Shadows Fem Yaupon Holly Trees

We are wanting to use this plant for a privacy fence between houses. 1) Do you have a picture of a full grown tree? 2) Do these trees need pruning? Some info says yes, others say they are great left naturally. 3) How far apart do you plant?

It should be spaced 8 to 10 feet apart.
