A welcoming party of bright, yellow flowers shows where the Biercuk and Luckey property begins on Sayres Path in Wainscott. The flowers draw a visitor in, and the lush foliage, waterfalls and evergreens of the jungle-like garden make one want to stay.

George Biercuk and Robert Luckey’s private garden will be open for the public to enjoy on Saturday, September 6, as part of the Garden Conservancy’s Open Days Program.

Mr. Biercuk, who designed and planted the garden, said of his property, “It has something in bloom all year long.”

More natural than manicured, Mr. Biercuk crafted his garden with the intention that it be not merely looked at, but also enjoyed.

“I don’t have to worry about every leaf and it’s not a pristine garden—like a very formal one—because the garden should be fun,” Mr. Biercuk said.

Located at 18 Sayres Path in Wainscott, the Biercuk and Luckey garden will be open to the public from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday. Admission is $5, and the program will be held, rain or shine, with no reservations required. For more information, call (1-888) 842-2442 or visit opendaysprogram.org.
