Planter ideas for front of house

Looking for feedback on our plan to provide some privacy for the front window for our house that is just off the street.

South facing window in zone 10b that gets (almost) full sunlight but due to the eve of the house more like partial sunlight. Calabasas California where the summers get hot hot hot. Old house built 1949 in the MCM style.

We have some bamboo-type blinds but want more coverage and something more pleasant to look out from the window than pavement, so we’re thinking a long (12’ long x 2’ deep x 2’ height) redwood planter box, painted black with a row of podocarpus macrophyllus (5 or 6) to form a hedge.

Any and all critiques welcome and appreciated!
