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

Anytime I’m near a large body of water I look for some kind of inflow. I just love little creeks and natural streams and Waterfalls. Here’s one from Saturday afternoon. When I saw it I said, “there’s a perfect little moment of Zen.”

I hope this brings a little ‘Zen’ to your day😊

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

I was out on a clients property the other day & he asked if I would like to see the Creek… Yes was the answer of course 😊 Even on a Hot August day the water is nice and cool 😎 Being down there by the creek was so peaceful and ‘Zen like’ … The sound of the water with the frogs & birds & cicadas is almost Hypnotic.

This is privately owned property & is the homeowners personal respite from the world. We are going to build them a custom Water Feature up by their house so they can enjoy & relax to the sound of water all the time 😊

Beautiful Creek

I hope this little video brings a little ‘Zen’ into your day. When I want to relax, I just close my eyes and listen to the waterfalls & clear my mind. Within a few minutes I relax, my heart rate slows, my blood pressure drops & I literally feel better. Try it…

After a week of storms, when all the rain finally quit, I walked down to where the drainage/Creek goes under the road at the Nursery. It has its own natural beauty 😊 Once it subsides we have a bit of cleanup to do, but thank the Lord, no major damage.

Check out the flow of water in this short video. Maybe the sound of the flowing creek will add a little Zen to your morning 😊

Have a Great Monday!

This ones a little different than usual, BUT – there’s not much more of a free “Zen like” feeling than being on the open water in your kayak just floating down the river 😊 This is a local place that’s convenient & nice. Their rates are fair & the people are friendly. I am ready for Spring & “river weather”! Enjoy 😉

 

Happy Pondering! And stay warm this week!

Naturalistic Waterfalls | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio| Jackson, TN

Let’s try this again 😊 Yesterday I had someone tell me that a video I posted had gone bad. So I checked it and they were right, I don’t know what happened, but you can’t see it & I couldn’t fix it by editing… So, I figured I would repost it.

I really love this feature! BIG flow, naturalistic waterfalls and creek flowing into a lake. We tried to make this one look as natural as possible! Big boulders, moss, driftwood and natural stumps that look like they were put there by storms and heavy water flows, etc.. We hope you like them too 😊

I had a great day exploring the Tennessee Aquarium last week. The displays are beautifully created! Great attention to detail is required to build a Feature that looks and feels Natural… The very top of the Aquarium is where the “natural” flow of water originates from streams & springs and represents a natural biome where native critters live. This area is home to the otters as well as some beautiful Waterfalls and streams. I hope this Stream and Waterfall lend a little Zen to your day!  

Make Monday a FUN Day!

Large Waterfalls are AWESOME! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

We used large mossy boulders and creek stone to construct this ‘Naturalistic’ Water Feature. We were striving to look as “Natural” as possible, so we used specimen quality boulders & cedar driftwood & stumps to help achieve our goal. We didn’t want the stone work to look “Done” or man made in any way & I really think we achieved what we were looking for. Luckily for us, so did our clients 😊 I wanted to share this today & I hope y’all enjoy. I always appreciate a little feedback, so let me know what you think.

 

Thanks! AND… Happy Pondering! 🙂
