Siding for a garage


I'm going to be building a 22X24 detached garage on a house I just bought and doing all the general contracting for it to keep prices down. I'm wondering what people recommend to use for siding. I initially was pushed towards hardy plank, but my budget is tight with all I'm doing to the home. I'm wondering if people have any recommendations on vinyl siding? Also had a contractor talk about LP Smartside. I like the idea of not having to paint vinyl and the low maintenance, but I don't want anything of poor quality either. Any advice would be appreciated.

FYI - The house is stucco in Milwaukee, WI. I'm assuming I won't match the stucco appearance with the garage. Given harsh weather in Wisconsin, also looking for a siding that will stand up to the elements.

Thanks,
Chris
