Which soil/compost needed for growing Thuja Smaragd Emerald in planters?

I am planning to buy 4 Thuja Smaragd Emarald root ball trees to grow in planters on my patio as a privacy screen. What type of soil or compost do I need to use in the planters? I am a novice gardener and all help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
I am also thinking that maybe bamboo would be a better choice. I would prefer Thuja's but any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I have 2 planters with external measurements of 100cm width x 50cm depth x 39cm height. I was planning to plant 2 Thuja emerald root ball 160/180cm in each. Are these big enough for 2 Thuja's or would it be best to plant bamboo in them? I want to make a privacy screen on my patio to restrict the view of my neighbours new extension window. I am not worried if they do not grow much in height but need them to grow outwards a little only as the top of the fence from the top of the planter is about 150cm.
If bamboo is the best option which type is the best for a patio planter? Thanks.
