Looks like boxwood. They are the most popular shrub bought in the Midwest. There are several varieties of boxwood so I'm not sure which type these are. I have several different kinds and just love them. Very easy shrubs to grow and so pretty. When planting, make sure they are in an area that is protected from harsh winter winds and are mulched with 2 to 3 inches of mulch. When it's hot and you haven't had much rain, make sure you water them. They don't like wet feet so water deeply when there hasn't been much rain. If planted in the fall, make sure to water throughout the winter when temps. are in the 40's. I also spray mine with wilt proof in the late fall which helps their leaves keep their moisture throughout the winter.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Jo Simmons added this to How to Prepare Your House for a Home Swap
Smarten up the garden. Tidy up the yard and mow the lawn if you have one. Water potted plants and leave instructions to repeat this if necessary. Make sure keys to any sheds or outbuildings that contain garden furniture or games are available and clearly marked.
Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to How to Create a Zen-Inspired Garden
What about the plant selection? Loud and lively colors, while lovely and at home in other areas of the garden, rarely earn a place in the Zen garden. In their absence, the eye instead contemplates shape, texture and placement. Foliage color is generally varying shades of green, soft blues or darker reds. Strongly variegated foliage may be too abrupt for gardens in this genre. The thoughtful blending of shapes and textures adds interest while peacefully engaging the mind. If you doubt your ability to do this yourself, hiring a good designer can be a worthwhile investment.In the photo shown here, notice how the varying sizes and similar shapes of the boxwood (Buxus sp., USDA zones 5 to 9; find your zone) pull your eye effortlessly through the space. They form a solid relationship with one another as well as with the path, as they interestingly and unexpectedly cut into it.
