This is a going to be fun for everyone – BUT especially for people who -
– Had a Pond for a while and want to add something, or update it a little… Add a stream or new waterfall.
– OR, have a Pond that has never been quite… right – It needs filtrations help or more plants or SOMETHING!

Learn "How To" freshen up/redesign  your Water Garden at our Workshop.

We call many of our renovation jobs (re-do of an existing feature) “Facelifts”

We will go over how to not only Design, prepare & build an ALL Natural, “Low Maintenance” Water Garden of your own – But more importantly - How to turn an older Water feature/Pond into a brand new, “facelifted” feature or a troubled green water pond into a crystal clear pond of your dreams!

There is MAGIC in water!

It’s Pond Tour time again in Tennessee and I am EXCITED! This years Summer Tour will showcase Dozens of Unique, Custom Water Gardens, Koi Ponds, Pondless Waterfalls, Disappearing Fountains and of course LOTS of Gorgeous Landscaping!

(Madison County) and is easy to follow. The Summer Pond Tour is a Fundraiser for the Jackson Madison County Humane Society. 100% of ticket sales go to help them, so tell all your friends!

The Moonlight Luau is fun for the whole family.

Back By Popular Demand – Again, this years Moonlight Party will be called the “Moonlight Luau”! We have been having so much fun with the “Luau” theme! So, we are gonna do it again! We will decorate it up nicely – complete with lights, Tiki torches, Hawaiian Leis, a Cool Band playing laid back music and we are going to cook another “Kaula Pig”! WHAT is that you ask??? That means the whole hog will be cooked in the ground “Hawaiian Luau style”! We want everyone to wear your favorite Hawaiian Shirt, skirt, hat, WHATEVER – and come on out for a Cool Evening. I’m thinking of giving an award this year for ‘Best Luau outfit’ – so have some fun.
