Pond Tip Tuesday | Summertime Pond Tip | Pond Pumps | Pond Aeration | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

It’s Summertime and the livin’ is easy 😊 Your Koi are happy and your Pond is a magical thing! ❤️ Ahhh, the soothing sights & sounds… BUT, what if it quits running? What if your Pond Pump Stops… Believe me when I tell you – it’s NEVER at an opportune moment! No indeed! You’re either out of town, or it’s scorching HOT and your fish are gasping for air… Your Pond Pump Never goes out at an opportune moment!

Your Waterfall serves many purposes. Yes, It’s the central focal point of the Feature, but it also aerates the pond and circulates the water, VERY important for your aquatic life. If your Pond Pump is out, ALL of this stops… | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Your Pump is the heart of your Pond! When it stops running, it’s important to have a backup plan! Many people keep a small pump that can be placed in shallow water to “flash the surface”, this will help to keep oxygen in the water while you get a replacement Pond Pump to power your Waterfall.

Pond Pumps come in different shapes and sizes! It’s a great idea to have a backup pump in case of an outage! It could save your sanity and you’re Koi’s life. | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Many of my clients also have an aeration system in their Pond. This helps to oxygenate the water and it’s unlikely that the pump and the aeration system will fail at the same time. I recommend powering them on separate circuits in case of GFCI interruptions.

Having an Aeration System on your Pond is a great way to maintain oxygen levels for your finned friends. Plug your system into a different outlet & circuit than your pump for even more assurance. We have systems for Ponds large and small at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio.

Whether you take care of your own Pond Maintenance or one of our Maintenance Technicians takes care of your Pond, it’s important to have a plan and to be ready “Just in case”… I have a complete maintenance service available to help you and your Pond and we stock pumps and aeration systems at our Nursery and Garden Center. Simply call 731-424-2206 for assistance. We stock most pumps and aeration systems and will get you fixed right up!

I hope this little bit of info on pumps and ponds was helpful! Like the old man says, “Knowing is half the battle”! 

Happy Pondering!

Year Round Beauty! Outdoor Living At It’s Best | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

The beauty of a Garden 🪴 in the Spring and Summer is a given. But this evening as I was walking up the hill I just happened to look up and Boom 💥 The moon 🌙 the bare birch trees, the lights and the sound of the Waterfalls… Even on a night in January, I had to stop and enjoy the beauty. Now, I’m thinking a fire 🔥 is in order …

I truly love my garden and outdoor patio area Year round! Getting ready to start a fire 🔥

Have a great evening!

Monday’s and Waterfalls…

I’ve been up since early, but never found time for my BLOG today… I normally try to share a Waterfall on Mondays, so instead, how about one of my favorite poems about a special waterfall 😊

“Whenever I plunge my arm, like this,
In a basin of water, I never miss
The sweet sharp sense of a fugitive day
Fetched back from the thickening shroud of grey.
    Hence the only prime
    And real love-rhyme
    That I know by heart
    And that leaves no smart,
Is the purl of a little valley fall
About three spans wide and two spans tall
Over a table of solid rock
And into a scoop of the self-same block;
The purl of a runlet that never ceases
In stir of kingdoms, in wars, in peaces;
With a hollow, boiling voice it speaks
And has spoken since hills were turfless peaks.”

“And why gives this the only prime
Idea to you of a real love-rhyme?
And why does plunging your arm in a bowl
Full of spring water, bring throbs to your soul?”
“Well, under the fall, in a crease of the stone,
Though where precisely none ever has known,
Jammed darkly, nothing to show how prized,
And by now with its smoothness opalised,
    Is a drinking-glass:
    For, down that pass,
    My love and I
    Walked under a sky
Of blue with a leaf-wove awning of green,
In the burn of August, to paint the scene,
And we placed our basket of fruit and wine
By the runlet’s rim, where we sat to dine;
And when we had drunk from the glass together,
Arched by the oak-copse from the weather,
I held the vessel to rinse in the fall,
Where it slipped, and sank, and was past recall,
Though we stooped and plumbed the little abyss
With long bared arms. There the glass still is.
And, as said, if I thrust my arm below
Cold water in basin or bowl, a throe
From the past awakens a sense of that time,
And the glass we used, and the cascade’s rhyme.
The basin seems the pool, and its edge
The hard smooth face of the brook-side ledge,
And the leafy pattern of china-ware
The hanging plants that were bathing there.

“By night, by day, when it shines or lours,
There lies intact that chalice of ours,
And its presence adds to the rhyme of love
Persistently sung by the fall above.
No lip has touched it since his and mine
In turn therefrom sipped lovers’ wine.”

~ Thomas Hardy

See y’all tomorrow 😊

Waterfall Wednesday | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

It’s #waterfallwednesday y’all! My Favorite Day of the week! This Fabulous little Pondless 
Waterfall was put here as a unique focal point in the forefront of a plant screen… PS: we didn’t want it to look like a hedgerow or “screening plants”… Boom 💥 Not only does it look great 24/7 thanks to the Landscape lighting, it sounds wonderful as well 🎶 

We even put a small “seat boulder” there at front left for the “Perfect Picture” 😊

This is a recent Water Feature that I just love ❤️ It really transformed a boring area of the landscape. Now, it’s the Central Focal point of the entire area. At night the lights come on automatically and really throw some magic 💥 PLUS : The sound is beyond compare 😘 | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee


I hope your Waterfall Wednesday goes well! From here, it’s all downhill to the weekend 😉

Comparative Shots

I was messing with some pictures of tree faces to make a little blog about some of my favorites, when my son walked up and saw these two… He says “it’s like a 30 year before and after of you”…  I died laughing 😝 

In a way I see what my son means 😂 There is a similarity…

Anyways… There’s today’s blog… It’s a Blog about… Nothing! Hmmmmm… Sounds familiar 😊
