What is the opaque fence made out of? - I need a privacy screen on my deck but want to let through the light. This would be perfect.

Plexiglass would be fine outdoors. The opaque panels look like polycarbonate. Google it.

Do you know what percentage of the light passes through?

I don't have the exact light % on this glass, however, translucent white glass is quite standard. There are options for laminate (which is the easiest to keep clean) or etched. Make sure to see samples as some glass can have a green tinge to it.

What roughly is the cost of this type of translucent fencing? Comparatively.

The door - I really like the entrance door. Could you share the manufacture of it?

If you're referring to the main entrance gates, those were custom made by the builder. Many door companies can custom make doors to order.

the pale green one looks like a Japanese Senkaki maple and the purple might be a flowering plum or 'thundercloud'?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

PolycarbonatePolycarbonate panels create screens that allow for light and privacy here. This is obviously not a natural material, but I love the opportunities these panels provide. With a modernist sensibility, mixing materials like these with materials in an older vernacular can be artfully done. Purists, hold your comments!
Fred Albert added this to Glass Doors That Welcome — and Protect Your Privacy Too
You can achieve that same sense of transition with a courtyard, which regulates both views and access. In this example the wall is translucent glass, and it was set back from the sidewalk behind a planting strip, softening the expanse. The front door is slatted, so it says “welcome” instead of “keep out.”
