That's an historical estate built nearly a century ago. I do not know where to get such doors. Best of luck.

Hi Jim, we have know idea who manufactured these doors. This picture is from The Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills and it was built in the early 1900's. Sorry couldn't be more help. You have great taste!!!

It's just fake grass - synthetic lawn. You'll have to find a local supplier. We pulled together the "pebbles", the synthetic lawn, the pots and the plantings for this space, but it's the uber-talented Ray Goins who carved the edge of the lawn into that fantastic shape. This was one of Ray's spaces at the Luxe Greystone Mansion Show House last December. The "pebbles" are by EIS Studios; the great pot is from Asian Ceramics.

It's synthetic lawn cut into that shape. Look for a local synthetic lawn supplier.

Steel Windows and Doors USA
Judging from that beautiful green patina, those are true divided bronze steel frame sections with either 1/4" monolithic glass or 5/8 dual pane IGU. We specialize in all types of steel doors and have done numerous projects which incorporate similar doors. All of our bronze doors are thermally broken and are available in a narrow site-line version which has become extremely popular. I have attached some photos of some projects we have done with similar grid pattern and design. Hope this helps!

The pebble stools are from EIS Studio in Venice Beach, CA: Price varies with size and finish...

What Houzz contributors are saying:

From garden to art installation. Sculpture gardens have become very popular in public spaces and private grounds. They provide the perfect exterior viewing theater.This combination of stone-shaped seating over meandering artificial grass is a real art installation and could be found at any modern art gallery. Surely this must be one of the most maintenance-free gardens you could design, but it still has such great visual appeal.
J. Peterson Garden Design added this to Is It Time to Consider Fake Grass?
Where to use faux grass:Home putting greensRooftop gardens that cannot support the weight of traditional lawnsAreas that have inhospitable conditions for growing real grassEasily cleanable areas for small petsWhere you want the look of grass without the maintenance and water bills of real grassAnywhere you want to reduce your carbon footprint
So if you’re intending to design or redesign a garden, before you get your spade out, grab your scissors and take a leaf out of Matisse’s book: Start by designing with cutouts.Better still, before you start, immerse yourself in Matisse’s wonderful cutouts at the Tate Modern or MoMA exhibition.More: Shape and Pattern Set Gardens’ Tone
