The low-growing white flowers are Snow-In-Summer, Cerastium tomentosum. Is that the plant to which you are referring?

Thanks, they are made of steel and allowed to rust naturally. A local craftsman welded them for us.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Frank Organ added this to Shape and Pattern Set Gardens' Tone
Using Simple Geometric ShapesThe type of pattern you use as the basis of your garden plan will depend on its suitability to the site, considering levels, views and the style of the building that the garden will adjoin. The simplest of all shapes in garden design is the square or rectangle, as house walls and boundaries usually suggest a 90-degree pattern. The use of a single type of shape produces a sense of movement. In this design, it moves our eyes through the garden to the front door.
