    I've got about 7' wide space to fill with something that will grow to about 7-8' tall and up to 3' wide. This is for privacy from neighbors, but I don't want to shade their entire deck with 15' trees - our properties are very close. I came across some lovely Blue Point Junipers at the nursery a few days ago but now I'm realizing that they will probably want to get much taller than than 8' and I guess topping junipers is not a good idea. I really don't want to top anything because I like a more natural look. Does anything come to mind? I prefer cypress, false cypress, and junipers over yews and arborvitae, but I know there's probabably not a lot that fits the requirements.

    I know you posted this in Gymnosperms, or it ended up here after seeing the plants you mentioned, but what about clumping bamboo?

    That would probably fit the space, but I'm not a fan of bamboo. Going for a more PNW feel.
