Darlene La Mantia and Michael Pao are the original owners of their home, and in 15½ years they’ve turned their front yard into a lush landscape. The garden is highlighted by a Rose of Sharon tree, potted sago palm, foxtail fern, Australian tree ferns, creeping fig and a lion statue and fountain. The home -- located at 1128 Mandarin Court in Modesto -- is the Modesto Garden Club’s Garden of the Month for September.
