Carter's Water Garden


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!

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

We were making the rounds last evening, right before dark. Feeding Koi and enjoying the Gardens, when the light sprinkles started ☔️ We finally got in the golf cart to ride up to the house and I stopped for one last look 👀 So I made a little video as the rain really got started… Check it out. Talk about relaxing and a feeling of Zen…

There is nothing like the sound of a Waterfall! Except maybe the sound and, smell of the rain. I believe the word for the smell of fresh rain on the garden soil is called ‘Petrichor’…

“Petrichor : the earthy scent produced when rain falls on dry soil. The word is constructed from Greek petra (πέτρα), “rock”, or petros (πέτρος), “stone”, and īchōr (ἰχώρ), the fluid that flows in the veins of the gods in Greek mythology.”

Combine those two things and … 🧘 Zen

Enjoy your day! 🌞

Pond Tip Tuesday | HOT 🥵 Days = Pond Evaporation | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Have you noticed that you have to add more water to your pond on Hot Days like this? It’s mostly from evaporation! Don’t forget to top off your Water Garden from time to time to keep up. 💦
OR, check out my little Pond Tip for this week…

We sell and install an Auto Fill Unit for your Pond! The float on the end kicks it into action when it reaches the desired level and it fills it back up for you! Talk about Low Maintenance!

We sell and Install ‘Auto Fill Valves’ specifically made for your Water Garden or Koi Pond. They are fairly simple to install and set up and virtually invisible in your skimmer. 
Can you imagine not having to worry about adding water over the Hot Summer months? 

Boom!💥 This is my offering for your Pond Tip this week… To me it’s all about Low Maintenance! Less work and more enjoyment!

Enjoy the Pond Tip! And Happy Pondering

Monday’s Moment of Zen | Water Garden Love ❤️

I love my Pond! And I love interacting with it! The fish, the frogs, dragonflies, plants, etc.. All of it! Heck, I even love tending to my Water Garden 😊 This time of the season, I usually cut things back a bit, fertilize my Waterlilies and Lotus plants and do a good physical removal of excess string algae in and around the Waterfalls. Believe it or not, I get great joy from it… And when I sit down and look at the freshness of the newly cleaned, ‘Mid season Pond’ I get that feeling of satisfaction… A very Zen feeling. Check out my little video of me cleaning the excess string algae off the Waterfall. Maybe you will see what I mean 😊

Have a great day!

Throwback Thursday | Water Lilies | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Yep, it’s #throwbackthursday once again and this memory just popped up in my Facebook feed and provided the perfect inspiration. Aquatic plants are some of my favorites! And this beauty is hard to beat ❤️
Say hello to – Nymphaea ‘Red Flare’

This night-blooming lily produces magnificent magenta red, flowers that are held high above the waters’ surface. These fragrant blooms can stand 7″ to 10″ tall 🤩 Did I mention that they also bloom at night? Yes, the blooms open in late evening and bloom all night and into the early morning. A total show stopper!

Red flair is one of the tropical lilies that I always try to procure for my own Pond. They achieve the “trifecta”… Beautiful, Fragrant and a Night Bloomer! Boom 💥

Well, that’s my offering for Throwback Thursday!

Have a great evening 😊
