Answer: A variety of red cedar is for you then. Gurney's Seed & Nursery (110 Capital St., Yankton SD 75079; ph# 605/665-1930) sells one that requires little shearing to remain dense and can be kept at a reasonable height. It stands rough conditions (drought,poor soil) once established, but any shrub or tree planting will require mulch, some feeding and frequent watering during the first couple of years. I'm sure your local nursery can help you review some options as well.
