About Us

8X Best of Houzz Design & Service Winner.

Named 'North Carolina's Most Outstanding Landscape Designer 2021' by LuxLife Magazine


At Sifford Garden Design, Jay believes that a garden should be an immersive environment laced with magic, art and story, a place where people, plants and wildlife interact in meaningful ways, and a stage upon which people can live out the best versions of their lives.

His journey of craftsmanship began in 2008 and he has pursued excellence as a goal ever since. He has won numerous industry awards and rave reviews from his clients.

Jay’s work has been featured in Fine Gardening, Southern Living, Country Gardens, Garden Design, SouthPark Magazine and appeared in several books. LUXlife magazine named him "North Carolina's Most Outstanding Landscape Designer 2021;” he is also a sought-after writer, speaker and podcast guest.

He approaches new projects with a style that waxes toward contemporary, prairie and Asian aesthetics.

Sifford Garden Design seeks clients who desire something different, who celebrate quality craftsmanship, who are open-minded with regard to new and creative ideas, who prioritize the transformative benefits of an immersive garden, and who, after a collaborative dialogue on a beautiful new look, trust our process and vision.
