    Build a small fence around. Or just use lattice on posts and plant some vines ... like Jasmine.

    Has to be in back of house min. 3 ft from property line. Tight on rear space, pool behind house on right side of detached garage. Garage is 5 feet to property line cant go behind garage, or left of. Possibly on right of but would take away plantings. Figure best would be right property line. I like the lattice idea., the grass rock would not go at all. Its a beach setting with sand and rock yard.
    Brookstone has some nice Faux boulders I was considering., but was looking tor something more elegant so to speak.

    Well, since my stuff is just sitting out around the corner of the house, I have no photos to share.

    Build a box over it, open at the back, with bamboo uprights and a thatch roof and have a bar installed on it. Dummy cabinet doors (or real ones, for access to valves) make it look like something other than equipment.

    Oops, forgot to draw bar stools.

    Heaters have some restrictions on their installation and surrounding areas. Make sure that the installation is up to code and manufacturer specs.

    Re: Clever ways to hide pool equipment...

    Love the bar idea! I have a four tall zebra grasses surrounding my equipment. Not as fancy as the bar, but a lot more cost-effective. Allows me full access to everything and obscures it enough from view that you don't even realize it's there. I cut them down to the ground in the fall, and come spring time they grow so fast that at this tme of year, the equipment is almost fully obscured from view already

    We extended our deck. So the area under that will be made into an enclosure for the pool hardware and toys/etc.

    these panels are at Lowes for $20 each and they hook together with brackets and screws (included for straight or corners). also have metal pieces for sticking in the ground.

    I think they are going to be even prettier with flowers planted around the base.

    What panels? Could you provide a link?

    I would like to build something around my equipment to reduce some of the noise.
