I don't know a lot about your climate, but I am assuming rainy with fairly mild winters?
Wax myrtle/bayberry is a nice small tree which can be pruned into a privacy hedge. It is fast growing, evergreen, pretty trouble free. It has separate male and female plants. If you have both, the females will make pleasantly scented berries from which bayberry candles were made. It is a US native, so I don't know if available where you are.
Rhododendron is a beautiful flowering evergreen that can be used as a hedgerow. It is very adaptable, since it grows in almost every part of the US.
Dwarf cherry laurel/english laurel is another nice hedge plant, with glossy evergreen leaves, fragrant flowers. By getting the dwarf version it will require less trimming to keep it to two meters height.
