Fall Beauty At Night | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

I wanted to share a couple of pictures we took last night while we were messing around in the garden.

The moon was shining down just right 🌙
This young man was having all kinds of fun 😊

Thats what its all about! Getting outside and having an enjoyable evening most any season of the year! That is one of the things I always try to achive with my designs, I try to design Gardens that have year round interest!

So, I hope you have been enjoying this beautiful Fall weather we have had… And I hope you enjoy this little glimpse of my Water Garden on a Moonlit 🌝 Indian Summer night in Autumn 🍁

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!

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

Some people call it Hump Day, I prefer #Waterfallwednesday! This old photo popped up today in my memories so I thought i would use it as my Waterfall Wednesday offering.

This one has been around a while! We built it during a rainwater harvesting class here in Jackson around 15 years ago. Its still running strong today!

I love the sound of the waterfalls! But I also love the brass statue! It really adds a nice effect to this small backyard landscape.

Today marks the half way point of the week… Its all downhill from here 😊

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

I was getting ready to post my #waterfallwednesday picture of the day on here this morning and a Facebook Memory popped up… So, I decided to use this Memory Picture from several years back. Its a simple waterfall, but still one of my favorites even after all these years 😊 The moss has grown over rocks and the plants have all matured so nice. It feels so natural.

If you have ever been to Carters Nursery Pond & Patio, you have seen this Waterfall. Its still one of my favorites even aftwr all these years… It just gets more beautiful as time passes 😊

Get out there and enjoy the day! Half the work week is gone… #Waterfallwednesday

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

Filed under: Food, Fountains, General Blog Entry's, God Bless America, Koi, Koi Ponds, Lake and Pond, Landscaping & Gardening, Love, Nursery, Outdoor Lifestyles, Pond Tips, water garden, Waterfalls | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

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 | #waterfallwednesday | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Jump down, turn around, and its #waterfallwednesday once again… I don’t know about you, but 2021 has flown by ✈️ Thank goodness for Waterfalls 😊 They slow things down a bit… They help you relax and forget about things. Here is a beautiful Waterfall i posted a while back and I promised a completed picture when i had one. Well here ya’ go – A beautiful waterfall and stream complete with some beautiful plants and pine straw mulch. I hope you like it😊

Waterfall Wednesday is hard to beat 😊

This one changed this entire backyard! no more road noise! No more blank/boring hillside! Now they are enjoying the sight and sound of flowing water. Groups of birds fly in to bathe and eat. Even deer have dropped by to check things out. At night when the lights kick on… Show Stopper folks! 💥

Y’all enjoy this beautiful day! From here I can almost see the weekend!!!

#waterfallwednesday!

Water Feature Wednesday! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Fall is in full swing and its already #waterfallwednesday… Or should i say, Water Feature Wednesday 😊 After all, I love all Water Features!

Heres a really cool Water Feature we just installed. Its called a Disappearing Fountain, because the resivour is underground and the circulating water goes down into the basin making it look like the moving water just disappears…

These are so nice! they are extremely low maintenance and you can get really creative with what you use as your fountain head. This one is a Stacked Slate Sphere and everyone just loves it! what do you think?

Its Water Feature Wednesday! Have a great day!
