```Here is a solution with Presentations. There are many elements to the plot
so it's a little detailed. I think it is better to have a complete single
input description of the graphic, than to make a partial plot and then use
DrawingTools. What would happen if you had to change the function?

The graphic might be better and simpler to make if you used color Filling
instead of hatching. Filling is a little less "busy" and distracting.
Hatching was a device to overcome limitations in print media. The
limitations mostly don't exist anymore. So here is the filling solution
first.

Needs["Presentations`Master`"]

f[x_] := 1/x;
Draw2D[
{(* Draw the curve with a fill *)
Draw[f[x], {x, 1, 5},
AxesOrigin -> {0, 0},
Filling -> Axis,
FillingStyle -> Blend[{Orange, White}, .6]],
(* Draw the boundary lines *)
AbsoluteThickness[2],
Line[{{1, 0}, {1, 1.1 f[1]}}],
Line[{{5, 0}, {5, 1.1 f[1]}}],
Line[{{.9, 0}, {5.1, 0}}],
(* Add the labels and point *)
Text[Style["Boundary Condition", 14, Bold], {.8, .5}, {0, 0}, {0,
1}],
Text[Style["Boundary Condition", 14, Bold], {5.2, .5}, {0, 0}, {0,
1}],
Text[Style["Initial Condition", 14, Bold], {3, -0.1}, {0, 0}],
Text[Style["Solution Known", 14], {3, 0.15}, {0, 0}],
Text[Style["\[CapitalGamma]", 14], {1.5, f[1.5]}, {-3, 0}],
AbsoluteThickness[1],
CirclePoint[{3.5, f[3.5]}, 3, Black, Green],
Text[Style["P", 14, Bold], {3.5, f[3.5]}, 1.5 {-1, -1}]},

AspectRatio -> .6,
PlotRange -> {{.5, 5.5}, {-.25, 1}},
Frame -> False,
ImageSize -> 400]

Here is the graphic using hatching. We supply a Table of lines using a
RegionFunction to limit their extent. It is necessary to specify PlotRange
or Mathematica does not always obey the RegionFunction!

f[x_] := 1/x;
Draw2D[
{(* Draw the hatch lines first *)
Table[
Draw[.5 x - x0, {x, -1.5, 5},
RegionFunction ->
Function[{x, y}, 1 < x < 5 \[And] 0 <= y <= f[x]],
PlotRange -> {{1, 5}, {0, 1}},
PlotStyle -> Directive[AbsoluteThickness[3], LightGray]], {x0, -1,
5, .075}],
(* Draw the curve without a fill *)
Draw[f[x], {x, 1, 5}],
(* Draw the boundary lines *)
AbsoluteThickness[2],
Line[{{1, 0}, {1, 1.1 f[1]}}],
Line[{{5, 0}, {5, 1.1 f[1]}}],
Line[{{.9, 0}, {5.1, 0}}],
(* Add the labels and point *)
Text[Style["Boundary Condition", 14, Bold], {.8, .5}, {0, 0}, {0,
1}],
Text[Style["Boundary Condition", 14, Bold], {5.2, .5}, {0, 0}, {0,
1}],
Text[Style["Initial Condition", 14, Bold], {3, -0.1}, {0, 0}],
Text[Style["Solution Known", 14], {3, 0.15}, {0, 0}],
Text[Style["\[CapitalGamma]", 14], {1.5, f[1.5]}, {-3, 0}],
AbsoluteThickness[1],
CirclePoint[{3.5, f[3.5]}, 3, Black, Green],
Text[Style["P", 14, Bold], {3.5, f[3.5]}, 1.5 {-1, -1}]},

AspectRatio -> .6,
PlotRange -> {{.5, 5.5}, {-.25, 1}},
Frame -> False,
ImageSize -> 400]

Is it possible to plot something like this in Mathematica?

How might I do the hatched shading, with customizable colors/thickness?
