How can I hide septic/well covers & pipes?

I don’t like the idea of the fake rock as critters tend to build nests under them and will need easy access

    Perhaps you can use a ‘mini deck’. Build it out of pressure treated plywood then put potted plants, yard gnome, etc. on top of it. This will give you the capability to move it when needed.

    I would put long wood frame box covers over them. For the covers, I would put square boxes over those. Depending on the location, I'd place planters over those for decorative purposes. If the pipes are in a grassy area, paint them green to camouflage them.

    You could make a flower garden around the septic pipes/cover and plant perennials to hide things. I have fake rocks over mine. I have not had any critters make a nest. They are pushed down into the ground a few inches and I do have some perennials planted around them with a border of large rocks. I have also mulched over the area.
