I'm looking for a fast growing shrub to use as a privacy fence for my front yard, acidic soil, high water table, zone 6. Something that will grow into a dense screen, preferably an evergreen I can maintain into a hedge of 5 feet.

Techny Gold arborvitae grows really well in your region, as does privet. Either can be trimmed to maintain a 5' tall privacy screen. There are lots of other choices in your garden center. Best wishes with your new hedge!
