I believe these were custom made by a sculptor. I wish I could tell you more. Thanks for the question.

No, it is Pennsylvania Bluestone that is twenty years old and has a weathered look.

What type of trees are these and where can I get this door? - Are there actual panes of glass or a type of plastic in the door or is it just open with nothing between what looks like iron work?

They are Emerald Arborvitae. The door was custom made. I would imagine you could order one somewhere online...I'm just not sure where.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Two rams guard this entry point in an Italian garden. Historically, Italian gardens were full of well-placed statues and fountains.

Look closely at this photo. It's possible the whole composition is an illusion. Is that a glimpse of a secret garden through the "gate," or is that a divided light door glazed with mirror reflecting the greenery along the edge of the path? Nice trick, eh? (I love the "guardian" goats flanking the door/gate. They add a whimsical touch, making what might otherwise be an intimidating facade very approachable.)

Love mirrors used in the garden this way. I want to do this to our fences. It "blows holes" through visual barriers and lengthens sight lines dramatically, making the space feel exponentially larger. The illusion becomes even stronger if the fence is covered in vines.
