    Buy or Build a white picket fence, privacy fence or make a wooden box, probably huge, with an open top and one side for ventilation.
  • Bushes or lattice fencing

    How much space is available? Do setback requirements limit your plantings / construction?
    Whatever you do, consult the manufacturer to allow proper access when maintaining the unit!

      no setback requirements as I am far from the road. The generator is situated the minimum 8 feet from the side of the house. Looking perhaps for some type of fencing (on a budget) that would also help prevent from snow covering the intake. (Lots of snow in NH)

    I might set up a few posts with lattice between... then plant a climbing vine or grapes... if the unit needs heavy service, it can easily be ripped out.
