Tree/Shrub Recommendations Please

I'm trying to complete a privacy screen along the back or my property, as my neighbor's hedge has become increasingly thin of late. I have 2 apple trees to the left and just planted a crab apple to the right, purplish foliage is somewhat visble. Now I'm trying to figure out what to plant in the middle. We've outline a circle that we plan to fill with pea gravel and have a fire pit in the center. We plan to put a pergola with maybe a bench swing in front of the gate, more in line with that hydrangea paniculata.Any suggestions for a smallish tree or large shrub to put in front of the gate, more forward than the row of apples so as not to block use of the gate. I don't want something that will compete with the apples. Something in the 12-15' range I think would work. Im also considering maybe a vigorius vine or climbing rose on the pergola instead. Pictures to come. Thank you!
