Thank you and more questions about shrubbage and Swedish Ivy :)

Hi y'all... Thanks for the help with the Elm trees. I finally waded through the information and am fairly comfortable with a few of the varieties, so once we get the path constructed I'll be acquiring some. :) The one in the lead right now is the Princeton Elm. One side of the path (think groomed path about the width of a human leading a horse wandering through trees) I want to be Elms, the other side Sugar Maples. ~GRIN~ Now, another question! We live on a wild, untamed, chunk of land. Which we're leaving relatively as is as we don't want to disturb the moose and bear, but we are taming some of it for our use. Around my house is mostly rock (in fact, the house is sitting on a giant slab of it), so I'm going to be doing mostly raised beds for flowers and stuff. My house is mostly hidden from the driveway, but there is one corner "exposed". Up the hill a little bit from the house I'd like to plant something shrub-like to block the view of my house from the driveway. Something bushy and hardy in cold and wind (I'm in very northern maine, zone 3-4 I believe). I don't care if it flowers or not. Right now I'm just thinking an evergreen shrub of some sort, but that's so... I don't know, mundane? :) Also, anyone know how much light a Swedish Ivy needs? I have one in my office and it gets no natural light and it's looking kinda ragged. I have a lamp next to it with a 40 watt sunlight bulb. It's on all day every day that I am there. Which is about 10 hours a day 6 days a week these days. :P
