How to Add Curb Appeal to Your Standby Generator

January 17, 2019

We’ve been selling, installing and servicing generators since 1978, which means we’ve heard a number of worries that come with purchasing a standby generator.

Many customers are rightfully worried about the appearance of the generator once it’s in their yard. Generators are a fantastic source of backup power, but their appearance doesn’t exactly add curb appeal to your home.


Let’s talk about the top ways to screen and landscape around your generator:


Minimalistic Fence

Building minimalist around your standby generator is a great way to completely hide your generator from plain sight. Plus, the fence will most likely create a sound barrier and muffle some of the noise from your generator. By doing this, you make it look like your generator belongs instead of sticking out like a sore thumb.

Flower Beds/Plants

Everyone loves a yard that shows off the owner’s green thumb. Planting colorful flowers around your home generator makes for a great distraction and takes some of the attention off your new backup power system. Instead of an obvious utility piece acting as a sort of eyesore, this will create a gorgeous landscape.

Farmhouse Doors

The modern farmhouse décor is a trend that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere soon. By incorporating rustic, farmhouse doors into your backyard landscape, the farm doors will cover up the majority of your home generator. Plus, you can use the farmhouse doors to hang flower pots from, giving your backyard a unique style.
