What plants are used as the border? Also what is the name of the vine?

AMS Landscape Design Studios, Inc.

The boarder plants are:
Dwarf Myrtle - Myrtus communis 'Compacta
(Spanish Lavender is behind it)

Notes from Monrovia -

- Popular, compact tightly branched evergreen shrub with creamy-white flowers has fragrant foliage when crushed. Extremely useful and dependable as a low hedge and foundation planting.
- Slow grower to 2 to 3 ft. tall and wide.
- Full Sun
- Blooms in Spring

Overall it is a great small hedge that is tight / dense and can be easily maintained since it is a slow grower. For taller hedges, try some of the various Boxwood varieties. They tend to grow taller and a little faster.

Hope this helps.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Marianne Lipanovich added this to Crazy for Fruit Trees
Most citrus, and some other fruit trees, can be grown in pots, which gives you plenty of flexibility when it comes to deciding where to place them. Ask for dwarf varieties at your local nursery and look for a deep container at least 18 inches in diameter.
Terra-cotta Terra-cotta pots are classic and come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Terra-cotta's subtle color works well with all flower and foliage hues and looks natural in a garden setting. Something to consider when the seasons change: If you live in an area where temperatures go below freezing, you’ll want to empty or bring terra-cotta pots inside to avoid cracking.
These large geranium-filled terra-cotta pots backed by overhanging citrus trees are more than just a garden feature; they're an integral part of the design — the terra-cotta pots reflect the tiles edging the paving. Finding an appropriate container and the right plants for the space is vital.It can be tempting to fill spaces with many small planters and pots, filled with many different plants, but this can overwhelm a space.
Dilemma 2: Large pots can overwhelm a space.These oversize terra-cotta pots are perfectly suited to the style and architecture of the home and scaled to provide plenty of room for the fruit trees. They could, however, completely dominate the space.Low-growing plants have been added around them as a simple solution, creating the effect that the pots are in a larger garden. This softens the transition between pavers and pots, effectively ‘grounding’ them in the space.Tip: Keep plantings simple to avoid large pots’ overwhelming a space; keep the style of the containers in line with the home’s architecture and consider having the containers ‘emerge’ from ground covers or grasses.
