Can you turn the picture right side up? My first guess is Ligustrum or Viburnum.

A close up of a leaf might be helpful. And where is this located?

south louisiana. i took it with my phone and didn't realize it posted sideways. oops. i'm not sure how to turn it. it's not ligustrum or viburnum. i wish i had a closeup, but the neighborhood police patrol was looking at me like i was nuts and there was a car behind me that was annoyed by my slowing down.

i would like to use this same tree to put in front of my neighbors wood fence.

is it a laurel?

the topleaves are sort of yellow and it's definitely evergreen

with just the distant pic of the shrub and no close-up of foliage, my w.a.g. would be some type of euonymous.
if it is that, you probably don't really want it.

It is Sweet Viburnum (Viburnum odoratissimum).

Here is a link that might be useful: Viburnum odoratissimum: Sweet Viburnum
