While the posting designer appears to be located in Seattle, this project is titled "New Jersey Garden" so it's probably somewhere there.

Called skip laurel or cherry laurel, not sure about tree, perhaps crepe myrtle?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Frank Organ added this to Landscapes Take Shape With 3-D Thinking
We can clearly see in this planting scheme how the use of mass in the planting creates that feeling of enclosure.To create an area of planted mass, you don't have use evergreens exclusively. As a rule of thumb, designs typically consist of one-third evergreens to two-thirds deciduous plantings, or vice versa.
Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to 6 Suggestions for Harmonious Hardscaping
This front garden captures the essence and repetition of the allée but in an updated way that is within the realm of possibility for many. The designer has employed the concept of asymmetrical balance; one garden bed is larger than the other but is weighted to look equal. The stone pillar mimics the lamppost, bringing continuity to the space. Notice how the caladiums (Caladium sp, zones 9 to 10) are more prominent in the smaller bed on the right. Acting as a fulcrum, they balance the beds, making them visually pleasing. A carpet of ground cover in the foreground of each bed brings that additional dose of soothing continuity.If you are not confident in your ability to lay out bed lines that seem to flow effortlessly across your hardscape, consider employing the use of a garden hose. Stretch it across your walkway and create a serpentine or curved line that makes sense to you when viewed from different angles. It's easier to change the hose than to redig your bed lines.
Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to Unify Your Garden With a Common Thread
It is important to bring continuity to smaller spaces, as they can easily appear disjointed. Notice how the bed lines on both sides of this sidewalk continue a line so that the interruption is downplayed. If you are unsure about how to implement this concept, start by stretching a garden hose across your sidewalk or driveway until you discover a continuous line that pleases you.

This yard is an example of Asymmetrical Balance. Each plant is a different texture, shade and shape yet the yard is very balanced. This balance shows the natural beauty of nature that we can show within our homes. The mood is energetic and growing.

The designer has employed the concept of asymmetrical balance; one garden bed is larger than the other but is weighted to look equal. The stone pillar mimics the lamppost, bringing continuity to the space. Notice how the caladiums (Caladium sp, zones 9 to 10) are more prominent in the smaller bed on the right. Acting as a fulcrum, they balance the beds, making them visually pleasing. A carpet of ground cover in the foreground of each bed brings that additional dose of soothing continuity. If you are not confident in your ability to lay out bed lines that seem to flow effortlessly across your hardscape, consider employing the use of a garden hose. Stretch it across your walkway and create a serpentine or curved line that makes sense to you when viewed from different angles. It's easier to change the hose than to redig your bed lines. http://www.houzz.com/ideabooks/19020669?utm_source=Houzz&utm_campaign=u376&utm_medium=email&utm_content=gallery21
