Are you wanting evergreen plants or is deciduous ok? Deciduous plants loose their foliage during the winter months, and evergreens keep their foliage year round. Is the property line area in full sun?

No evergreens please.... we have plenty... The property line is on the east side. Neighbor has evergreens, garage and trees which would shade during early morning but there's nothing to shade afternoon into evening sun.
