“People LOVE this event” says Mark Carter, Landscape Designer at Carters Nursery Pond & Patio. “This Tour is unique! Most people have never been on a Garden Tour at night, much less a Pond tour… But once they see the Landscape Lighting and the Waterfalls glowing and the fish gliding through the Underwater Lights, they are blown away. This is a great night out with the family and/or a Wonderful Date Night” says Carter.
Now in its 12th year, TheMoonlight Pond Tour features favorite Ponds from years past along with some awesome new Water Features to enjoy! This is a self guided tour and is easy to follow, so you can tour at your own pace! Most of the stops are close together and the signs and map booklets are wonderfully easy to follow.
