Getting A Peek At La Mesa's Hidden Gems

LA MESA -- Tucked in away from the streets, down quiet lanes and in shaded ravines, the gardeners of La Mesa are creating some amazing places.

Dozens of people bought tickets to have a few moments enjoying the labors of these master gardeners. From collections of succulents and native plants to Asian influenced motifs, the gardens on this tour offered an amazing range of styles, all calming and zen-ful places to visit.

While the style of each garden was different, there was one constant lesson to be learned. Each of these homeowners had added immense value to their homes simply by creating an environment -- outside the walls of the home -- that created a sense of place for each house.

There is much debate about how much a new kitchen or swimming pool may add to a home's value. But there is no debate that paying attention to the entire property can add a special value of its own.

The event, put on by the San Diego Horticultural Society and La Mesa Beautiful, was dedicated to La Mesa's Centennial celebration.
