This is a compact version of the best-selling Root Slayer® Shovel — the head is about 30% smaller — which makes it lighter weight and ideal for small spaces, raised beds, and borders. With all the sharpness and strength of the original, it's also a stellar weeder: try it on stubborn plants like knapweed, sprouted tree seedlings, dandelions, curly dock, thistles, and more!
If you dread the annual battle against dandelions and other stubborn weeds, this is the tool for you. It works like a corkscrew, twisting down around roots and then pulling them out whole. Made of top-notch materials it's earned a spot in our exclusive Intervale Collection heirloom-quality tools that feel good in the hand and can be trusted to get the work done.
Eight independent university tests rated this patented landscape fabric #1 for stopping weeds. The porous, dual-layer fabric lets air, water and nutrients pass through, yet stifles nearly all weed growth.
Weeding between garden rows is tiresome work, and most mulches barely last a season, especially if you walk on them. Now you can solve the problem the efficient, lasting way that professional nurseries do!
