Hello raku2day, thanks for your question. Those are evergreen Alberta Spruce trees. Picea glauca 'Conica' - usually sold as very small "Christmas Like" trees as a house gift around the holidays. The homeowner adds them to the garden each year and these are most likely 10-12 years old in this location.

Good luck with your project!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Make a focal point. A large glazed urn plays off all the shades of green in this garden full of conical evergreen trees and rounded boxwood shrubs.
Becky Harris added this to Great Design Plant: Boxwood
Planting notes:Make sure your soil is loose and drains well.Space the plants 3 to 5 feet apart.Dig a hole that is as deep as the root ball's height.Loosen the root ball and place it in the hole. Cover it with about 2 inches of dirt. Mulch to keep in moisture, but do not let the mulch touch the trunk of the shrub.These plants have very shallow roots, so make sure you water moderately. Do not let them soak in standing water.There are many varieties and hybrids of the Buxus sempervirens species; this one is an American variety, subtly looser in form and with slightly bigger leaves.
Debra Prinzing added this to Give Your Garden an Arresting Point of View
A circular focal point. I love this study in green, with a single accent of white from the flowering dogwood tree. Rather than using linear elements to draw the eye toward the focal point, the designer placed the focal point at the center of a circle so that everything flows outward from that lovely jade green urn. This design technique is inspired by radial balance, much like the spokes of a wheel or the ripples that occur when a pebble is dropped into water. The strong visual impact of rounded forms — the lawn, the curved band of stone, the clipped boxwood balls — encircle the central focal point and makes this garden feel restful and serene. Simply sublime!

Botanical name: Buxus sempervirens Common name: Boxwood USDA zones: 5 to 9 (find your zone) Water requirement: This plant is quite drought tolerant. Light requirement: Partial shade to full sun Mature size: Technically, boxwood can get to about 10 feet high and 10 feet wide, but it is a very slow-growing plant. Benefits and tolerances: Boxwood is somewhat drought tolerant and should not be left sitting in standing water due to its short roots. If you are in a hot climate, try to give it partial shade; if you are closer to the northern zone limits, give it full sun. Seasonal interest: This is an evergreen plant that has very glossy deep green leaves year-round. When to plant: Ideally in the fall, but you can plant it in mid to late spring, after the last frost.

The color palette is clear here - green, and lots of it. Aside from the pop of white in the tree this is an entirely green landscape - which is very chic right now. Where it lacks color, the designer has made up for it in interesting shapes and textures. Who says monochrome can't be beautiful?
