I love them, too. Based on their shape and size, they may well be Stipa arundinacea, or New Zealand Wind Grass. Its colors lean more to the green and gold most of the year, but can redden this way in fall.

There are two grasses in the photo's foreground the larger red/orange color is Anemanthele lessoniana or New Zealand Wind Grass the small contrast blue grey is actually a sedge a Carex flacca or European Dune Grass.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

With a view like this who wouldn’t want to spend every evening in the garden? This large, rectangular firepit wrapped by a wooden bench provides a serene spot to enjoy the scenery.
Lily Gahagan added this to 16 Fire Pits to Fit Into Your Landscape
... Or enjoy the view right outside your back door, should you be lucky enough to have one.
