Inspiration needed.

My only hesitation about laurel (and it has many good points) is that I've found that for it to look good it needs to be quite deep and Kc has little ones who will benefit from as big a garden as possible

Don't plant leylandii pleeeeeeeeeeease - you'll live to regret it, for so so many reasons

Sand

But you can buy sharp sand from builder's merchants.

Beech or hornbeam - you can clip that quite close so that it's narrow and you don't lose too much of your garden - and if you clip it close at the right time of year (August) it will keep it's autumn leaves through the winter - thus still hiding the fence in the winter months.

Sand

It depends where it comes from - some builder's sand used to come from dredging the sea bed and contained salt which would not be good at all for seedlings. 

If I were you I'd try to find out where the sand comes from. 

Good luck

.... or do young cockerels sound like they have sore throats? 

Sometimes they do KEF ... and sometimes they grow out of it, and sometimes they don't

I love hearing a cockerel crowing in the morning - it doesn't wake me, probably because I grew up hearing it
