This year’s SDHS Garden Tour highlights a select set of gardens in La Mesa, an area rich in horticultural history. 

Get inspired on our self-guided tour of eight stunning private La Mesa gardens. Visit gardens with colorful and exciting plants, found and collected art, and unique designs - all well suited to our Southern California climate. The tour features gardens high on the hills of Mount Helix and in hidden valleys complete with streams, waterfalls, custom art and more. Garden owners have used creative plant displays and landscape techniques to transform challenging terrain into comfortable garden spaces.  With a variety of styles and tastes, and gardens sized from small to large, this year’s gardens will dazzle your eyes and stimulate your imagination.

The tour features local artisans selling their hand-crafted art. Watch artists create paintings of the gardens and purchase cherished take-home treasures.
