Privacy Hedge

(Question)

Hi, what are the best types of evergreen trees to plant for privacy?..my lot backs onto a school parking lot and currently there is a metal fence installed but I don’t haver any privacy. I thought maybe evergreen would be a good option but not sure how long they will take to grow. Ideally I’d like to have a 5-6 hedge. I live in Mississauga and have a 50′ lot. Thank you.
