If you're asking about the red-leaved hedge, that's Rhus typhina (staghorn sumac), a northeastern North American shrub/small tree.

If you're asking about the trimmed evergreens in the far background, I think it's either a yew of some kind or, given the olive-green color of the leaves, English boxwood.

The untrimmed shrubs may or may not be evergreen; without a closeup of the plants and leaves, it's very difficult to make an ID.
