Help me hide me neighbors toilet... and all the other trash the have on the side of their house.
Looking for creative hedge ideas. We would like to plant a privacy hedge so we don't have to look out our windows and see our neighbor's junk. Our houses sit about 15ft apart on one side. It is only the front side yard we need to worry about as the back yard has a nice tall 8ft fence. Wish list inside.

We would like something that will not spill over on their property and make any work or issues for them. Upright growth preferred so as not to lose too much space. Minimal, if any, pruning preferred. I plan to plant some fragrant bushes next to our house, so I need a bit of room for gardening. Evergreen would be nice. They tend to have visitors at all hours, so a little sound absorption would be nice too. The plan is to plant along the stretch from the back fence down to the street (roughly 6 car lengths). The hedge would run along their driveway on our side of the property. Something tall, but not so tall it overtakes the house (single story home), so maybe 8-9ft at maturity.
I have been looking at evergreens online, but I'm a novice. The front yard faces north west and we are in growing zone 7.
