How to hide utility boxes in front yard?

Answered
We live in a Villa with 3 exposed utility boxes. They put these in the front yard and it's ugly. Any suggestions on how to hide the boxes to look better but still be able to get at the utilities? I've thought of fake rocks but the three I have are too far apart.

    You could use pots around them with tall enough plants to hide them and you can use them if the utility companies need to access them.

    What kind of utility boxes? You need to call the businesses and find out what they allow. Some places (like our electric company) want clear and easy access to the meters.
    These boxes are serious business, and there are often restrictions about what you can do near them, like bans on permanent structures and distances before you can plant anything. Make sure to follow these restrictions – the companies need access and underground wires need room to run free of roots.

    Lattice surround!

    Intersperse rocks with some plantings?

    Lattice is a great idea! And then you can add flowers and seasonal decor to it
