Essick - La Jolla Old World Garden 6 photos

A small garden in La Jolla was transformed from a dark space with old pavement and few plants, into a old world Mediterranean Garden. Potted citrus, a retaining wall with a built-in bench accented by a hand painted design plus candle cubbies, a fountain and flagstone with Creeping Thyme, create the overall style for the garden.

Essick - La Jolla Old World Garden

Before and after shot of the back yard space. A shady slope with little interest was revamped, to become a entertaining space with character and ambiance. The wall was later accented after construction was completed, with a hand painted Spanish motif, by Katie Gaines of Love Paper Paint. Mediterranean plants, potted citrus, a old world fountain and a farm table were also added to this space to reinforce the old world style.
