I'm building a hedge bed to border a small suburban yard. The family wants a quick "fence" from my design. I'm planning to install a berm and a coniferous hedge combination of sea green juniper, wichita blue, emerald green arborvitae, and white pine. Zone 5 and full sun.

Any advice?

All commonly used in our area. Wichita's don't seem to be as long lived as the others but I like them anyway. Just tell the client to keep an eye out for bagworms at the appropriate times.

Only other tree I would suggest to think about is a blue point Juniper.

If you got photos, that would be great also.
