English Ivy but beware, it is very invasive.

LOL, and I just read the "neighbor's invasive plant thread" advising people not to plant Wisteria and English Ivy. Whatever you do plant, make sure it won't grow or self-seed onto your neighbor's property. What hardiness zone do you live in?

You mean Confederate jasmine? I thought about suggesting that, but she said no flowers.

Ivy sounds like it would be your best bet. There used to be a chain-link fence covered in ivy in a town I used to live in, and it looked great. If you're going to mow both sides, that would keep it in check.

Bougainvillea is a fairly common choice for fences in S. California, but it has flowers and I don't think that you can use a hedge trimmer.
