From the way the tree is pruned it looks like a Japanese black pine.

Doors were refinished and original to the previous owner. Commissioned at the time through local BC native artisan, artist unknown. An option to consider is to contact a gallery like Douglas Reynolds for an opportunity to have something commissioned.

Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with the exact species, it looks like a pamas grass. You can connect with Landscaping Company Arcon Water Designs for further details.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Insert blood grass into a water garden for a shot of color from both the planting and the reflection it creates.

Wonderful color contrast with red grass versus white snow covered patio sections and water in back. My guess is that this is a "near" first snow scenario, as the grass may likely go dormant/tan colored after freezing for any length of time. It would however still be beautiful in in it's tan state.
