You can get them from local nurseries or mail order from places like this: American Holly - Holly Family - Willis Orchard Company If you start with the 2-3 foot size you will have privacy within 2 years. The smaller size will take an extra year or so. It's cheap, has little in the way of disease problems and isn't invasive while it is prickly enough to deter snoops.
OMG, I agree on Multifloral Rose!! It's horrendous but it can be killed off. When we moved to our 10 acres last May, this crap was all over the place. It was very time consuming to remove. I can't believe the previous owners allowed it to get out of hand. We've removed and killed off all the ones we have found but one at this point...we'll likely get that last one very soon! The ones we missed during summer/fall were easy to spot in winter.

Thanks for the suggestion on the American Holly...this was my initial preference too. I need to research more to see if this can be managed with little care and is a financially reasonable option for us.
