Hello! My first post. Is this hedge plant a Privet? Thank you!

Hard to tell from the photo. Are the leaves arranged on the stem so that they are opposite one another? That might indicate privet (but boxwood is that way also). If they are alternate, then it might be a type of non-spiny holly.

Can you show a close up of a leaf?

Looks more like box from the habit.
