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 🍁

Pond Tip Tuesday | Design Tips For The Perfect Pond | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio

Water features are popping up everywhere and it seems everyone wants a backyard Pond or Water Feature.

Water features come in many forms… Bubbling Fountains, Pondless Waterfalls, Ornamental Koi Ponds and so much more! My single biggest request is to design and install Custom Residential Watergardens and Ponds! Everyone wants their own personal Oasis! And Why Not? They add so much to your life. But remember, If it’s worth doing , it’s worth doing right.

Like any project you undertake , you should first do some research and gather info .

– First , look around at some local Water Features and talk to some people who have one in their life. Identify some interesting design elements that you like and may want to incorporate into yours. Streams, bridges, lighting, fish caves, waterfalls, jets, etc, etc…

 Go on a Pond Tour! There’s no better way to see some awesome Watergardens and talk to actual Pond owners than on a Pond Tour ! I have been on dozens of Pond Tours all over this country and there’s no better way to learn about what its like to have a Waterfall in your own backyard than on a good Pond Tour! In fact, we have our Annual ‘Moonlight Pond Tour’ coming up on Saturday, September 18th.! See some gorgeous Ponds and Waterfalls with extensive night lighting. You will find Inspiration and ideas galore! 💥

– If and when you need some help with your design, call a professional Pond Designer! When I need help outside of my Specialty, and I want something done right the first time, that’s what I do. AND – Be choosy! Make sure your dealing with a qualified Waterfeature Specialist ( like a C.A.C. – Certified Aquascape Contractor ), PS: it’s probably NOT the guy mowing your grass… Check references! Look at Their work (older and more recent)! And Always get a written contract! I have successfully installed thousands of Water Features over the last 32 years and would be more than happy to help you in your quest for the perfect Backyard Water Feature!

Getting a Backyard Pond is one of the most rewarding things you will ever do for yourself!

Viva La’ Ponds!

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

What a beautiful day! Kinda cold 🥶 this morning, but a gorgeous sunrise and the birds are singing and the whole world is in bloom it seems 🌺 Perfect setting for a #waterfallwednesday.

Today’s offering is a recent Waterfall “Re-do”. We call them “Facelifts” 😊 Check out this before and after…

The homeowner loved the sound of the falls, but not the look… So he called us in to talk Redesign. We tore it all down, added proper filtration, a new liner and built them a proper Waterfall. What do you think?

These jobs are many times the most fulfilling. We turn a problem into your favorite thing about your backyard 😊 Feels good!

I hope you all enjoy the day! Life is too short not too ❤️

Peace ✌🏻 Love ❤️ and Waterfalls 🌊

Sent Memories | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Are you on Facebook? If not, you might find this interesting 🤔 If you are, then you know of what I speak… Everyday I get a picture that I personally posted, usually years ago, it just pops up in my home feed, it’s labeled as a “Facebook Memory” and it tells you exactly how many years ago that you originally posted it. Then you get to look back through the comments and likes, and if you want you can share it as a Story or to your feed and friends. At first, I didn’t know what to think about it, but I have grown to enjoy them and I usually share them again. 

These pictures of our work that I have posted from years ago, just pop up as a “Facebook memory”… Actually pretty cool 😎 | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Today’s memory was 3 years old. A couple of days ago it was a 7 year memory that I had forgotten about… 

What do YOU think 🤔 about the way social media like Facebook has changed our daily lives? How, if any, has it changed yours? 

“Memories, brought to you by Facebook”… 

Screenshot of what it looks like on your device. Do you look at these? Do you find it charming, or invasive? Just asking…

I have grown to think that it helps me share what I do. Our work at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio is so visual! It’s hard to describe what we build so that you can form an accurate picture in your minds eye… So that picture you see, of what your backyard could actually look like, is worth a thousand words… 

I’m writing this outside and it’s starting to rain  🌧 I hope you enjoyed it 😊

Have a Great Weekend!

A Break From Performance To Training | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio

One of the things about running your own business is that things get, VERY busy! The old saying “If you want something done right, do it yourself” rings true daily… LOTS of hats 🧢 to wear… The daily grind can get overwhelming & you loose that line between your personal time/life and your business. 

Don’t let your business run YOU! Take time to stay organized & to train your employees and yourself 🤔

I am switching my focus for the next couple of days to ‘organizing and training in my Business. As a business owner you find yourself constantly Performing! Work work work, perform, perform, perform! DON’T forget to train some as well! That is most of our (small business owners) biggest downfalls… 

I made a commitment long ago to stay on top of Technology and of advances in my field. I also try to invest in my Team so that we ALL stay on top of our game! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I’ve got to go to my next “Zoom Room” meeting now, so I want to wish everyone a good day!

PS: I will be sharing a few things I’m learning now with you soon.

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

It’s Waterfall Wednesday! My favorite day of the week 😊 I just LOVE sharing pictures of what we do here at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio! I’ve said it for years and I’ll say it again- “Waterfalls are my business, and business is GOOD”!  Here’s a snap shot of a Waterfall from a recent project…

This picture was taken minutes after it was first plugged in… A new creation that produces positive vibrations 24/7!

Literally just brought to life, this little beauty will bring sound and life to this garden for many years to come. I ❤️ My Job! 

Thanks to all! Have a Happy Waterfall Wednesday! #waterfallwednesday

Waterfall Wednesday | Pondless Waterfall Edition | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Another week has past and it’s #waterfallwednesday again! My focus this week is on a Very special kind of Waterfall – The Pondless Waterfall! 

This Pondless Waterfall was just plugged in! If you want a truly Low Maintenance Water Feature, look no further than a Custom Pondless Waterfall. | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I ❤️ Pondless Waterfalls! They are Low Maintenance, totally customizable & sound so nice! You get the Waterfall & stream without the maintenance of the Pond & Fish!

Here you see the workings of a Pondless Waterfall. As you see, the water is held underground and the pump can’t clog. Talk about Low Maintenance! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Check out this link below – there is more complete info on Pondless Waterfalls and even a portfolio of some Pondless Waterfalls that we designed and built right here at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio! 
Check the link 👇🏻

Enjoy your “Hump Day” and enjoy Waterfalls! Especially Pondless Waterfalls! 

Have a Great Waterfall Wednesday!
