Need Advice Please

I need advice for a privacy hedge please. I am building a home in the Austin suburb/ Texas Hill Country and need to begin plans for privacy hedge at the rear of our property. My requirements are:

1. The deer are not drawn to it

2. evergreen

3. moderate to fast growth ideally to at least 8’ upon maturity

I am considering the privets but am unclear as to which are desirable versus undesirable, and Laurel Cherry. Any information or suggestions provided will be greatly appreciated.
