Need ideas for planting on East side of house

I have a long, narrow stretch of available/non-landscaped land on the East side of my house. It's roughly 12x100 feet. Creating a pseudo natural fence is desirable but not required. Likewise, utilizing native plants and/or fruit bearing plants is desirable but not required. There is persistent deer population in the area, so if I do berries, I've mentally given up any chance of actually eating them. I've thought about grapes or kiwi, due to their vining habit but am concerned about overall sunlight. I've also thought about currants (not sure why, they seem vigorous). Or just a wall of Rhodys. Or some evergreen huckleberries. Nothing is striking me as a 'must'. I'd prefer to not wait +5-8 years for it to take shape. 3 bedroom windows look down to this area. Otherwise it's a tad outta-sight-outta-mind. I know this is fairly random - but - got any ideas? Thanks.
