You could plant something which is large and dense like laurel, which can be pruned easlily unlike Leylandii - which goes brown if you prune too hard. Or you could plant some trees, like apples, crab apples, flowering cherries, not evergreen but have blossom and a network of branches in winter. Or you could put up a pergola or tall trellis and grow clematis, honeysuckle (some evergreen, some not). Or climbing roses, but not evergreen.
Or if you want something more like Leylandii there are other conifers, but not as fast growing eg Thuja.
