My guess is that it is a Jumbo Ostrich Fern.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Annie Thornton added this to Your Garden: High Design the Easy Way
Modern. If a modern landscape is what you strive for, think of the plant material as just another texture, material, or color to incorporate into your landscape. The linear swaths of green juxtaposed with the industrial concrete walls complete the perfect minimal garden.
More often in contemporary gardens, hardscaping can be the overriding design feature, as with these simple concrete retaining walls.The plantings are used to emphasize the clean lines of the walls. Grasses can be perfect to achieve this. The Festuca grasses used here become low-maintenance ground covers as they grow, requiring minimal irrigation or tending.

Not a fan of the plan selection for our garden but interesting lines and colour blocking. Possibly too simplistic for our yard though and I'd probably want more variation.
