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!

Monday Morning Moment of Zen | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Heres a beautiful semi formal Water Garden I had the pleasure of touring while down in Southern Florida recently. It was warm and in bloom and made me dream of Spring…

Spring is coming! Soon our water lilies will be blooming and our koi will be eating from our hands and all will be right in the world of the Water Garden ❤️ Until then, enjoy the season as it unfolds…

Have a great week!

Throwback Thursday | #Throwbackthursday | Carters Nursery Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

This popped up in my Facebook feed today as a memory. I thought it was a great Throwback Thursday to share. Recreational Ponds and Interactive Water Features are HOT!

“The old fashioned, chemical treated swimming pools are becoming a thing of the past. This beautiful crystal clear “Recreational Pond” is all natural and 100% organic! Plants and bio filters do the work and you have all this beauty to enjoy when it’s too cold to swim.”

I just love #Throwbackthursday!

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

One of the big reasons I went down to Florida recently was to train and earn CEU’s (Continuing Education Units) for one of my Certifications, namely my certification as a Master CAC (Master Certified Aquascape Contractor). We took part in 3 different Water Feature builds, one of which I am sharing here today. This is a custom Fountainscape with color changing lights in a very beautiful garden setting. check out this short video of the finished product

Can you imagine having this in your backyard garden? The sound, the movement, the 24 hour interest! A Water Feature will change your life for the better! Enjoy #waterfeaturewednesday!

Fall Beauty At Night | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN
