Irish junipers (Juniperus communis 'Stricta') are a favorite evergreen shrub of mine for privacy screens. With a dense growth-habit and narrow, columnar form, just let them stand together in a colonnade to form a loose border, walling out unwanted sights, sounds and overly-curious neighbors. Irish juniper has a wonderful bluish-green color and grows to 10'-12' in height. These evergreen shrubs are so narrow in width as to resemble a column. Skyrocket juniper is tall and narrow as is Sky Pencil holly. Hope one of these suggestions works well in your landscape.
