Jay Sifford's garden in Charlotte, North Carolina, spans approximately 1/4 acre. Sifford, who runs his own aquarium business, bought the property 12 years ago. He took what was considered an impossible lot—hilly and filled with rotting railroad ties—and landscaped it into a dreamy woodland garden, complete with three ponds, all connected by streams, and punctuated with waterfalls.
