The vine to the left is a Ficus pumila or Creeping Fig to the right is a pyracantha trained as a hedge.

Do you have any info on how to train the hedge as you have shown. Any website or info that you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

What can I do to protect my patio furniture and outdoor cushions?

Ronique Gibson
When you say 'protect' are you meaning from the elements? From sun exposure, or from soil?

To protect against harsh sun exposure, it is best to remove cushions when not using them as fabrics can fade, especially darker ones.

To protect from dirt consider using lawn furniture covers when not in use. (These could also be used to protect against the sun- but some fading could still occur)

To clean cushions, use a mild detergent/water and a coarse brush to remove dirt and then let air dry outside.

Time it takes to grow - About how long does it take for the creeping vine to grow 5 feet?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This landscape design's garden arches and pathways remind me of the Chateau's Garden Cottages, which are grouped around a courtyard adjacent to the pool.
Frank Organ added this to Climbing Plants Suit Small Gardens
This garden exemplifies a good use of the two main groups of plants that can be used to cover and decorate walls. Wall shrubs, such as the Pyracantha forming the dramatic garden archway, tend to be slower growing than the other group — the climbers. Climbers can be divided into free climbers, such as ivy, that use aerial roots to self-attach, and clingy climbers, such as clematis, which need some sort of exterior support (like a trellis) to cling to with their tendrils or leaves.
Samantha Schoech added this to Color Guide: How to Use Yellow Ocher
A more muted version of the color with a red tile roof adds instant Mediterranean cred.
