How can I clean and maintain my Radius Garden tools?

Here are a few tips:

Handles: The non-latex rubber substitutes are easy to clean. You can use water and any hand soap or dishwashing liquid. Rinse and dry them after washing. Keep your tools in your toolshed or garage when they are not in use. Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight and high temperatures can cause thermoplastics to deteriorate over time.

Blades: All tool blades should be cleaned after each use and lightly oiled. You can use silicone oil or products like 3-In-One oil, bar oil, engine oil, or any other petroleum-based oil. Do not use vegetable oil.

Sharpening: Carbon steel blades are easy to sharpen with a rotary grinding tool or a simple metal file. Sharpen from the side that is already beveled. Follow the angle as closely as possible for best results.

Are these hand tools and shovels good for those with mobility issues?

Yes, the Maker tells us that the tools allow customers with arthritis, carpal tunnel, and other hand and wrist problems to spend more time, more comfortably in the garden.

What is the inspiration for the product design?

The Maker designs most of the products in Ann Arbor, Michigan. They also work with a few independent product designers based in the U.S. The two primary sources of inspiration for the products are the Maker's own experience as a lifelong gardener and lots of research into ergonomics and human factors.
