I am sorry for this delayed reply to your gardening question. We are transitioning to a new Q&A system and your question was unfortunately lost in the transition. I have discovered it now and hope this reply is not too late to be of help.

Your question about distance from a home to plant a Mexican Fan Palm is one that has no specific answer. If you plant it closer than 6 feet the fronds may rub the house or eaves as the plant grows. Other than that we don't really worry about palm trees causing foundation problems and certainly not if it is at least 6 feet away.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
