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.


Gardening/Metal Detecting Toy

I love both the large and small root slayer. I use them when starting new areas for planting. I also use them in locations where we're trying to reclaim land from overgrowth (most of which is thorny). My husband loves it for metal detecting.


Works great

The narrow tip and serrated edges are both improvements over the traditional “sharpshooter” shovel. I was surprised at how heavy the tool is, the shape key me to think it would be lighter. I hardly recommend it for the fit gardener.


Awesome shovel

This is a super useful shovel for getting in between plants and cutting through roots and hard soil. Very sturdy and ergonomic. Watch out invasive mini irises you are about to be split! Love it!


Haven't used it yet but soon

I know this will do just what I need. It is compact enough to use in my garden where we used cobblestones for mulch. I need to replace some creeping flox and this will make it easy.


Root slayer shovel

Wonderful. Cuts quickly and deeply in areas that are difficult to penetrate. Great for removing old densely rooted shrubs.

It's fantastic! It works well.


A great product for a no fun job!

Tore out a 30 year old stump from a huge shrub. Besides digging the "donut hole" with a regular shovel, the root slayer was almost the only tool I needed. I have the XL and it is super sturdy, plenty heavy enough to pack a punch, and goes through roots like a vegematic.

Worth every penny!


Money well spent

Had to remove about 12 saplings that were in various states of growth. It sliced through the sinuous roots with no difficulty. Well made. Going to be using this so much.

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
