Shrubs and plantings needed to hide electrical boxes on property, what type?
We live in a new townhouse community. There are 3 units to each with electrical boxes (every other property). There are 3 boxes varying in size located between each neighbor properties. They are 12 ft from road, placed in circular position. Question: What type of shrubs and plantings would you suggest to hide this? I would like to have shrubs fully grown in size right now. Any suggestions?

Hi,

 

Thanks for writing. You didn't mention how tall the boxes are or the growing conditions (sun/shade, soil type, etc.)., so I can't really make any recommendations. But the staff at your local garden center or nursery should be able to. They'll also be able to tell you what's actually going to be available for purchase in your area.

 

If you want to do a little research ahead of time, check out our Plant Encyclopedia --- it will allow you to search for plants based on a wide range of factors, including hardiness Zone, bloom time, deer resistance, and other factors.
