Carter's Water Garden


Water Feature Wednesday | #waterfeaturewednesday | Carters Nursery Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Is it just me or is October moving fast 💨 Only 12 days till Halloween 🎃 And it’s already #waterfallwednesday… Scratch that, it’s #waterfeaturewednesday! 💥
Checkout this beautiful Custom Fountain. It’s a disappearing fountain, meaning the water flows into an underground chamber where it’s stored and recirculates from there.

I just LOVE this Water Feature ❤️ It sounds so good 😊 It really sets the mood in this beautiful backyard patio garden 🪴 With the lighting, it becomes a 24 hour feature… Enjoy it all night! It just keeps on bubbling bubbling bubbling…

Have a Great #waterfeaturewednesday! #waterfallwednesday

Sunday Reflection’s…

I have been on the road for the past few days doing some out of town Water Feature Design work. My travels have taken me into middle and eastern Tennessee, up into the mountains ⛰ What a beautiful state we live in ❤️ I Love TN! To top it all off, the TN VOLS 🏈 finally broke a loosing streak to Alabama and beat them at home in Knoxville! 🏈💥

Now it’s back down the mountain, across the plateau and the TN River to West Tn… and to quote the old saying “There is NO place like home!”

There is no place like home! Go VOLS!🏈


“Its great to be back 
after many places we did roam. 
no greater truth has been said, 
than..theres no place like home 

sacred sanctuary and my familiar bed, 
soft blankets and comfy pillows that  
that mould so knowingly, 
to the shape of your head. 

food cooked just like I want 
rooms set up to my taste, 
cupboards for me to rummage in 
and stack up neatly, what I purchased. 

plants to say hello to, 
flowers to greet me smilingly 
not to forget my darling doggy 
who licks me welcomes me so beguingly 

ah the pleasure and comfort of my home 
can not be compared to any other 
the feeling when you enter your home 
is like a child being embraced by its mother. 

holidays are fun and are required 
they serve to remind you well. 
after you have had fun and travelled, 
its great to be back where you dwell 

though it takes a lot of love and labour 
to make a home that that you can be proud 
theres no place like home 
I will say it again 
I will say it hearfelt and loud.”

~ Arti Chopra

Have a great Sunday!

Does My Koi Pond &/or Water Garden Need A Skimmer? | Carters Nursery Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

I have been operating Carters Nursery Pond & Patio since 1989. I’ve set up countless Garden Shows and hosted hundreds of Pond related workshops (pond builds, design classes, waterfall building, pond maintenance, koi health, etc etc)… I own & operate a 7 acre Garden Center and Aquatic Nursery with running eco-system ponds and a full Koi facility. My goal all these years has been to show Pond Enthusiasts a better way. But, that doesn’t mean I can rest on my laurels… Just Yesterday, I had a great conversation with a walk in customer that lives within 5 miles of my Nursery and has been a pond enthusiast for over 15 years! And guess what… He didn’t know that I was here and he didn’t know what a Pond Skimmer would do for him 😮 Sooooo, needless to say I spent some time with him and gave him the full .10 cent tour of my place! He was blown away and left with a skimmer of his own and a mission to install it himself 💥

We have a skimmer to fit most any Pond at Carters Nursery Pond & Patio | 2846 Old Medina Rd. Jackson, TN 38305

So the question remains for many Pond owners –

Q- Does My Koi Pond &/or Water Garden Need A Skimmer?

The answer is YES! Most Definitely…

The simple function of the Skimmer is to help collect surface debris from your Pond. BUT, that’s not all it does for you. A good Skimmer also –

  • Houses, hides and pre-filters your Pond Pump! No more clogged pumps! 💥
  • By collecting debris before it collects on the pond bottom it Greatly Improves Water Quality!
  • A Skimmer also greatly increases dissolved oxygen in your Pond Water! Making a much healthier Pond and much happier Koi!
  • A Skimmer does most of the physical work for you, giving you more time to relax 😊

IF you are a Pond guy or gal and don’t have a Pond Skimmer, I am here to help! Drop by and I will show you the light 💡 or give me a call 1-731-424-2206 and I will come to you!

Thanks! & Happy Pondering!

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

Turn around and its Waterfall Wednesday again! Which by the way is my favorite day of the week! Not only do we get to enjoy beautiful Waterfalls, its the halfway point of the week 💥 YES, thats the weekend you see in the distance ❤️ Love it!
My offering is a beautiful backyard pond with twin upper waterfalls that flow under a stone bridge before combing into a final cascade that flows into the pond below. Here are a few different prospectives to view…

A beautiful close in shot for #Waterfallwednesday.
A wider shot that shows the bridge stone and the falls as they flow into the pond.
The view from below… The Koi’s view of the world… Maybe the most beautiful view…

I sure do hope you enjoy this beautiful #Waterfallwednesday !

Happy Pondering!
