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
De Arquitectos - We always have some home repair specified, any idea to develop or start a new project.
Sometimes it is easier to bring all these ideas to paper and then to reality with the help of an architect, who with sensitivity and ability to understand your needs, balancing the space and function of your activities, manages to land your concept.
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
