Most tools that are marketed to gardeners have flower prints and pastel colors, but Radius Garden understands that not everyone working the garden is a tenderfoot. Their Root Slayer garden tool is a shovel on PCP. It has serrated edges and a tapered shape that lets you slice through roots, chop through hardpack soil and overall own the dirt in the backyard. Few things are going to get in its way when you need to clear space or dig a hole. It maintains enough shovel form to move the dirt it loosens and is made of independently tested metal that is 150% stronger than other shovels. You can tame one of these for $49.
