Answer: Ficus would work, as would Cupressocyparis leylandii (Leyland Cypress), a fast growing pyramidal evergreen, with dark green foliage and good vigor. Great for screening.Grows to over 25' tall. Ilex x Nellie Stevens (Nellie Stevens Holly), a pyramidal holly growing to 20? tall, dwith ark green foliage and heavy red fruit production. One of the fastest growing hollies. Or Thuja Green Giant, a fast growing columnar evergreen growing up to 5' per year 35-45' or so. Vigorous & fast growing, dark green foliage stays green in winter.
For the smaller plant, consider boxwood or Nandina domestica Harbor Dwarf. This dwarf version of the species grows 2?-3? tall with the same elegant lacy foliage. Bronze orange and red fall color, white flowers and red fruit persists through winter.
Best wishes with your landscaping project.
