How to Disguise Your Oil Tank

Even though your Oil Tank may have many benefits, it can look out of place in your garden. Especially if it is situated in an open area. In this blog we go over the best ways to draw attention away from your Oil Tank.

Plants

Nothing will look more at home in your garden that plants and flowers, not only do they look lovely but over time they will do a great job of hiding your tank. Plants will act as a camouflage and really help your tank blend into the background. The best plants to get are climbing foliage, they are quick at growing and will provide great coverage. If you choose this option it’s important to keep in mind space, don’t put your plants too near your Oil Tank as they could affect the foundations it is on or even block your entry.

Fences

If your Oil Tank is located nearer your property, for instance on the side of your house, fences work a treat! When choosing a fence try to match the tone with the surroundings, otherwise it could make your Oil Tank stand out even more. Some materials will work better than others so make sure you experiment. This is also a great time to ask friends and family if they found fences beneficial for their Oil Tank. When installing the fence around your tank it’s important to make sure the top is not covered, meaning you are not restricted when a new oil delivery arrives.

Shed Effect

If your Oil Tank is on the larger scale, then this method will look great. When working with the shed effect the idea is to focus on perspective, you need to give the impression of a normal shed. When creating your tank covering it’s important that you do not cover any access points. Which is why it’s wise to not include a roof, saving you hassle in the long run.

Please remember that if you do follow these steps you must make sure to keep compliant with current oil storage regulations.

Wensleydale U13's coaching session by Newcastle Falcons/Scotland player Rory Lawson.
published mar 2013

Wensleydale U13's were in for a big surprise when they turned up to training Sunday to be told their session was being delivered by Newcastle Falcons and Scotland international scrum half Rory Lawson!!

Even the sun was warm and inviting in honour of Rory that day!!

The session started with a couple of fun warm up games then he got down to the rugby.
Rory really put the boys through their paces, testing both their technique and game playing skills.
The boys all worked really hard and seemed to enjoy every aspect of the session. They were all engaged and engrossed the whole time. Rory really delivered a top rate session.
Several of the coaches watched on in awe at the way Rory conducted the session and interacted with the boys.
The session ended with a game which was both fast pace and productive.

What a day, one I'm sure the boys are glad they never missed! I know each and every one of the lads appreciated the experience and I'm sure it's something none of them will forget in a hurry!!

Rory even tweeted the club to express his thanks;

A massive thank you to Rory Lawson for giving up his time to visit our club and to Rory's current sponsor John Marshall at A1 Tank Services Limited,whom without, this never would have been possible.
