I have 3 unsightly utility boxes in the corner of my yard that are an eyesore from the patio and family room. I would like to landscape in front to these but the underground cables prohibit me from doing so. I would also like to place my bird feeders in that area. Any suggestions on what I can do?

If you can't dig in the area, you may be able to have the underground cables located and install short trellises. You can then plant annual vines to climb on the trellises. Scarlet runner beans, sweet peas, or hyacinth bean plants are good choices. Likewise with bird feeders. Once the cables are located you should be able to drive metal posts into the ground and hang your birdfeeders from them. Good luck with your landscape.
