About Mr. Sifford

 

 

Jay Sifford is the owner of Sifford Garden Design. Jay's philosophy is 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." His style "waxes toward contemporary and Asian aesthetics."

 

He explained this approach in "Designing a Stylized Meadow,"appearing in the February 2023 issue of Fine Gardening.  He is a frequent contributor to Fine Gardening, Southern Living and Garden Design.  He was named by LUXlife as "North Carolina's Most Outstanding Landscape Designer 2021." 

 

An opportunity to visit his home and garden in western North Carolina might be available in 2023.
