Shrubbery suggestion to replace felled arborvitae


Hi there:

Looking to replace the arborvitae that formerly lived in the blank space in the photo below.

The arborvitae reached up to the roof peak and was a decent conical shape until a wind strom sheared it in half a couple weeks ago.

Yesterday I uprooted the remainder and am looking for something new to fill the vertical space.

The site gets full morning sun and partial afternoon sun. Climate-wise, I live near Boston.

Looking to add curb appeal before the house goes on the market (without breaking the bank).

Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks!

PS: Left to right, those are yews, an azalea, and hostas

Keep it all low this time.
A yew or two... and then some azalea and hosta in front would look nice there.

Looks to me like a new coat of stain might be in order before any plants
