The Moonlight Pond Tour takes place each Fall and coincides with the Full Moon. The Moonlight Pond Tour will showcase Eco-System Ponds, Water Gardens, Pondless Waterfalls, Disappearing Fountains and Koi Ponds, all under a Gorgeous ‘Moonlit sky’ and is enhanced by AWESOME Landscape Lighting. “People just Love this event” says Mark Carter, Designer at Carters Nursery. “It’s Very unique! 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.

The nighttime garden is a magical world.
