Pond TALE Tuesday… | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I LOVE designing and building Custom Water Features! Many of my designs start with a story… Or a ‘Tale’ if you will. Like this one Today for instance… 

The Tale is, on my beautiful brides and my Honeymoon, we drove to the Mountains of East Tennessee. We had a big old time too! ❤️ One day in particular, we decided to get out and ride around and see where the road would lead us. Long story short, we took a picnic 🧺 lunch and headed down a trail into the woods … We ended up stopping by a beautiful stone creek with Several little Waterfalls and a perfect spot to sit down and eat. My wife Jo Was so struck by the spot that I sketched the little stream and waterfalls out on a napkin and promised to build her a spot “just like it” at home when we got back 😊

This is what I came up with based on my sketch and memory from that little spot in the woods outside Gatlinburg. Complete with Natural Tennessee Stone, driftwood and washed out stumps.

I have added a stone patio, a fire 🔥 pit, a grilling area and more, but the original Tale lives on 😊 We just celebrated our 27th Anniversary. This little Waterfall and Pond has brought us much joy ❤️ Heck, I’m still writing stories about it all these years later. 

Here’s a picture of the Waterfalls and Pond from opposing angles.



So there’s a sappy Tuesday Tale about Peace ✌🏻 Love ❤️ & Waterfalls 😊 Have a great day!

Holiday Gifts For Your Koi | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I LOVE my Koi! Just as much as my other pets… I always get my Pups a special Christmas gift – A chew bone, a sweater, snacks, a new collar, etc…

Our dogs Love their presents and accessories! But what about your Koi? | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I’ve been trying to think of a few things for my “Finned Friends”…

How about a scarf or onesie for the Koi?

I’m not sure this will work… But isn’t it cute 😊

A more practical gift would be food and snacks, but they can’t eat till spring…

They can’t eat it now, but “Spring is Coming”! You could stock up to be ready | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

A new “Koi Cave” would be a great Christmas gift idea!

A custom stone Koi Cave or an easy to install Koi Castle is always a good choice! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Koi Castles are available at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio

The ULTIMATE CHRISTMAS GIFT for your Koi (and YOU) would be a Bigger, Better KOI POND complete with Nightlights! Boom 💥

The Ultimate Christmas gift for your Koi (and YOU) would be a New, Custom Designed Pond with beautiful Waterfalls! Koi and Water Gardens go together like peas and carrots 🎅🏻 | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I hope this helps! When I realized I was snubbing my Koi on Christmas, it hit me pretty hard… Never again! I’m getting something special this year for my Koi!

Merry Christmas! 🎅🏻🎄

PS:

The countdown continues.

Monday Morning Zen – Christmas GOLD! Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Good Morning! We are mere days from Christmas 🎄 🎅🏻 and I wanted to share something with you. I have been talking about the “Ultimate Christmas Gift” being a Custom Waterfall built for you at your home. AND, I have sold a few “Christmas Pond Packages” to some very happy people 😊 But I wanted to share more info on what it’s like to have one of these ponds right outside your own door. Believe me, it’s a life changer! You literally start living out there! Cooking & eating, setting up furniture & music, etc., etc… Imagine a Zen fix everyday! It will change your life!

Working and spending time in my garden is my enjoyment, my Zen…

Here is the same Water Garden in Winter. No blooms, but still BEAUTIFUL! AND I still get my daily Zen and then some😊 |Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Check out this quick video I shot one night of my pond and outdoor kitchen area, you’ll see what I mean.
