Hello axtell21, thanks for your comment. It does look like the variegated weigela, but it's actually the variegated red twig dogwood, Cornus alba 'Elegantisima' - a really beauty. More on this terrific plant from Monrovia here:

Good luck with your project! Robert

Hi Cory, thanks for the question. Those are daylily plants, not ornamental grasses. We planted two types, Hyperion and Autumn Prince. Hope this helps. Robert

I'm sorry, I don't. They are standard spacing for this type of pre-made picket fence. My guess is 2 1/2 - 3 inch spacing. This is a pretty standard off the shelf fence, not custom at all.

Good luck!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Billy Goodnick added this to Give Curb Appeal a Self-Serving Twist
A narrow strip of grass leads the eye to a uniform massing of daylilies here. The rustic wood fence not only serves as a backdrop for these perennials, but divides the property into public and semiprivate spaces. The inner plants are arranged en masse, blocking the view of the curb from the house without being unneighborly.
