Nothing spells summer like an outdoor fire, some marshmellows, a little bit of wine and 3-15 mosquito bites. While we can all agree that burning things is fun especially when we are making a massive bonfire, the cleanup isn’t always so great.
Luckily outdoor fire pits offer a solution that beats out the traditional camp fire almost everytime. You might not agree, thinking that an actual fire pit is better. However I’d disagree for a couple of reasons.
- It’s much easier to cleanup.
- It looks nicer.
- It’s safer.
- Did I mention – it’s much easier to cleanup.
I’ve installed a lot of these units and below I’m going to share my wife, Tammy, and my favorite outdoor firepits.

Landmann 26364 23-1/2-Inch Savannah Garden Light Fire Pit
The Landmann Savannah Garden fire pit has an elegant and efficient design that radiates great heat and creates a beautiful ambience at night.
This is an ideal fire pit that is compact, decorative, and very effective. The large 23-1/2 inch bowl sits on four cute legs and has a cutout design to radiate more heat than insulated fire bowls.
The Landmann fire pit has a solid steel construction that is designed for quick assembly.
The fire bowl is complete with a spark screen to protect from popping embers and the cover fits snugly into the inner diameter of the fire bowl so it will never slide off. The wood sits deeply in the body of the fire bowl and the spark lid sits nicely on top of the wood. These features provide a sturdy and protective design.
I recommend padding sand to the bottom of the fire bowl to create insulation and allow things to settle. The bottom of the fire bowl can get very hot, so keep it away from tall grass or flammable materials. Learn more about outdoor fire pit safety.
It Looks Great
The fire pit has a unique and ancient look with a sleek, black finish and stylish cutout design that provides an all-encompassing view of the fire. The fire pit truly looks amazing at night.
Decorative handles are included for easy transport as well as a decorative spark screen, poker, and four decorative legs for strong support.
Landmann Savannah Firepit Rocks
Overall, the Landmann Savannah Garden Light Fire Pit has an excellent design that keeps the fire burning for a long time. Deep pits work much better than shallower bowls at producing heat and maintaining hot embers. The Landmann has deep pit and a nice 360 degree open-air design that allows everyone around the pit to enjoy the heat.
