Carter's Water Garden


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

I wanted to share a couple of pictures we took last night while we were messing around in the garden.

The moon was shining down just right 🌙
This young man was having all kinds of fun 😊

Thats what its all about! Getting outside and having an enjoyable evening most any season of the year! That is one of the things I always try to achive with my designs, I try to design Gardens that have year round interest!

So, I hope you have been enjoying this beautiful Fall weather we have had… And I hope you enjoy this little glimpse of my Water Garden on a Moonlit 🌝 Indian Summer night in Autumn 🍁

Best Trees For Fall Color | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

This came up yesterday on the radio – So here ya go…

“We’ve been talking a lot about fall color around the nursery, on the radio and on this blog. Have you been getting out to see it and experience it… I hope you have been and are still doing just that! 😊 Here’s the color map –

I have had SO MANY questions the last couple of weeks about my favorite trees to plant for Fall color and what I would recommend to plant in people’s Landscapes. So here is a short list of some of my favorite trees that do well here in West Tennessee.“

Mark’s Top Ten Trees for Fall Color –

  •  Red Maple – Acer rubrum 

    One of our best trees for Fall Color.

  • Sugar Maple –  Acer saccharum 

    Wonderful Color + the BEST Syrup ever😜

  • Balled Cypress – Taxodium distichum 

    Such a unique tree! Bald Cypress are very underutilized for their seasonal interest. They are such a beautiful tree. Interesting fact : The Bald Cypress is a deciduous conifer.

  • Dogwoods – Cornus florida 

    Everyone thinks of spring with the Dogwood tree blossoms, BUT – They are beautiful in the fall with their red tinged leaves and shiny red seeds.

  • Sassafrass – Sassafras albidum 

    One of my favorite trees for several reasons! But the biggie is the breathtaking Fall Color! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

  • Ginko – Ginkgo biloba 

    A “Living Fossil” – This unique tree ‘WOW’S’ in  the Fall!

  • Crepe Myrtle –  Lagerstroemia 

    Not only does this ornamental tree bring outstanding Spring & Summer interest, they also bring eye popping color every Fall!

  • Black Gum –  Nyssa sylvatica 

    The Black Gum or Tupelo Gum tree is one of my favorite natives!

  • White Oak – Quercus alba 

    Big native shade tree with striking, deep crimson/red Fall color.

  • Sourwood – Oxydendrum arboreum 

    A very unique native tree, really shows out in the Fall!

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

I sat by my Pond yesterday for quite a while. Listening to the wind & waterfalls and watching the leaves fall and blow around. It was a very windy, cloudy, melancholy type of day… But I found a little beauty in it to share 😊

I slowed this still photo down a bit and it really shows the soft, foamy, splashy effect of the Falls. | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Have a great Monday!

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

It was a perfect, cool Fall day yesterday. The leaves were raining down around the pond and I just sat down and watched them for a while. I made this short little video sitting there by the pond. This little waterfall flows under this Japanese Maple tree that is in full Fall color right now. I hope it brings a little “Zen” to your day 😊

Have a GREAT day!
