If its fast growing, you will be forever having to clip it to keep it under control.
Yew or holly can be clipped into a nice evergreen hedge. Holly has the advantage it deters people from getting too close. You could probably get pot grown plants a couple of feet high, and they will grow about a foot a year.
You can get trough grown instant hedge, ready done at a decent height but it will be expensive.
I have not used these so this is not a recommendation, just a suggestion.
