Dilemma on property border/privacy in Zone 6

Hi!
Been going back and forth on some landscaping along our property line.
Have about 90 ft maybe. Would like a little privacy for our deck that is about 12ft off the ground. In zone 6, clay soil, full afternoon sun.
Was trying to avoid just a long row of arborvitae :).
And hollies are out due to dogs and children.
Was thinking of 3 columnar Franz Fontaine hornbeams near the deck, flanked on both sides by blue point junipers then a small Japanese maple on the end where it is more shaded.
Or might it be more optimal to go with all evergreens? ( junipers, Arizona cypress, arborvitae, conifers)
Thanks!
