Hi, The best plants for absorbing noise are conifers or evergreens. The upright ornamental juniper can work well for a a small border, if you want something taller you can use one of the pine trees such as Vanderwolf or Austrian. Both of these you can check out in the following guide and both would need supplemental water. Pages 18-21, https://catalog.extension.oregonstate.edu/em9136
