Palm Diversity - I've given enough tours on our beautiful palm plantation that I know that viewing over 10 000 palms and over 30 different varieties can be overwhelming for those that don't know anything about all the different palms we have available. I am going to be offering Palm Diversity Packages with clear descriptions of what to expect of each palm. It doesn't have to be expensive ... these groupings of palms will all be small, but as you likely know, things grow very well here in Southern Baja. It is the one thing that I've noticed ... people have one or two palms in mind (often Bismarcks or Cuban Royals), but really ought to be getting 10 or 20 different types. Who wouldn't want 10 or 20 different varieties of palms on their property? Free washingtonians are fine, but having planted some real exotic palms, the future you will feel very smug.

Check out our website for clear directions to our plantation ... wobbling around a palm plantation with over 30 varieties is never a waste of time ... - Dean Mcquillen, todossantos1 [- at -] hotmail.com, palms.mx, 612.133.0311, Nepo: 612.152.6758 Todos Santos

Many Thousands Of Palms - Come visit us, there is clear direction to find us on our website with the link below, just click on the 'Contact Us' button on the site.

We've fantastic variety (over 30 different types of palms & cycads) and we've palms of all sizes - from palms you could bring home in the back seat of your car to 50' tall monsters. We can help with or do your landscape design, guide you to what palms are suitable for your property, and we can move massive specimens with our crane-truck.

Schedule a tour ... there are worst things to do than walk around a beautiful palm plantation. Call either Dean, 612.133.0311 or Nepo, 612.152.6785 - Dean Mcquillen, todossantos1 [- at -] hotmail.com, palms.mx, 612.133.0311 - Dean, Todos Santos

De Arquitectos - We always have some home repair specified, any idea to develop or start a new project.

It is important to respect for the environment, both natural and urban styles and reasoned use of natural resources - Eraida Duarte, dearquitectos [- at -] live.com.mx, 6121450859, Baja California Sur
