The hedge is comprised of Photinia Trees (Red Tip) and Dodonaea Shrubs. They were alternated and planted every 30".

Can you tell me who made the fire pit?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Beyond the French doors is the master suite retreat, an outdoor lounge with ample plush seating and its own fire pit and hot tub (not visible, at left). The wall of green behind were 15-gallon plants that matured to this lushness over the course of the project.
Debra Prinzing added this to Privacy Screening Made Pretty
Rather than a solid fence, how about a planted enclosure that feels like a green tapestry? Generously scaled teak armchairs and a love seat are situated around a modern fire table, and those who sit here feel protected by the tall, leafy hedging.More:Privacy Please: Outdoor Walls12 Great Fences and GatesThe Perfect Poolside Landscape
