Beautiful ‘Indian Summer’ Weather

We are planting a beautiful Landscape today! It’s such a beautiful Fall day! WARM! 85 or so🌞 Sweaty ‘Indian Summer’ weather! I’ll take it 😊

Many trees are at peak color and the sun is warm with almost no breeze. Temps in the 80’s all week! I just love Tennessee in the Fall! #Indiansummer

Along the line of smoky hills 
The crimson forest stands, 
And all the day the blue-jay calls 
Throughout the autumn lands. 

Now by the brook the maple leans 
With all his glory spread, 
And all the sumachs on the hills 
Have turned their green to red. 

Now by great marshes wrapt in mist, 
Or past some river’s mouth, 
Throughout the long, still autumn day 
Wild birds are flying south.

~ William Wilfred Campbell

Have a great day!

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

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

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! 😊

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

This Moss covered Waterfall has been here for several years. I stopped by for a visit the other day and got the chance to make this little video. How beautiful! And what a wonderful sound 🎵 Situated right by the deck and framed by the back windows of the home, this feature is part of the owners everyday life. Take a listen and see if it gives you a relaxing Zen feeling 🌞

Its a new week! I hope yours is a great one!

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…

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

It’s #waterfallwednesday y’all! My Favorite Day of the week! This Fabulous little Pondless 
Waterfall was put here as a unique focal point in the forefront of a plant screen… PS: we didn’t want it to look like a hedgerow or “screening plants”… Boom 💥 Not only does it look great 24/7 thanks to the Landscape lighting, it sounds wonderful as well 🎶 

We even put a small “seat boulder” there at front left for the “Perfect Picture” 😊

This is a recent Water Feature that I just love ❤️ It really transformed a boring area of the landscape. Now, it’s the Central Focal point of the entire area. At night the lights come on automatically and really throw some magic 💥 PLUS : The sound is beyond compare 😘 | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee


I hope your Waterfall Wednesday goes well! From here, it’s all downhill to the weekend 😉

Sent Memories | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Are you on Facebook? If not, you might find this interesting 🤔 If you are, then you know of what I speak… Everyday I get a picture that I personally posted, usually years ago, it just pops up in my home feed, it’s labeled as a “Facebook Memory” and it tells you exactly how many years ago that you originally posted it. Then you get to look back through the comments and likes, and if you want you can share it as a Story or to your feed and friends. At first, I didn’t know what to think about it, but I have grown to enjoy them and I usually share them again. 

These pictures of our work that I have posted from years ago, just pop up as a “Facebook memory”… Actually pretty cool 😎 | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Today’s memory was 3 years old. A couple of days ago it was a 7 year memory that I had forgotten about… 

What do YOU think 🤔 about the way social media like Facebook has changed our daily lives? How, if any, has it changed yours? 

“Memories, brought to you by Facebook”… 

Screenshot of what it looks like on your device. Do you look at these? Do you find it charming, or invasive? Just asking…

I have grown to think that it helps me share what I do. Our work at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio is so visual! It’s hard to describe what we build so that you can form an accurate picture in your minds eye… So that picture you see, of what your backyard could actually look like, is worth a thousand words… 

I’m writing this outside and it’s starting to rain  🌧 I hope you enjoyed it 😊

Have a Great Weekend!

A Break From Performance To Training | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio

One of the things about running your own business is that things get, VERY busy! The old saying “If you want something done right, do it yourself” rings true daily… LOTS of hats 🧢 to wear… The daily grind can get overwhelming & you loose that line between your personal time/life and your business. 

Don’t let your business run YOU! Take time to stay organized & to train your employees and yourself 🤔

I am switching my focus for the next couple of days to ‘organizing and training in my Business. As a business owner you find yourself constantly Performing! Work work work, perform, perform, perform! DON’T forget to train some as well! That is most of our (small business owners) biggest downfalls… 

I made a commitment long ago to stay on top of Technology and of advances in my field. I also try to invest in my Team so that we ALL stay on top of our game! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I’ve got to go to my next “Zoom Room” meeting now, so I want to wish everyone a good day!

PS: I will be sharing a few things I’m learning now with you soon.

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

You blinked and it’s #waterfallwednesday again! Here’s a beautiful Waterfall we built a little while back. 

We were going for a natural look and feel with this project. There were also multiple viewpoints to think about on this one. I ❤️ Waterfalls! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio

It’s always nice to celebrate midweek with a beautiful Waterfall! 

Have a GREAT “Hump Day” 🐫

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

It’s Waterfall Wednesday! My favorite day of the week 😊 I just LOVE sharing pictures of what we do here at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio! I’ve said it for years and I’ll say it again- “Waterfalls are my business, and business is GOOD”!  Here’s a snap shot of a Waterfall from a recent project…

This picture was taken minutes after it was first plugged in… A new creation that produces positive vibrations 24/7!

Literally just brought to life, this little beauty will bring sound and life to this garden for many years to come. I ❤️ My Job! 

Thanks to all! Have a Happy Waterfall Wednesday! #waterfallwednesday
