Energy Saver!

6/25/2019 by Susan

Of all the appliances, tools and gadgets I have purchased throughout the years (I'll soon be 70), the Root Slayer is without a doubt, THE BEST investment I've ever made. I have an ornamental grass that spreads like a bad weed, although it is beautiful, that desparetly needed to be thinned out and divided. It was such a daunting task that even my strong sons dreaded mom's request for help doing it.

After purchasing the Root Slayer, my 12 year-old grandson, was able to do the task with just a bit of effort. I will be purchasing 2 more to give to my sons, at Christmas.

I was digging up some old shrubs and this shovel made my job easier. It lived up to my expectations and am glad I ordered it.


Wonderfully easy planting!

My yard has many old roots from ground covers that were constantly stopping my planting. I had to get clippers, cut the roots and then dig the dirt out. This shovel is fantastic - now with one easy push, I know I can bring up the old roots and plant my new plants easily. The old roots will eventually rot anyway due to the top of the plants already being dead. I love this shovel!


Root Slayer Shovel

I love this shovel. I am elderly and don't have the strength that I use to have, but this shovel does most of the work for you. I looked at it for several weeks while you had pictures of it and finally ordered it and I am so glad I did.


So far, very good

Bought one for my husband-he was so satisfied with it that I bought another one for my daughter, whose soil is very tough to dig up.


Works great!

I was using a shovel to pull up my weeds. This Root Slayer Shovel makes it a lot easier. Sturdy, solid constuction too.


big patch of overgrown dietes gone

Worked great - the long strong handle, wide area for feet, narrow initial edge were exactly right for digging up the wire- like pervasive roots of the patch of clumping overgrown fortnight lillies. Didn't feel like I was going to break the handle when I pried up the clumps, could get deeper underneath them to get all of the roots up since I could jump on the foot area. Fairly heavy, very sturdy, well and thoughtfully designed.


Great product

Used Shovel the day after I received it to install a mailbox post.Easily cut through sod, hard packed soil, and tree roots. Pleasantly surprised how well it worked.

Just came in from digging up weeds. This shovel goes deep and digs up most of the root and leaves. Some roots are just too long and I can't get the entire root. You can edge with it too.

It's really saving so much time and it's the best garden tool I've used. My hats off to you. I brought the shovel into the house to store it as I didn't want anyone to steal it. I love it!!! Good for a women as it worked well for me.


Unique and practical

This little shovel does what none of the others will do - cut through the root tangle.

The Radius Garden Story

Tree roots meet their maker.

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. Read More Read Less
