    You could plant large shrubs around it, just leave access to fill it. Or you could put up a fence or lattice.

    I once saw one dressed like a pig, curly tail, ears and snout. If you can’t hide it, feature it.

    Hi Honor,
    I was also thinking about hiding it with something like a fence that still leaves access, but another idea, depending your painting "skills" would be to paint it to look like a garden. You could start at the bottom with either painted"dirt" or "grass". Find a picture of flowers that you love and duplicate that to the best of your ability on the tank. It doesn't have to be perfect! You could then paint the top sky blue with some clouds in it. If you plant a few real flowers or bushes in front of it, it could become a beautiful focus point of your yard. Good luck and wishing you the best!

    Can you paint it to look like some of your flowers?
  • Honor Honor on Apr 23, 2018
    Fiddledd224 that is such a good idea, I am looking at it & imagining how well it could look with that done; but by a better artist than me!! Thank you, Honor
