One idea suggestion might be a 3 sided lattice box, painted in a landscape color, or with an artificial ivy laced through the openings.
We are getting ready to hide one this fall. I found this on pinterest for ideas to inspire us. My husband likes the lattice version. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/8866530495869585/
How about on of those corner fence sections with two sides. The utility company may need to get to them sometime so nothing completely covering the housings would work. You could place the open section to the back where that large bush would cover the view.
You are lucky in one respect - I live in an old neighborhood and we have a large power pole near our yard complete with supporting cable. No covering that thing up.
How about putting FAKE BOULDERS over them. they're made of light weight material.
I actually looked into that and those fake boulders are crazy expensive...even more than real ones!!
