Hi Stephv1987,

The wood is actually Ipe! The natural color and lack of knots is a tale sign of Ipe but the designer actually mentioned it on a different picture of the same project. Ipe is an amazing wood that is highly resistant to mold, mildew, decay, and termites. It's a very dense very strong and heavy wood that requires a penetrating oil to maintain.

Maybe a planter box like this in front of the existing wall area to mask it? I don't love these plants.
