When Steve and Eugenia Luoma moved into 3905 Lighthouse six years ago, their front yard was mostly weeds. Little by little, they made their property beautiful, not only by planting a variety of palms, ferns and bushes, but by creating areas that look like treasures washed up on land. One such area features an Olmec mask imbedded in the pebble ground cover alongside a lantern and stones with Asian characters, and to the left of the entrance a fountain. There is rusted patina on mettle pots and urns backed up by mother-in-law tongues (cacti) and a Burmese head sitting on a rock. Perhaps the most striking image is a life-size nude dancer poised on a rock in what resembles a (pebble) pond. Steve and Eugenia found the statue in Lodi, and couldn’t resist taking it home to Discovery Bay to dance for the neighbors’ delight. The flagstone mailbox matches the walks that lead to the entrance and side yards, which are gated with green iron doors resembling palm leaves. Despite the winter weather, color abounds in the lavender, petunias and daisies planted amid palms and rocks. Come see for yourself. The Discovery Bay Garden Club congratulated the Luomas and rewarded them with a Certificate of Appreciation and a sign for their front yard proclaiming their Home of the Month award for January. Village Nursery in Brentwood presented Steve and Eugenia with a gift card worth $25 of merchandise. The homes between Discovery Bay Boulevard and Sandpoint Road – waterfront and shared docks – were judged in February.
