Trying to match some plantings

What kind of plantings are these? I'm guessing some kind of yew or juniper, then what kind of grass is this? Sorry trying to match some for my home.

That's a Juniper... and the grasses have varieties by the hundreds... the best thing to do with that is divide it to ensure it matches...

thanks for the advice. little weary about splitting grasses because the size will be off but that is probably the best way?

You took the pictues a little far away for detail look at them. The second picture is fuzzy. If you want more grasses that match, just divide the root ball in the fall...in a nursery setting, you could get more than you wanted out of the root ball...For example, just take your spade and make four parts to the grass and transplant all of them. The other plant looks like juniper, but you only have a far away picture. You can aways match is correctly by rooting it indoors? Just youtube rooting evergreens; you'll probably find more there than you will here on rooting.

I would just cut the grasses in half, leaving the front half in place so it doesn't look too different then t-plant the other half as desired... you should be able to divide grasses most any time that isn't too hot, but take the trouble to get some 'good compost' to fill in the backside hole of the one you leave, and in the new hole where you place the t-plant...
Then thoroughly soak the both of them for a couple of days then just keep them moist thereafter...

If you've never done this before, I would just do one for now , then if you see success do a couple more next week... good luck...
