Hi I have this ESB box in my front garden, I wonder if anyone has any suggestions to grow something that will conceal that box, some neighbours have clematis that are spilling over their walls on to the footpath. I wouls appreciate any suggestions anyone would have that i could plant behind the laurel tree that would also be evergreen if possible. thanks in advance[/img]

My Aunt has a beautiful evergreen honeysuckle.(Lonicera) trailing over the pillar of her gate. I don't know the exact name of the honeysuckle she has but it looks very similar to this one

It's really beautiful with lovely yellow scented blossoms. And of course the added bonus is it's evergreen Smile

Dont know if it is legal to cover those boxes but if it is and you have the space you could plant a small weeping willow to drape down over it. You may have to move the laurel.

I also think it would look very pretty alongside the picket fence Smile
