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

Here we are in June! And it’s already #waterfallwednesday 🌊 I recently went by a clients home who had built their own Pond and Waterfall many years ago. They really enjoy the outdoor lifestyle and just LOVE their Pond! ❤️ Overtime, the plants and trees have grown and pushed on the skimmer and the liner and they told me “it’s been over 15 years since we put this Pond in and it’s time for some maintenance & repairs, plus – we want a new look with the stream and waterfall”…

The hydraulic pressure that tree roots can produce is Amazing! What’s even more amazing to me is that this was installed over 15 years ago and has withstood all this pressure and hasn’t broken or leaked! We only use and sell Aquascape Filters, this is why!

After we removed the old skimmer, trimmed roots, etc… We replaced the old skimmer with a new unit and then moved on to redoing the stream and falls.

The original stream and waterfall was installed by the homeowner himself! He did a great job in my opinion! He had never done this before and it lasted over 15 years with no leaks or problems. That’s Awesome! But like many Pond Owners, after years, they are ready for a fresh look.

We brought in some larger stone, much of it was Moss stone to have that immediate effect of age and we also added lights 💥 Now they have 2 Ponds… The daytime feature that they already love and now feature #2 – the new nighttime Pond!

A shot of the redesigned waterfall and stream.
Here’s a wide angle shot. Does it look like the same stream to you?

Everyone is happy with the final results. 💥 Boom A win win! Always a great project! And Waterfall Wednesday, is always a great day!

Here’s to #waterfallwednesday !

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

We have already reached the mid point of the week, the day that starts the roll toward the weekend, YES! It’s #waterfallwednesday!
No matter how many times I see this waterfall or sit by it to relax in the evening, it never fails to please. Last night I found myself returning to the well once more…

This little Waterfall is in my greenhouse. I love ❤️ sitting out there and listening to the Falls and watching the light flicker and get thrown all around by the waterfalls movement. It’s very hypnotic and relaxing.

Waterfall Wednesday is always a great day!

Enjoy!

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

Yes, another week is flying by ✈️ It’s already #waterfallwednesday 🌊

Many people ask me what my favorite Waterfall that we’ve built is…? Well, it’s the one we are building right now of course 😊

Not all Waterfalls are huge and dramatic. Some are gentle and meandering, with streams and lots of small falls and guess what… They have a HUGE impact in the Landscape!
One of the main things in my opinion, is that they fit the scale of the existing Landscape and topography. In other words, if you put a big mound in the middle of a flat space, expect the ‘Volcano’ effect. I try to always make it feel as natural and real as possible.

We are half way to the weekend! Boom 💥

Have a Great Waterfall Wednesday!

Yes, time is flying by 🌬 So you must be having FUN 🤩 I know I am! It’s Springtime in Tennessee… Here we are at the halfway point of yet another week. Some people call it hump day 🐫… I call it #waterfallwednesday! 💥

A wonderful client sent this to me the other morning. We installed this waterfall over a decade ago and it’s still looking great! Add in her beautiful landscape and awesome pool… It’s a jaw dropper 😳

When you have a Waterfall in your backyard, every day is waterfall day! 💥

Here’s a closeup from under the bridge. I just LOVE this Water Feature! ❤️

Enjoy this beautiful day! And try to enjoy a Waterfall today! After all, “It’s #waterfallwednesday”! 💥

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

What a beautiful day! Kinda cold 🥶 this morning, but a gorgeous sunrise and the birds are singing and the whole world is in bloom it seems 🌺 Perfect setting for a #waterfallwednesday.

Today’s offering is a recent Waterfall “Re-do”. We call them “Facelifts” 😊 Check out this before and after…

The homeowner loved the sound of the falls, but not the look… So he called us in to talk Redesign. We tore it all down, added proper filtration, a new liner and built them a proper Waterfall. What do you think?

These jobs are many times the most fulfilling. We turn a problem into your favorite thing about your backyard 😊 Feels good!

I hope you all enjoy the day! Life is too short not too ❤️

Peace ✌🏻 Love ❤️ and Waterfalls 🌊

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

Some people call it Hump Day… I call it #waterfallwednesday (In the voice of Carl)😂

Yes, we again find ourselves at the midpoint of another week, and as they say “It’s all downhill from here”… Maybe that’s why Wednesdays and Waterfalls work so well together? They both flow downward to an end 😊

This is Luna standing by one of our Waterfalls. She is a beautiful calico (one of our “Nursery Rescues”) and loves to be right there with you when your out around the nursery.

You have probably seen this kitty cat 🐈 before and this Waterfall as well, but, not as much as I have 😊 And I still just love both of em’❤️
So enjoy your Wednesday! It’s all downhill from here… #waterfallwednesday

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

Don’t blink 👁 … It’s Monday once again! “Got anymore of that Weekend”??? The older I get, the more I become ‘pro 3 day weekend’ 😊 Thank goodness for my Waterfalls! This time of year, as everything is waking up, coming out and the weather is getting warmer, I’m out by my Ponds and Waterfalls more and more. My Waterfalls and Koi make mornings and evenings so much more relaxing and bearable. Especially on a busy Monday morning…

Enjoy this Little ‘Moment of Zen’…

Let’s all have a wonderful Monday morning!

Monday Morning Moment Of Zen

I don’t know about you, but I could use a little Zen today. I sat by this Pond over the weekend to think about what’s been going on over the last few days. This was my Grandma’s Pond and Waterfall and it really speaks to me when I need a little piece of mind. I hope in this little snippet you will see and hear what I’m talking about.

Within a matter of minutes the sound of the Waterfall and the swimming Koi just melt the tension away. I can feel my heart rate slow and my mind relax. A Waterfall is a Magical thing…

Have a great week!
