Ugly propane tank

Posted by tntpark IN 5 (My Page) on

I have a very ugly propane tank I would like to hide behind some OG. Not sure what kind. It sits at the bottom of a slope and gets some sun but not much. It would have to like wet conditions,clay soil and be deer resistant. Is there anything that would hide it year around.

RE: Ugly propane tank

Ornamental grasses arent the best for hiding ugly things year round. They should be cut down to a few inches in spring, leaving a gap for a while til it grows in again. Really an evergreen shrub or large perennial would be your best bet. There arent too many grasses that can stand shade. Good luck!


RE: Ugly propane tank

Go to the bamboo forum.
Evergreen screen year round.
You can keep them in check with a lawn mower.
Many bamboo like shade and several are meant for wet conditions.
The folks at Bamboo forum will help you out.

RE: Ugly propane tank

Please one thing! if you put ornamental grass next to your propane tank, make sure it's not the kind that's really sharp bladed. Our poor LP man came over the other day and he'd really had some trouble with some bushes and ornamental grass trying to fill a tank. FYI...

RE: Ugly propane tank

Can't you camouflage it? That's what we did with ours and it's not great but it makes a 500-gallon tank a lot less visible. Only issue is it has to reflect heat... There are good tips around
