8X Best of Houzz Design & Service Winner.


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

Jay Sifford

At Sifford Garden Design, we believe that a garden should be an immersive environment that is 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.

We began our journey of craftsmanship in 2008 and have held excellence as our goal ever since. We have won awards and rave reviews from our clients.

In addition, Jay is an accomplished writer and speaker. He was named by LUXlife magazine as "North Carolina's Most Outstanding Landscape Designer 2021". His work has appeared in Southern Living, Country Gardens, Fine Gardening and Garden Design magazines, as well as in several books. 

He approaches new projects with clear direction and a style that waxes toward contemporary and Asian aesthetics. Creating beautiful solutions to problems is what he thrives upon.
