Recently moved into new home, we’ve a big back garden with just an oil tank at the rear left of garden. New to gardening and need all your advice and tips on best way to cover the oil tank with shrubs / plants and to sustain same. Would like it to be covered all year round and would appreciate all your suggestions.
Choose a broadleaved evergreen hedge such as laurel, olearia, pittsoporum or holly. Allow it to grow big enough to hide the object. Other decorative shrubs of choice can be planted in front of the hedging if you wish.
It might also be possible to locate other awkward items, such as compost area, storage area behind the screen too.
