Help with hiding an electrical box in yard

We have a very unsightly electrical box in the middle of our backyard. Years before our house was built, the neighbors behind us paid to have the box moved out of their yard and into our's. It now sits in a horrible spot in my backyard. I had someone come out from the electric company to look at it, and he said it would cost over $5,000 out of our pockets to have it moved into another spot in our yard. The trouble with the spot it's in too is occasionally that spot in our yard floods pretty badly when it rains hard. (The guy from the electric company said the box being surrounded by water wasn't a hazard...I don't really believe him). Any and all ideas on how to hide the box and incorporate it into our yard would be GREATLY appreciated.
