Reviews (5 out of 5 Grommets)

Absolutely a must for any gardener

6/2/2019 by Kathleen

Purchased two of these and gave one as a gift. My friends now uses this shovel (?) for everything. They say it has replaced at least 4 other tools and is just the right weight, well balanced. It gets the job done!!!

Great gift for any gardener or anyone who works in the yard. Great multi-purpose tool.


It Really, Really Works!

OMG! I was skeptical when ordering this shovel but after using it just once, I can confirm that it really works. Digging holes for new plantings in areas of existing plants cuts through the roots of neighboring plants to give a root free area for the new plant. I removed a cutoff trunk that I never thought I would get out of the ground. It's very good at removing grass sod when you want to create a new garden bed. It has so many uses.


The Magic Shovel

I have bought four as gifts after finding it amazing in transplanting large rose bushes.
Using his, a friend planted 1000 ferns in one day in the woods and 35 blooming forsythia bushes along a road side in 75 minutes. No one should garden without it. My daughter-in-law wondered why she needed a third shovel and let it sit in the garage unwrapped for four months. She is the one who gave it the name “Magic” shovel after her first try.


Perfect Tool

Saw this as I was looking through the catalog. We are constantly doing yard work. I have used this since we received it and am very happy with it. I have used it primarily for getting to roots of weeds. Have not done any root splitting but have no concern that it will work as stated. Product lives up to the description!


Perfect shovel to dig out weeds!

Crazy wonderful

This shovel is everything it says it is. I'm 60+ and petite. I took my first dig and hit a root. This shovel sliced right through it like nobody's business. I planted a bush in no time flat. If I had used my old shovel I would have been there for at least an hour trying to dig a hole through old roots.


Smaller Root Slayer

I love this shovel...great for everything and not too heavy. Splitting day lilies, trimming plants that are too big, digging up dirt in pathways, making holes to Transplant! Does it all and easily.


As the name says

5/17/2019 by Robert

I've had issues with deep rooted weeds and "junk" trees up to when I purchased this shovel.
It is as the name states, a high quality, easy to use root slaying shovel.
A great purchase.


recipient is thrilled

My mom asked for this shovel for Christmas. This spring she has sung its praises daily, it works so well for removing plants to transplant, even wood hyacinths are easily dug out with this deep sharp shovel. Highly recommended.

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
