Thank you.
They are linear LED lights made by Jesco. They are mounted underneath the lip of the steel ring.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The long side elevation, seen here in a perpendicular view to the previous photo, reveals the glass in its entirety. Translucent glass (on the left side) is adjacent to the Cor-Ten, while to the right the glass becomes clear.
Frank Organ added this to Circle Round for Great Garden Design
In the previous examples we saw the practical uses of circles, but sometimes it can be interesting to use them purely as a decorative feature. There couldn't be a more stunning use than these sunken, lit circles within a very minimalistic landscape. The circles seem to echo the circular canopies of the mature deciduous trees and bring a completeness to a very simple scheme.
Eric Reinholdt, Architect added this to Design Workshop: How a Site Can Shape a Home
The barn stretches across the landscape. Both building and site are intentional, designed elements that support a story about cutting into and living within a site. Changes in elevation have been artfully handled; Cor-Ten steel retaining was used around the trees to link the landscape with the barn cladding. The length of the structure references the tobacco barns of New England. Almost an inversion of typical barn siding, the glazed walls open the large volume of the home to the site beyond. These gestures speak to the idea of a barn without relying on mimicry.
Steven Corley Randel, Architect added this to Light Your Landscape for Drama and Function
Highlight a well. Consider unusual uses of light within the landscape. Here, strip lights illuminate the perimeter of the sunken tree wells, giving new meaning to the term “pool light.”

Rout rain water to tree wells to better utilize runoff. Install a large storage tank with the homes gutter drains routed to it. Have the both the tanks over fill drain and the tanks outlet tied together. S whether on nt I has rained recently there will always be water for the tree wells and other landscaping, With overflow going first to the tree wells so even when tanks is full the trees get a shot at th water before draining off the property.
