We had inherited leylandi hedges on left and right of garden and then kind neighbours planted one across the back making three. We removed the left one last summer which was a huge job but I feel I can breathe again with space and now have lovely fenced border which I am slowly populating with smaller plants. Would strongly advise against planting a conifer hedge of any type. Other evergreen shrubs like laurel or holly as suggested are available.
