I want to plant some yard foliage, something that will grow enormous, huge, completely overtake a section of my yard so I don't have to see my neighbors anymore. I'll let it grow wild but want something tall and dense that needs no attention and grows fast in a tropical environment. Suggestions?

Trifids. Watch out when they're ripe, but that may take care of your neighbor problems.

Bamboo grows like a mad dog but can also spread around the neighborhood if not kept in check.

Here in the transition zone (Mid-Atlantic) arborvitae is commonly used.

Privet is another, but occasionally can stand a renewal pruning (down to a foot or 2, but recovers very quickly)...but it gets tall and is probably cheap

Holly is the best visual/noise/wind barrier going. $$$ for big'uns

I have no idea how any of these plants would fare in your climate.

Sorry.

If you poke around the net I'm sure you could find some more stuff, perhaps better acclimated to Fla........

You could try bamboo. Just don't expect to ever get rid of it though.
