The Art Of “Happy Little Waterfalls” | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

This is our 31st year of doing business! As you know we design and build Custom Water Features. I tell people all the time that  “Waterfalls are my business, and business is good”! So true 😊 Waterfalls are also my Art. Building waterfalls is so much more than just arranging stones and boulders… You have to have an Artists eye 👁 to build something that resonates. A feature that makes you stop and just, absorb all the elements. When you pull that off, in my opinion, you have become an artist… 

People tell me I’m an artist all the time. So I’m embracing it! Bob Ross hair and all! I ❤️ My Art! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

The old saying goes, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life”…  My new saying is going to be, 

“I don’t work, I create Happy Little Waterfalls” 😊 Boom 💥 

I ❤️ My Job! I ❤️ My Crew! And – I ❤️ My Art! 

Thanks for all your support the last 31 years! ❤️

Have a Great Day!

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

The days are growing longer and the water temperature is rising! The water temp has hit 50 💥 The Magic #! I think the fish know as well… They are active and asking to eat 😊

They have awoke! Feed me is their call!

I think the fish have been monitoring the thermometer 🌡 The water is up to 50 degrees now 😊 You know what that means! 💥

This is my favorite time of the year! Everything is coming back to life & it’s about time to start feeding the Koi again! There isn’t anything much more Zen than that to me ✌🏻

Enjoy the day! Spring is almost here 😊

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

Sometimes a simple Waterfall is all it takes to grab your attention. This is an area where two streams converge & I just love the sound and movement! I thought I would share this for #waterfallwednesday.

This little convergence isn’t the main focal point of this Water Feature by far! But, it’s all the little parts together that make a Magical Water Feature! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio

Check out the video 👇🏻

Enjoy your day! Not only is today #waterfallwednesday, it’s Hump Day! We are half way through the week!

Blogging Milestones | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I like to set goals and meet them! I also like to mark Milestones… Today is the 600th day that I have turned out a daily blog! Whew! It sure doesn’t seem like it’s been that long… Time flies! And – Yes, I have been having Fun! 😊

When I committed to a daily Blog it was a HUGE step! And at first it was a real challenge, but it seems to get easier and more fun the longer I keep the commitment 😊

As many of you know, I started blogging in 2008, but not daily… more weekly and monthly, AND I haven’t missed a month since 2008! But, It wasn’t until January 1st 2018 that I made the decision to blog daily. Now, it’s just part of what I do… And, my blog has developed some daily themes that I hope you like…

Mondays are a video of a stream and/or Waterfall, usually one that we  built, and it’s titled “Monday Morning Moment of Zen”…

Tuesdays and Thursdays are my ‘freelance days’… lately I have been doing my Blog or Vlog On Outdoor Living, focusing on Outdoor Lifestyle Areas (Spaces, patios, outdoor kitchens,outdoor rooms, etc.).

Wednesday (Hump Day) Is ALL about Waterfalls! And – KOI!

Fridays I do a Local Talk Radio Show (The ‘180’ with Dan Reaves & Sea Bass) and I follow the show up with a Blog about what was covered. I call it – The “Friday Radio Report”.

Saturdays I try to Blog about the my Nursery. What’s HOT, Events that are happening and, what is going on in & around the garden.
