need a fast growing privacy plant option

We can’t stand our neighbors and need a fast growing privacy plant option. It’s a small space along a wrought iron fence with only about a foot of planting area that spans the length of the fence. The fence is about 15 feet long and only 3.5 feet tall. We’re in Southern California on a lake and the area gets mostly shade with minimal afternoon sun exposure. Please help! I’d like something that lasts throughout the year and at maturity reaches about 4-6 feet. Ideas?

I have listed several articles for you with some help and possible plantings.
You may want to consider some Dwarf Conifers, as they will offer year round interest.
Visit some local garden centers for more ideas.
