Roger Reynolds Nursery was founded in 1919, on 15 acres of beautiful virgin land in Menlo Park, California. The nursery still has part of the beautiful redwood grove, where one can feel the spirit of the place 85 years ago.

Today, Reynold’s grand-daughter Sally Halstead showcases the nursery’s beautiful garden, redwood grove, and two stores on the current 2.5 acres. The friendly staff provide the best service and selection in the Menlo Park area.

This photo of giant chess, on display at Reynolds Nursery, depicts a popular attraction that home owners and landscapers are building into backyards. There are countless ways to develop a 64 square chessboard in the backyard, patio, poolside, or anywhere you have a 8×8 or larger space.

A 25″ giant chess set is not too big or too small. It’s designed to be a good median size that is not too cumbersome, and is comfortable to play while walking between the pieces.
