Most people have never been on a Garden Tour at night. But once they see the Landscape Lighting and the Waterfalls glowing and the fish sparkling in the Underwater Lights, they are blown away. It’s a great night out with the family or friends and a Wonderful Date Night” says Carter.
Now in its 10th year, The Moonlight Pond Tour features favorite Ponds from years past along with some awesome new Water Features to enjoy!

Water Gardening Renovation 101
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!
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!
- We will discuss proper pond filtration.
- We will discuss the use of aquatic plants in your ‘Aquascape’.
- We will discuss Landscape Design ideas that can really create dramatic change.
- We will re-design & re-build a Waterfall on one of our Ponds on site at the nursery during this class!
After the class Mark is going to fire up the grill & cook up some good stuff for lunch for all that come! This is our last ‘Summer Seminar’ for the season… So come on out and join us!
