Shrub roots harmful to foundation?

I want to plant something outside my windows to screen our view into our neighbor's windows. What will provide four season privacy without disrupting our foundation walls. We are in zone 6.

Hi,

 

Thanks for writing. Most smaller shrubs (less than 10 feet or so tall) shouldn't bother your foundation --- it's only large shrubs or trees that are typically a problem.
