Hello IN_Travelers47906 Thank you for your nice review. Cindy and I are proud of our and our staffs results. Hope to see you again in the Future, You ever told you or where ever you understood that we actually replaced any native forests is a out and out LIAR and knows nothing about what he says. He is probably Stupid as well. When Cindy and I purchased the property in 1999 is was a small cattle ranch with 40 head of cows. We did have to cut down ONE tree but that was all. I purchased the 10 acre nursery owned by Los Suenos Resort, it took 137 truck loads of trees and plants to get them to the gardens. we planted over 300 trees (that are now in full bloom) and 10's of 1,000's of plants Please do not believe everything you hear or read. thanks again David Stannard PS if you know who lied about the gardens ,please put me in touch with him.
