evergreen shrub for front of house

which evergreen shrub can i use to flank each side of my front steps. the house is a low ranch and there are other plants in the beds in front of the house. I am facing North and it is mostly in shade. I do not want it to get to tall, but it can't be short. I live on long island New york.

Hi, Well in the shade you don't have a lot of options on evergreens. I would suggest you look at yews because they are relatively shade-tolerant and can be sheared to any height. They also come in a number of varieties, including some low spreaders.
