How about a tapestry hedge for colour, variety and wildlife? A mix of your choice of deciduous, evergreen, flowering and fruiting varieties would be terrific and move with the seasons. Shame you don't want thorns as hawthorn, blackthorn and Holly can be spectacular. But photina, guelder rose, beech (green and copper), elder, yew, amelanchier would all fit the bill.
