Yes the white variegated plants are Hosta. The evergreen hedge is Thuja occidentalis 'Smaragd'.

Thuja occidentalis 'Smaragd'. The way the foliage is arranged in a fan shape looks similar to the foliage of the Hinoki Cypress.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Frank Organ added this to Unsung Garden Hero: Fantastic Foliage
Lasting color. One of the most obvious attributes of the average leaf is that it is with us for a lot longer than the flower. This is truest of the evergreens, whose leaves remain on the plant from one to three years. Three layers of foliage present us here with a wall of greens — from the emerald green of the Thuja occidentalis through the golden young foliage of the trimmed Buxus to the shieldlike leaves of the variegated Hostas.
Beth Woodson and Kristy Harvey added this to Walkway Landscaping Rolls Out the Welcome Mat
For longer front walks, try incorporating different layers of height. Multiple heights add depth to a landscape and tall shrubs can mimic the effect of a beautiful gate.
Annie Thornton added this to Flood-Tolerant Native Trees for Soggy Soil
Arborvitae (Thuja occidentalis, zones 3 to 7) is a standby for hedges and windbreaks with its neat, symmetrical form and tightly packed needles, making it ideal for giving a formal look to poorly drained gardens. Though it's native from Manitoba and Minnesota through Quebec, there are isolated populations as far south as North Carolina. One of arborvitae's biggest draws is its variability; with some forms topping out at a mere 3 feet tall and others reaching a lofty height of 60 feet. Unless you're planting a dwarf cultivar, be sure to plant arborvitae well away from driveways, buildings, sidewalks and any other structures that they might eventually lift with their massive trunk and twisted roots.If you're after an evergreen with glossy leaves and bright red wildlife-attracting berries, look no further than the hollies. Yaupon holly (Ilex vomitoria, zones 7 to 10) and dahoon holly (Ilex cassine, zones 7 to 10) are excellent choices for the Southeast, while American holly (Ilex opaca, zones 5 to 10) will grow throughout most of the United States.
4. Plant wind-blocking hedges. If winds are an issue around your home, planting tall hedges or installing another wind-blocking feature (a fence, trees) on the north side of your home can help keep those strong winds at bay.
