Oil tanks certainly aren't things of beauty are they? Mine's tucked down a sort of gulley by the side of my house, you can only see it when you walk down the alleyway, and I've often wondered how to hide it. I think you've done a pretty good job with the gate (might nick that idea!). But I know what you mean, it would be nice to use plants as well. Growing something up the trellis on the gate would obviously be problematic, but as your tank looks as though it gets some sun on the top, maybe some containers up there? No idea how you would secure them, some sort of frame perhaps? And I've never heard raised pot saucers either!
