Good old privet will do the job -although not fully evergreen, and easy to maintain. You can plant around and in front of it as it's less of an issue re moisture etc.
I'd personally have Beech or Hornbeam as it can be kept very neat, retains it's foliage over winter, doesn't cause problems with moisture, and you can plant in front or around it. Useful for sheltering wildlife too
A mix of berrying hedging is the best for wildlife, but perhaps not really the most suitable for the OP.
The bare root season is almost over, so you'll need to get in quick! I've used Hopes Grove Nusery several times and they've always been excellent.
