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

Good morning 😊 This is one of my oldest Waterfalls at Carters Nursery. The moss and old driftwood stump really naturalize this Waterfall, and the sound will almost hypnotize you if you sit down and listen. It’s all about the Zen like atmosphere that it helps to create. I hope it adds a bit o’ Zen to your day…

Happy Pondering 🤔

Such a crisp, cold Spring Morning. This was probably the last frost of spring today… Now, let’s enjoy the Zen of a simple waterfall and a Koi swimming in the pond.

Before & After + 20 Years | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I LOVE before and after pictures of Landscapes. They are powerful! A simple idea can literally transform an area to something completely different. This one goes back a bit… 20 years or so. I came across these pictures while I was cleaning out some files and thought I would share them today. After all, it’s Thursday & everyone is posting throwback pics 😊

This area was planned to be a “Filler Area” in the landscape with cross ties and ground covers. BUT, I talked them into more…

This area beacame their favorite spot in and around the house. I took this after picture around 20 years after the initial installation while I was there to speak to a local Garden Club about Water Features in the Landscape. Still such a beautiful spot to spend time.

This is my offering for #Throwback Thursday😊

Have a great one!
