Landscape Design Solutions: Screening Utilities  

from Plants Daily Post

Screening Panels
October 24, 2008 Landscape Design Solutions

A Multipurpose Screen

Screen panels should be used more to conceal utilities around the home, which are usually placed on the very narrowest sides of the property. In such cases, screening hedges tend to take up valuable space and the air conditioner people dislike them around the equipment anyway.

Pre-fabricated options in wood or polyvinyl are reasonably priced, especially considering the savings on maintenance  labor over time. A more permanent or custom construction can be made of wood lattice panels on posts set in concrete, then stained, painted, or used to support a not too vigorous vine.
