Carter's Water Garden


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 🌊

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

I just LOVE #waterfallwednesday! It’s the day of the week that I try to share a beautiful Waterfall that we have designed and built at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio. Many are Waterfalls that we designed and created from scratch. And others are Waterfalls that we rehabbed and/or completely tore out and rebuilt.

Check out this new Waterfall. We completely tore out the old feature and reimagined/redesigned what it could be. | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

A good part of our business is the rehabilitation of and/or the complete rebuilding of existing Water Features. So many people want and need their Water features to be more Functional, Lower Maintenance and… More aesthetically pleasing 😊 This project covered all those bases.

A low maintenance Pondless Waterfall was just what the Dr. ordered. Before, they were never happy with the looks of the waterfall and they had to add water daily to keep from burning the pump out. Plus, all their fish died…

A beautiful, low maintenance Waterfall will change your life! Enjoy Waterfall Wednesday!

Merry Christmas 🎄

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

This Moss covered Waterfall has been here for several years. I stopped by for a visit the other day and got the chance to make this little video. How beautiful! And what a wonderful sound 🎵 Situated right by the deck and framed by the back windows of the home, this feature is part of the owners everyday life. Take a listen and see if it gives you a relaxing Zen feeling 🌞

Its a new week! I hope yours is a great one!

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

I was onsite at a recent residential project the other day and the sun was at a pleasing angle so I snapped a few pictures for comparison.  Later in the evening I  looked through some of the images, like I do many days, and I was blown away! It’s really nice to look back at how a garden has matured and developed over time. And you can really tell when someone is involved with their landscape and garden. 

I Love ❤️ Watergardens! This is just a snippet of this feature, but I love this view. And the sound is so relaxing 😌

I Love ❤️ My Job!

And –

I love ❤️  #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!

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

Is it just me, or is 2020 moving at a good clip… It’s already #waterfallwednesday again! Here’s a brand new creation we just turned on 💥

This is a newly created Waterfall. It’s the perfect compliment to this small, intimate courtyard. | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

A private courtyard complete with a Waterfall & Swim Stream, a stone bridge rock, a crushed stone walking area (no grass), Japanese Maples 🍁, blooming perennials, cool lighting and a Fire Pit 🔥 

Sounds like Waterfall Wednesday to me 😊
