I love it, works perfectly without too much force needed. Great for those of us who aren’t super strong.


Great Tool


Very sturdy and one of the best tools of this style I’ve ever owned. (Purchased all 3 together)


This tool is The Best!


My review mirrors the one I wrote for the Root Slayer Shovel. I own both, and they make the difficult and arduous task of excavating deep rooted invasive species so much easier! I have repetitive strains injuries from trying to pull out deep roots, and I love this trowel for making it so much easier. If you don't have one, you need one. Seriously. And a plus is the cool name. :)More > < Less


Works as expected


I've only used it once so far, but I'm happy. It cut through the roots of the old tomato plants I was trying to clear from the garden.




Greatest trowel ever made. Feels like it was made for my hand. It has super powers

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.
