You look out the window and see this waterfall flowing as a bird splashes and bathes… It draws you outside! Guess where you will want to enjoy your morning coffee ☕️ or your evening cocktaIls 🍸 Thats right 😊 Out there by your little oasis… Thats what #Waterfallwednesday is all about! Enjoying and sharing the beauty and serenity of Waterfalls.

This week is half over! Happy Waterfall Wednesday!

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

Fall is in full splendor 🍂 We have peaked in our Fall color and soon the wind will sweep it all away 🌬 I wanted to share my little view of Autumn Beauty with you this morning. The colorful foliage with the crashing Waterfalls provides the perfect place of Zen on a crisp Monday morning…

Get out today and take a walk or a ride around the neighborhood and enjoy the Fall color while its still here… It will be gone in the blink of an eye 👁

Have a great day!

Pond Tip Tuesday! | Fall Pond Checklist | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Fall is in full season! In fact we are only a couple of weeks from Peak Viewing time for Fall foliage in TN! Then you will again realize where ”Fall” gets its name… 🍁 🍁🍁

Fall will bring many changes to our Gardens and Ponds, its important to stay ahead of the game!

I always try to post proactive things you can do to keep your Water Garden clean and your Koi healthy over the Fall & Winter. Things like – Cutting your aquatic plants back, using pond netting, watching your skimmer more closely, feeding Cool Temp Koi Food, etc. –

We stock a complete line of Water Treatment Products and supplies for your Pond and Water Garden. Including Cold Temp Beneficial Bacteria, Leaf Nets and Cool Season Fish Food | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

We stock bulk Leaf Netting at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio in Jackson, TN | It will keep debris out of your pond & help protect your fish from predators during the cold, bare months.

Pond Netting is a great tool to help keep the maintenance of your Water Garden or Koi Pond down to a minimum over the fall and winter. | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee


Switch to Cold Water Bacteria NOW! –

Our Cold Water Beneficial Bacteria works and keeps on working when the plants and fish aren’t active and 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 like ammonia, nitrates & phosphates. These things make for poor water quality, reduced water clarity and can have catastrophic effects on your fishes health.

Keep an Eye 👁 on Your Skimmer –

Your Pond skimmer is a workhorse this time of year! Its catching and capturing all that debris that would otherwise end up on the bottom of your Pond! BUT, you have to empty it often in the Fall 🍁

Or, you end up with this 👇🏻


Every Pond should have a floating Pond thermometer! Our finned friends are cold blooded & water temperature is very important when it comes to seasonal feeding times. Pick one up at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio.

This is standard equipment in every Koi Pond and Water Garden. 

My final Pond Tip for today is this – Switch to Cool Season Koi Food NOW…

When the water temperature drops below 60 degrees Fahrenheit you should switch to a Lower Protein, Cool Season Koi Food. We like to call it the ‘Rule Of 60’… | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN


Switching to a Cool Temperature Koi Food is very important for the health of your Koi! 

Well, there you have it, a little reminder to help keep the Maintenance to a minimum and to maximize the enjoyment of our wonderful hobby!

Happy Pondering! 🍁

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

Can you believe how fast this Summer is passing by… It’s already Waterfall Wednesday!
Todays Waterfall goes back a ways… We first built this Waterfall around 27 years ago 🤩

Recently we did a little “Facelift Work” on it and we all think it turned out great 👍🏻

They still have most of the original Koi that we put in the pond all those years ago 🤩 And boy have they grown!

Hey, I remember you 😊
Got something to eat for an old friend? ❤️

#Waterfallwednesday is always a great day! Especially when you looking back at something you did so long ago 😊

Have a Great Day!

PS: I can almost see the weekend from here…
