Excellent Work Tool

Quality tool. Very comfortable handle. Similar to some other tools costing several times more. Great price through Grommet.


Tree Roots

7/26/2018 by Roxy

Give this to my husband as a gift because I knew he was going to need it to cut some roots. Says to rate it four stars, it does the job and seems pretty sturdy. His only complaint ment was it was not meant for the size of roots that our tree had! But he went ahead and used it for some of the work and thought it was pretty handy garden tool. Didn’t have one like 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.
