What is the post spacing on this fence? How are the horizontal boards attached to the posts? - I am curious if a 6' post spacing could work without any intermediate vertical support in the middle. Also how are the boards fastened to the posts?

How many inches are the small, med, and large boards? Did you use pressure treated wood for the posts? Looks like you either added a trim to the pressure treated post? What is the distance between the pressure treated posts? WE LOVE the fence! How tall is the fence?

These look to be Cordyline australis. There are a number of cultivars with red foliage — 'Red Star', 'Purple Tower', 'Inner Glow'. But hopefully this should be enough to get you started.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

These red succulents follow the rhythm of the fence posts, such that the horizontal wood planks become a backdrop for the plants.
Debra Prinzing added this to Teach Your Landscape Rhythm
A sequence of plants and architecture is visually pleasing to the eyes, which read it as a pattern. Here, a maroon, spiky Cordyline plant is aligned with a fence section in a rhythmic repetition that looks contemporary and balanced. Put three of them together for a thoroughly appealing installation. The silvery-blue ground cover is called Senecio vitalis, a succulent.
Annie Thornton added this to Great Design Plant: Cabbage Tree
Botanical name: Cordyline australis (syn. Dracaena australis)Common names: Cabbage Tree, New Zealand Cabbage Palm, Grass Palm, Green DracaenaUSDA zones: 8 to 11 (find your zone)Water requirement: Moderate to regularLight requirement: Full sunMature size: 20 to 30 feet tall; 6 to 12 feet wideBenefits and tolerances: Drought and coastal tolerant; flowers and fruit attract hummingbirds and butterfliesSeasonal interest: Evergreen foliage; flowers in summerWhen to plant: Plant in spring to establish before winterThe straight species of Cordyline australis has green foliage and can reach massive sizes. Colorful cultivars, like C. australis 'Dark Star' (shown in this planting by Shades of Green Landscape Architecture), have become especially popular in cultivation.
