Does anyone know if this is strictly a hedge, or did they put in a fence? If it's a fence, what is growing on it and how can I duplicate this for my yard?

What kind of siding does it have?

The house siding is cedar, sorry it took so long to respond I missed this series of questions.
The hedge is a privet. It has a pool fence within it. The privet is two rows of plants with the fence in the center.
Becky is correct, I would trim the privet and boxwoods three times a year.

Oh how I love this roofline, the shingles, the crisp white trim and the idea of a secret garden beyond the tall hedges!

I probably overuse this image, but this is a true dream home for me. It simply oozes charm.

Not all fences have to be made of wood or metal. I've always had a thing for hedges with gates in them — they're so whimsical.
Becky Harris added this to Shingle Style: From 1874 to the Present
This Shingle Style farmhouse is my cottage dream home! It really doesn't get more charming than this.
