Carter's Water Garden


Sunday Reflections…

Good day to everyone! Just finished a great brunch and sat down to finish my Blog that I started late last night… We finished up our last event of the season last night, and it was a FUN one! A local artist and friend for over 30+ years, Matt Brown came to the nursery last night with a literal truck load of art and paintings and we set up our Nursery as his Gallery of Art 🖼 We called it ’Art in the Garden’ and it was a very unique and a very special evening. We even set up a ’Blacklight Room’ in the Koi Shack to showcase some of Matts unique pieces. I’ll tell the rest of the story with a few pictures of last night.

Matt Brown (featured artist) and Charlotte Powell Vaughn (his mom) and Conor McGregor… 😊

What a great evening! Matt and I have been friend’s for many years now, Maybe its because we both work with our hands to make unique, artistic creations? Our mediums are very different, but I think his Artwork within the gardens and by my Waterfalls was pretty Awesome! And it brought a bunch of people out to enjoy a night of Art and enjoyment, another win-win!

PS: We are gonna do this again! 💥

“Each of us are flowers in the garden of life we bloom, 
We all bring a different light to brighten the daily gloom. 
We all posess great potential to inspire our fellow man, 
To offer peace and love is a choice we all should plan. 
We can each bring joy to a life filled with sadness, 
Just through a soft touch or word spoken in gladness. 
We can also bring peace to those with a troubled mind, 
Bring hope to a broken heart joy from the daily grind. 
For every flower has something beautiful to share, 
That has special meaning to someone, sometime, somewhere, 

But our time is short, just like a season, 
As autumn advances with purpose and reason. 
We all have these gifts and we must take a chance, 
If we spread peace and love it’s the garden we enhance… 

Enhance the garden… 
Spread the love… The peace will follow…”

~ Cosmic Dreamer

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

The Sound of The Season | Carters Nursery, Pond and Patio | Jackson, TN

There’s nothing like the first evening in late Winter or Early Spring when you hear the peepers waking up. Their sound fills the air and you know Spring is almost here. Once “Spring has Sprung” that nighttime sound only gets deeper and more intense… Especially when you have a Pond in your Landscape. I literally fell asleep last night sitting by my Pond 😴
So I made a short video recording of the “Sound of the Season” in my yard. Take a listen 🎧

I sure do enjoy the “Nightlife” 😊


Have a good day and even better night!

Pond Tip Tuesday | Fall Pond Tips | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Fall is in full swing! The sun is setting earlier every day & the temps are falling… And soon, Jack Frost 🥶 will be paying us a visit… The Koi have eaten well this year & have put on a good bit of fat to get them through the Cool Season ahead. Now is the time that many of my clients and fellow Koi enthusiasts start asking a very important question…

– When do I stop feeding regular food and start feeding Cool Season Koi Food?

– My Answer- Remember the rule of 60!

Switching to a Cool Temperature Koi Food is very important for the health of your Koi!

When the water temperature drops below 60 degrees Fahrenheit you should switch to a Lower Protein, Cool Season Koi Food. We like to call it the ‘Rule Of 60’… | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Every Pond should have a floating Pond thermometer. Our finned friends are cold blooded & water temperature is very important when it comes to seasonal feeding times. Pick one up at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Every Pond should have a floating Pond thermometer. Our finned friends are cold blooded & water temperature is very important when it comes to seasonal feeding times. Pick one up at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

So to wrap it up, check your water temp (via a floating thermometer) & when your water temp drops to 60 degrees, you should transition to Cool Season Koi Food. That’s the “Rule of 60”… 😉

Viva La’ Fall!

Happy Pondering 🤔

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

I Love designing and building Custom Water Features! So projects like this one are special. Building a feature as close to the look and feel of a “Natural Waterfall” was our goal on this one. Each project we do is a custom, one of a kind feature. In other words, creating Living, Moving Art is our business. From design to completion, From Dream to Reality! That’s what we do… 

Pictures don’t do this feature justice! But, the pictures are pretty darn nice 😊 The team at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio hit it out of the park on this one.

I hope you have a great #waterfallwednesday! It’s all downhill to the weekend from here! 😊

Monday Morning Moment Of Zen | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

This Moss covered Waterfall has been here for several years. I stopped by for a visit the other day and got the chance to make this little video. How beautiful! And what a wonderful sound 🎵 Situated right by the deck and framed by the back windows of the home, this feature is part of the owners everyday life. Take a listen and see if it gives you a relaxing Zen feeling 🌞

Its a new week! I hope yours is a great one!
