We are looking for a "hedge" of tall conifers, maybe as a barrier between us and our next door neighbors going down beside our lot and theirs. We would like something tall and thin so it doesn't overtake the side yard or the fence. We have a pool and this will block off our pool from them if they are sitting outside and make be even block some sound so we never disturb them.

Hi bgs1. Suitable conifers all depend on where you live, your soil, how sunny the area is, etc. Without knowing that I really can't intelligently comment, so it would be best for you to find a good local nursery (not a big box store garden dept) and follow their suggestions. Good luck.
