Ugly Garage

I have a 3 car garage that takes up half my backyard. I installed 3 patio doors on the back of my house. I love the natural light and looking at the trees but I can't stand looking at the garage anymore. I wanted to move the garage closer to the house but with new 20 foot setbacks codes that is impossible. Anyone have any ideas? Its vinyl siding. I was thinking of painting it. I heard there is a special paint for vinyl.

How about putting up a pergola and/or planting trees or bushes (crepe myrtles?, a fast growing poplar?) to hide it? Also painting it a darker color (matte forest green) would help.

Mossy oak camo, and you won't be able to see it anymore. :-]
