The fastest growing hedging conifer available is the well known Leylandii, or Leyland Cypress that makes for an excellent hedge. Rich green in colour, and growing around 3ft per year in height, this will very quickly fill out to a dense screen.

Plant a new hedge of leylandii with between 60 to 100cm between each plant, closer spacing will give a quicker results, but you'll get a hedge just as good if you set them 100cms apart, it may just take an extra year to fill out. If you're planning a taller hedge of 4 metres (12ft) or more you should always go for the wider spacing between each plant. 

A good Leylandii hedge will become a living wall and have the following benefits:
