This project is in the Bay Area, so it doesn't experience extreme weather conditions. I believe this wood is ipe, which you can either stain or allow to grey out and weather.

Rustic Brick and Stone
I believe you are talking about the Phormiums (New Zealand Flax) in front. They are pretty popular in CA, especially the Bay Area. There are a number of varieties, but these appear to be bronze. Phormium tenax 'Bronze' - I love the combination with the blue festuca.

Yes, these are a dwarf phormium. Lots of color options.

beautiful bones and purple stones
Probably blue oat grass, helichotricon sempervirens, or a blue fescue, festuca.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Amy Renea added this to Boardwalks Bridge the Gap to Nature
Your plant choices expand if you design a boardwalk low to the ground. In this case, you can pretty much work with plants of any height. Just don't impede foot traffic with aggressive, horizontal growers.
