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

I love beautiful sunny days! Even cold ones like today. It’s January, but the days are getting longer… Spring is slowly getting closer by the day! If you get out in the garden and look 👀 you will see all kinds of emerging plants, buds swelling, aquatic plants showing growth on the edges of streams and in the pond. It sure makes me feel good! Today is the 1st Waterfall Wednesday of 2021! So I thought I would share a simple picture of what’s coming in the not to distant future…

I’m looking forward to the coming Spring! It won’t be long now! Spring is Coming!

A simple Waterfall and stream make such a wonderful sound! It feeds much more than the aquatic plants and birds that come to drink and bathe 😊

Have a great #waterfallwednesday! From here, it’s all downhill to the weekend!

The Last Waterfall Wednesday Of 2020 | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

New Year’s Day is only 2 days away… It’s almost time to say bye bye 👋🏻 to 2020! Ive been trying to find a picture of the perfect Waterfall to post for the last #waterfallwednesday of the year.

I couldn’t decide on just 1 picture… So, I made a collage of several images of beautiful Water Features. I hope everyone is ready to move into a new year! And, I hope that 2021 will be the best year ever!

Waterfalls are my business and my passion! So trying to pick one that’s my “favorite” is impossible. They are all so beautiful and unique. So I cheated 😊 and made a collage of many beautiful images…

Here’s to a New Year! And, here’s to Beautiful Waterfalls! 💥

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

I just LOVE #waterfallwednesday! It’s the day of the week that I try to share a beautiful Waterfall that we have designed and built at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio. Many are Waterfalls that we designed and created from scratch. And others are Waterfalls that we rehabbed and/or completely tore out and rebuilt.

Check out this new Waterfall. We completely tore out the old feature and reimagined/redesigned what it could be. | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

A good part of our business is the rehabilitation of and/or the complete rebuilding of existing Water Features. So many people want and need their Water features to be more Functional, Lower Maintenance and… More aesthetically pleasing 😊 This project covered all those bases.

A low maintenance Pondless Waterfall was just what the Dr. ordered. Before, they were never happy with the looks of the waterfall and they had to add water daily to keep from burning the pump out. Plus, all their fish died…

A beautiful, low maintenance Waterfall will change your life! Enjoy Waterfall Wednesday!

Merry Christmas 🎄

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

What day is it you ask… Waterfall Wednesday of course! Its December and everyone here at Carters Nursery is in the Christmas spirit!

Sprite, our Nursery Elf, wants to tell you that even though 2020 has been CRAZY! Christmas is ON! Santa and all the elves are busy getting ready, so take heart! Christmas IS coming!

We were lucky to have an Elf move in! He has really helped us get ready for Christmas! Come by and see us and say, HI!

Sprite has 2 rules – #1 Since he is an aquatic elf and lives in or near water, he says “Always spend time by your Waterfall”! and #2 ALWAYS keep the spirit of Christmas 🎄 in your heart! ❤️

From the whole team at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio – Have a wonderful Waterfall Wednesday! and, Merry Christmas! 🎄🎅🏻❤️

Blink of the eye 👁 and it’s #waterfallwednesday again…

This weeks featured Waterfall is a newly built Pondless Waterfall Feature. This Waterfall sits on a hill flowing down toward the back patio. 🔥 It’s always nice to have a hill to work with!

We had a nice slope to work with on this project. When you look out the back windows from inside the home, this is you focal point! It’s inviting you to come out and listen and watch the birds bathe and drink. Paradise Found!

We put a variable speed pump on this feature so it could be turned up or down at will. Check out this little video below, this is at the lowest setting 👇🏻

Waterfall Wednesday is always a special day! Today is even more meaningful, because tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day 🦃 This new waterfall will be the hit and the conversation piece of the celebration 😊

Have a great #Waterfallwednesday! And –

Happy Thanksgiving!

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

Have you ever sat and just enjoyed a good fire 🔥 The sound and the flame will relax you, almost hypnotize you. Waterfalls work the same way… The splashing, bubbling and churning of the Waterfalls literally capture your complete attention and take you to a different place. That’s why I tell people that bringing a Waterfall into your Backyard will literally change your life!

This is my offering for #waterfallwednesday! Can you imagine sitting on the boulder in the forefront and feeding your Koi. Listening to the sound of the waterfall in the background is just another benefit 😊

A Waterfall is a magical thing! Especially when its right outside your back door! I hope you like this Waterfall! It’s my offering for #waterfallwednesday!

Have a Great Day!

Guess what day it is? Guess… what… Day It Is? Hey, Karen, guess what day it is…? It’s Waterfall Wednesday! WoooHooo! Boom 💥

Here’s a recent Waterfall we designed and built for a client. Now for her, Everyday is Waterfall Day! 🌊

The mossy boulders and native stone help to make this brand new Waterfall look like it’s been here for years. | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I LOVE ❤️ plugging in a new feature and seeing it come to life! The best part is when the homeowner sees it for the first time 😊 Magic 💥 I have seen laughter, WOW’s, hugs 🤗 & tears 😭 of joy. Waterfalls change your life!

Have a great #waterfallwednesday !

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

Good Morning! It’s time to shuck them sheets and hit them streets! It’s Waterfall Wednesday!

I though I would share this little beauty with y’all today. This Waterfall is situated right beside the back patio and provides a wonderful sound and view from anywhere in the back yard! PS: The homeowner can also hear the sound through their bedroom window… Can you say Paradise 😊

We are always trying to create the most beautiful waterfall possible. Using native mossy boulders, aquatic plants and drift wood help give the appearance of age and really add some instant Magic 💥

It’s “Hump Day” folks! Which in my world means it’s #Waterfallwednesday 🌊

Hold on as we roll downhill to the weekend!

I Love designing and building Custom Water Features! So projects like this one are special. Building a feature as close to the look and feel of a “Natural Waterfall” was our goal on this one. Each project we do is a custom, one of a kind feature. In other words, creating Living, Moving Art is our business. From design to completion, From Dream to Reality! That’s what we do… 

Pictures don’t do this feature justice! But, the pictures are pretty darn nice 😊 The team at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio hit it out of the park on this one.

I hope you have a great #waterfallwednesday! It’s all downhill to the weekend from here! 😊

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

Don’t blink, it’s #Waterfallwednesday again 😊 We are into our second day of Fall & it feels so good! I wanted to share this naturalistic Waterfall with you today. 
Nestled in the corner of a private backyard garden with views from inside and out. The pond comes right up to the edge of the overhanging deck and really creates some magic 💥

We built this beauty several years back. It has matured nicely. The moss has spread everywhere. I Love ❤️ Waterfalls! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Martin, TN

I love visiting features that we installed years earlier. Seeing how the plants have matured and how the moss has spread over the rocks always excites me 😊

Waterfalls are my business, and business is good! 

Enjoy your day! It’s all downhill to the weekend from here…
