This Self Guided Tour will consist of a dozen or so water features within the surrounding area of North Jackson, Tn. (Madison County) and is centrally located to Carter’s Nursery, Pond & Patio. The Carter Nursery location will be where we have our open house – basically “Pond Central” for the tour. You are welcome to stop by anytime during the day and get free refreshments and you are invited to sit back, kick your feet up and enjoy the experience of being a water feature owner yourself. We will also have experts at Carter’s to answer any questions that you may have about water features and how you can get started with one yourself.

Whether you just take the tour, come by the Nursery (“Pond Central”) or both, you will be inspired by all the natural beauty. Come enjoy a beautiful Spring day in the Garden with us 🙂

The Spring Pond Tour is a Fundraiser for the Jackson Madison County Humane Society. We believe in our local Humane Society and have been sponsoring this Pond Tour as a fundraiser for them for 16 years now. So come on out and help us support a worthy Local charity.

– Spring Pond Tour Tickets are $10 ea. (kids under 12 are FREE!). Tickets can be purchased at Carter’s Nursery, Pond & Patio, ph# 731-424-2206. Each group receives a Map Booklet with detailed descriptions and directions.100% of all donations go to the Humane Society.

“A number of this year’s Spring Pond Tour stops are new water gardens, along with favorites featured in prior pond tours. A few may be on the Moonlight Pond Tour in the Fall, so get a daytime look at the Garden NOW, then come back for the Moonlight Pond Tour and you will get to experience the best of BOTH worlds,” says Mark Carter, Landscape Designer at Carter’s Nursery, Pond & Patio. “We hope lots of folks will come out and see what a wonderful effect these Gorgeous Landscapes, Waterfalls, Plants and Fish can have on your life. It’s always a Fun, Beautiful Day when you get out and tour gardens, and the tour really helps our local Humane Society. They are a local non profit & get ALL their funding through donations. It’s a Win-Win.
