Creating privacy

Until recently we had a very private back garden, but a new neighbour has removed trees from his side of the 5ft boundary fence.which now means we have a gap of about 6 ft from which we can see his house and he can obviously see ours.   I would like to plant something which will fill that gap quickly, I have a small ceanothus which I am sure will eventually help but at the moment it all looks very bare and strange.  Any suggestions?

    It's not thebest time of year to try to get things to grow up and hide the view. Could you put up a length of that brushwood type screening supported on poles and grow climbers over it until something more permanent takes over?

    Good thinking!  Thats a great idea. Off to local garden centre tomorrow.  Thanks
