Container pond camouflague

I have a 155 gallon container pond and am doing my best to camouflage the edges. I have plenty of planters around the thing to hide some of the plastic, but still, the big grey plastic edge is an eye sore.

Has anyone ever had any success hiding the edges? I thought about trying to grow some moss over the edge, but am not sure what it would attach to or if it would stay wet enough here in Phoenix.

Any thoughts? or pictures?

This is above ground correct? I used to keep gar and I used rubbermaid troughs to house them. I built wood enclosures to surround the troughs and cut slate tiles to shape with a grinder and concrete wheel and attached them with silicone to the top edges of the troughs and the wood enclosure. Mine were kept indoors so I do not have any personal experience keeping out raccoons, possums, birds, etc...... This may not be an option if you do not have the tools though.

Plant big enough plants in the planters that will overgrow and cover everything.
