Most likely a type of boxwood.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Backyard Bliss: Have a Master Plan
Lovely and formal - this yard is also about providing lovely views from inside the house.
Make the lawn sunken. Two "area rugs" of lush, green grass feel like sunken, private rooms. The overall effect may be a trick of the eye (trompe l'oeil) created by the clipped boxwood that frames and defines each carpet of grass. Notice how the boxwood balls punctuate the doorways and create the visual sensation of entering a sunken space. The elevated fire pit at the center of the pathway is unexpected, changing the levels used elsewhere in this setting. Altogether pleasing, these spaces are private and inviting.
