Ugly garage wall

hi guys, any ideas about how to disguise my garage wall? I’ve just finished painting the shed and fence black, rather like it and was wondering whether to carry on and paint the garage wall black too.  What do you think?
Thanks for any ideas or comments

    Deffo paint it black, it'll practically vanish( contrast the fence now and the garage ) and it'll show off what's planted in front.

    I agree with @Hostafan1 ... itll be great. 😊

    Thank you for the comments @Hostafan1 and @Dovefromabove I think I agree with you. Any thoughts on the white plastic fascia?

    I don't think it looks that ugly myself.
    Just paint it black and keep the white fascia  :)

    Thought you might want to see the end result.  Looks a lot better although the pyracantha had to go.  Still it’s a tough old thing and will just grow up again.
    Still not sure about the white fascia though...

    I does look a bit white😉 it will probably be less noticeable' when things grow up the wall. You've done a great job!

    In case it helps, this is what it would look like if painted or replaced with black (was having a cup of tea so fired-up photoshop.) :)

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    Loks much better, I agree it'd be better without the white facia.

    Wow @BobTheGardener very impressed with your photoshop skills.  Not sure whether I like it all black, or white.  Maybe a darkish grey would tone it down but still create a bit of an outline ?  Many thanks @Hostafan1 @B3 and @madpenguin for your comments
