I’m Wanting A Backyard Pond | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

There’s an old saying in my business- “Everybody wants a waterfall, they just don’t know it… Yet”!


PS: It became an old saying, because it’s true!

“I’m wanting a backyard Pond”… I hear this quite often in my business. Usually they have seen a beautiful Water Garden or Waterfall and want one as well (that old saying comes true again)…

Come by the nursery one day soon and check out our Water Feature displays, Aquatic Plants and Koi. One of our wonderful staff members will answer your questions, help you with information and sign you up for a Personal Design Consultation. Then I will call you and set up a time to come by to design and create a custom Water Feature of your very own.  

Our retail Garden Center and Water Feature Showroom is open Tuesday Thru Thursday from 8 to 5 & Friday from 8am. – 4pm. We are open Saturdays from 8-2! 

Come by and see the possibilities!

Sunday Reflections…

Did you see any shooting stars last night? Or early this morning? Guess what? We are in the peak of the Leonids Meteor Shower! 💥 Last night & luckily for you – Tonight, is the BEST time to see some! I read a bit about it to find out a few facts…

If your up, tonight is going to be the best night to see a “Shooting Star”! Between midnight and dawn is the best time… Good news, if you tough it out and see one, YOU get to make a wish 💫

The yearly ‘Leonids come from a Comet that orbits the sun every 33 years! The comets name is Temple/Tuttle. It won’t be back around to us until 2031… Pretty cool huh 😎

 

Leonids Over Us

“The sky is streaked with them
burning hole in black space —
like fireworks, someone says
all friendly in the dark chill
of Newcomb Hollow in November,
friends known only by voices.

We lie on the cold sand and it
embraces us, this beach
where locals never go in summer
and boast of their absence. Now
we lie eyes open to the flowers
of white ice that blaze over us

and seem to imprint directly
on our brains. I feel the earth,
rolling beneath as we face out
into the endlessness we usually
ignore. Past the evanescent
meteors, infinity pulls hard.”

~ Marge Piercy

 

Have a Great Sunday! And a great Sunday night viewing the Leonids! 💫

Cold Water Beneficial Bacteria is available at Carters Nursery & It keeps on working when the plants and fish aren’t active, and it really helps the quality of your Pond Water! It is extremely effective at reducing sludge, dead and decaying leaves and plants, built up fish waste & excess nutrients. These things cause poor water quality, reduced water clarity and can have catastrophic effects on your Koi & other pond fishes health. Stay ahead of the game and use Cold Water Beneficial Bacteria!
