Is it japanese boxwood in the squares?

Isler Homes
It is English Dwarf Boxwood commonly referred to as true dwarf boxwood. Japanese boxwood would be a poor choice in this type of garden because it is fast growing and can get up to 8 ft tall.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Frank Organ added this to Geometry Roots Great Garden Design
Perhaps the simplest use of geometry and basic shapes in the garden is this very contemporary take on a French parterre. The overall square boundary is bordered with a line of clipped conifers echoing the central squares of evergreen "box" plants. We even have a "viewpoint" in the placement of the simple, classically designed bench.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Lay of the Landscape: French Garden Style
This small courtyard epitomizes the essence of French design, especially when viewed from above. All of the basics are here: striaght-lined geometric shapes, neatly trimmed hedges and shrubs, gravel for paving and a monochromatic color scheme. Design tip: In even the most formal of gardens, it's great to include one thing that doesn't quite fit the mold. In this landscape, the bench provides a one-of-a-kind element in the otherwise repetitive (in the best gardening sense) space, keeping it from seeming too sterile.
