Oyster Bay Garden Tour

Four gardens are featured on this self-guided tour, including an East Norwich garden featuring an 8-foot waterfall that cascades into a pond and a Laurel Hollow location with more than 400 roses. At his four-acre Oyster Bay Cove garden, Nicholas Fasciano, 72, created an allée bordered by Leland Cypress that ends at a gazebo. "You plant something, and it grows, and it's beautiful," he says. "It sort of reinforces a joy of nature." There's also an aviary with peacocks and Bantam chickens, and a koi pond.
