What Type of Bushes

JHelm added on July 4, 2011 | Answered

What are the bushes that seem to always grow on the side of a house, probably 4' tall? I think, not sure, they look like some species of juniper, but if so, what kind? Oh, they also have kind of thin branches too, and sometimes people square them to look better.
