It looks like the planter has a clumping type of bamboo planted in it. There are many varieties you can get and if you google clumping bamboo you will find lots of info on the subject and nurseries that sell it in your area. Here's a link

I hope this helps!

I believe that might be actually a light. Would be suprised you would need a vent.

On outside flooring what do you put on it that makes it shine. We live in florida and have stained our outdoor wood deck but it gets so hot you cannot walk on it and it never shines like yours. Thanks Colleen

Murphy's oil soap is great and no need to rinse it off I use it inside and outside on all my wood flooring works great plus helps preserve wood

What product was used for the table tops? - Love the look of this! Your design inspired me to do this: http://www.houzz.com/projects/303545/Elphinstone-Backyard-Project---Regina--Canada. I would like to finish off my project with a stone table top for the built in corner/end tables. Thanks for your time.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to 10 Ways to Bedeck Your Deck
Built-ins can also take it a few steps further and build them out for more cushy lounging.
Lily Gahagan added this to 50 Great Designs for a Garden Party
When you've got guests coming, seating is key. Built-in benches, dining chairs and an ottoman to perch on provide plenty of options on this inviting deck.
Vanessa Brunner added this to Readers' Choice: The Top 20 Patios of 2011
2. The wall surrounding this outdoor patio made this photo worth bookmarking for many Houzz users. Houzzers were inspired by the built-in planters and all of the seating that this practical wall provided.
1. Use one long bench for multiple seating areas. Make the most of your space by using a built-in bench long enough to span several seating areas. Vary the height of your bench so you can position an outdoor dining table at one end and make a lounge area at the other end.
5. CleaningTeak furniture needs to be cleaned at least once a year to remove dirt, dust and stains. This is something you can do yourself with a diluted household cleanser and a bristle brush. Ask your vendor which detergent you should use based on the finish you’ve chosen.
