On Sunday, Sept. 14, a private garden in Greenwich will open to the public through the Garden Conservancy’s Open Days program, 10 to 4.

Admission to each garden is $5, open days are rain or shine, and no reservations are required. Call 888-842-2442, or visit Opendaysprogram.org for more information.

Included on the Sept. 14 Open Day is Lucy and Nat Day’s Garden — Where the Wild Things Are at 1 Hillside Drive, an innovative topiary garden with 20 large custom-made topiaries including a huge boxwood elephant, a pair of life-size lions flanking a stone staircase, a yew wing chair, and a painting made from succulents, plus a collection of contemporary art and sculpture.

Open days gardens are featured in the 2014 Open Days Directory, a soft-cover book that includes detailed driving directions and vivid descriptions written by their owners. The directory includes garden listings in 22 states and costs $25.95 including shipping.
