Spartan junipers get a bit under 20, but quite hardy.

Ah ok ...thought those Leland get real high? I know you can keep cutting them back, maybe some sort of Arborvitae

why 20'? photinia? I prefer the Jackon and perkins simplicity hedge roses. 2 years and they are 6-10 feet. grow dence and have a ton of roses. get tired of the height get out the hedge trimmers and cut them down 1/3 the height. that and keeps out the neighbors and dogs.

I have Leyland Cypress and there Great, just be sure to treat them for Bag Worms in the spring. If you don't THEY WILL DIE

Check for availability on Green Giant arborvitae. More controlled growth than Leyland Cypress and so far, more pest and disease resistant. Anytime you plant 1 type of plant you are risking creating banquet conditions for pests or disease to destroy your entire screen, besides it will look very boring. Throw in a couple of different plants that will still create your desired effect, and you will provide a much healthier condition as well as add much more interest.

Variety is the spice of life. Toss in something different. Maybe to accent a certain area or post where the fence meets.
