Garden Incinerator Reviews

A garden incinerator is super useful to have around, to burn scrap wood, leaves and paper (documents you might need to destroy). It also makes a great outdoor heat source if you don’t own a chiminea
Most garden incinerators are a metal drum unit on legs (so as not to destroy the ground below). They usually come with lids for safe garden burning.
You don’t need anything fancy in order to use an incinerator. Just place it somewhere safe and secure in the garden, throw in your rubbish and set it alight. The holes in the side of the unit allow air into the incinerator for a better burning fire. Some incinerators come with tools for poking the fire and some have shovels / scoops to help to clean it out. These however, are not essential and the incinerator can be cleaned by simply tipping out (carefully and when cool) the ash from the fire.
