Hey guys, I'm looking for something that can give me a fairly full screen for a fence line that is 6ft high by 100ft long and flat, then it turns a corner and will be another 30ft on a slope, I would perfer something that grows at least 8-10 ft high and pretty wide, I have a kid and dogs so i can't have thorns or anything toxic, I would like evergreen if possible, I want something that grows pretty fast preferably but not a necessity trimming a lot is not that big of a deal, I have been looking quite closely at green giants but on not sure
Please help

Green Giant is likely not going to perform well in interior California. You need heat tolerant. What about Tecate Cypress.

Here is a link that might be useful: Tecate cypress comments

Do those have soft foliage, or is it more of a rough desert plant?
