Those were poured in place walls. The holes are a result of form ties that are used in making the forms. The smooth finish is the result of using a smooth inside face on the form. Some of the walls on this project the walls were then " sacked" - adding of a smooth finish layer after the forms were removed.

thank you. I live in S. NM and it's hot during the summer months and need a tall grass that weathers the weather.

The plants look like soft rush (Juncus effusus); notice they are growing in water.

I'm sorry that we did not get an answer to you sooner. I'm glad that you came up with a successful solution. I just spent three weeks in Italy and had a wonderful time. Where is your farmghouse located?

oh, no apologies needed, I did not mean to sound as if I was complaining. The restoration work took us 16 months; along the way we grabbed all the help we could from on-line sources :-) finally in June 2011 we moved in.

We are living in Piedmont region (North West Italy). Where were you visiting?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lauren Bonar Swezey added this to Plant a Pocket Garden
A series of cutouts filled with dramatic rushes soften a stark wall.
Annie Thornton added this to Your Garden: High Design the Easy Way
Unique mass plantings. If you have less space, or just want a fresh take on mass plantings, consider massing with container gardens. When it comes to massing, the sum is greater than its parts. Here you can see how both can act simultaneously. The planters may separate the individual plants, but stepping back to admire the entire space reveals a solid, linear mass of grass. Next: Browse more landscape design photos See more outdoor living ideas
Becky Harris added this to Ornamental Grasses in the Landscape
Here another strong line is created using grasslike sedges contained in planters. The shape of each clump of grass is a good contrast to all of those straight lines, yet they still add vertical elements that punctuate the wall.
Repetition is not limited to architectural elements; landscape can of course play a part. In this example, tall grasses in square metal planters march down the side of a house. The green softens the gray of the corrugated panels and concrete.
The repeated plantings of soft rush (Juncus effusus) alongside this walkway and steps are brought to the fore because they’re set against beige concrete panels. The neutral color provides a blank canvas to plant against — so much better than the browns of traditional fencing or the terra-cotta color of brick walls.It is worth remembering that green is generally considered a neutral color in garden design, so it is no wonder that it combines so well with beige.

Giulietti Schouten Architects Nov 2012 This is an acid etched finish. Although it has a very smooth appearance it does have a very fine grit to the surface which is why we like it. It has a much cleaner look than a tradition broom finished concrete and it is a more honest/natural looking concrete than a colored or stamped product. We use this finish quite often in Oregon where we have a lot of rain. As the previous entry noted, you do, however, need to be cautious on any surface in a wet situation.
