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! 🌞

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

July is always a hot, sticky month in Tennessee! The “Dog Days” of Summer are upon us for sure… But, if you really want to cool down around Carters Nursery, just ask a cat where to find a good spot 😎

The cats that live around Cartercountry seem to Love this spillways pot. They drink from it and lie down in its shadow most everyday. | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

July 3rd. to August 11th. are designated the “Dog Days of Summer”… Maybe we should call em the Cat Days 😊

It’s #waterfallwednesday

Monday Morning Moment Of Zen | Carter’s Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Just a simple, flowing creek… listen for a moment and your hooked. I went out yesterday and walked some local creeks and river banks. All my designs are influenced by the streams and creeks of Western Tennessee where I grew up, and they are still what I seek out to recharge my spirit and my energy. Just a simple, flowing creek is all it takes for me 😊

There’s nothing more Zen like than that right there. Have a great week!

Sunday Reflections…

I always try to write my Sunday Blog first thing Sunday morning and publish it immediately. But, there’s always the exception… I just found service to send this little teaser today. We (Jo and I) are out exploring the backroads today. It started in a rainstorm and has continued into a beautiful, humid sunny day 🌞 So, I will post some good pictures later when I have the time to review for a minute. Enjoy this beautiful Summer Sunday!

“Roads go ever ever on,
Over rock and under tree,
By caves where never sun has shone,
By streams that never find the sea;
Over snow by winter sown,
And through the merry flowers of June,
Over grass and over stone,
And under mountains in the moon.”

~ J.R.R. Tolkien

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!
