Two for Two for Tuesday | Twin, Twin Falls | Carters Nursery Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Good morning! So it’s Tuesday & I was thinking of that “Two for Tuesday” thing that’s so popular… And I thought 💭 2 separate things? Or 2 things together? Huh 🤔 So, here’s my take.
2 beautiful sets of twin Waterfalls that we have designed and built over the years.

We built this one many years ago (decades) It’s at a neighborhood entrance, so this is a good example of a commercial application of a Pondless Waterfall. Twin upper falls flow down into a Pondless Basin. I haven’t touched it in years… It’s held up well!
Here’s #2 for today “two’fer”… This one is much more personalized. Twin waterfalls at the top combine and flow down into a backyard pond. This one is residential and is a beauty!

So what do you think? Two for Two for Tuesday! 💥

Have a great day!

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

What a Beautiful, Hot 🥵 Day! Early Summer in the South… As you may, or may not know, we are getting ready for our annual Summer Pond Tour. My Nursery and home is on the Pond Tour, with several other properties, so I’ve been out in the evenings and early morning hours straitening up a bit, adding a plant here and there and doing some photography. I thought I would share one of my Water Gardens with you that is on the Pond Tour. This is a late evening shot right at dark, probably my favorite time of the day this time of the year.

This is my oldest Pond at the Nursery. My Grandmother Kay lived in the house next to the Pond, so I always called it ’Grandma’s Pond’ ❤️

This little Pond sits right between the house and the Koi Shack. There is a Blue Stone patio on one side and a bench on the other… Perfect 😊

When you walk out the back door of the Koi Shack, your right by Grandma’s Pond’. Feel free to sit a spell…

I hope you are having the best Waterfall Wednesday ever! #waterfallwednesday

PS: Come by during business hours and see Grandmas’s Pond in person. Or, come see it (and Many others ) Saturday, June 25th. on our Upcoming Summer Pond Tour! Heres a short video with info for ya’ 👇🏻

Have a Great Day!

Waterfall Wednesday | Pondless Waterfall | #Waterfallwednesday | Carters Nursery Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

I thought this was a timely shot of a nice Waterfall. This pictures was taken right after dark on a nice evening… Our evenings are about to get a bit longer thanks to Daylight Savings! And its Crappie season at the TN River! This beautiful Pondless Waterfall is at my favorite place to fish for Crappie – Birdsong Resort right outside Camden, TN.

I just love this Pondless Waterfall! | Waterfall Wednesday | Pondless Waterfall | #Waterfallwednesday | Carters Nursery Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Its Waterfall Wednesday! This weekend we set our clocks ⏰ forward to have more daylight in the evening… I’m ready!

Have a Great #Waterfallwednesday! I’ll see you out on the river 🎣

Don’t blink 👁 It’s #Waterfallwednesday again! I have been going through photos putting together a slideshow presentation for a wonderful group of local gardeners. I just really enjoy looking back at projects we have been involved in! Especially when I get to use the information to help others who are interested in our wonderful hobby of water gardening!
So since I have a few pictures at hand, I will post several Waterfalls for you today! All designed and installed by the team at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio!

I hope these images lift your day! All of these are in a clients backyard paradise and I just bet you that they are sitting out there right about now, enjoying the sight and sound of their own private Waterfall.

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

I was getting ready to post my #waterfallwednesday picture of the day on here this morning and a Facebook Memory popped up… So, I decided to use this Memory Picture from several years back. Its a simple waterfall, but still one of my favorites even after all these years 😊 The moss has grown over rocks and the plants have all matured so nice. It feels so natural.

If you have ever been to Carters Nursery Pond & Patio, you have seen this Waterfall. Its still one of my favorites even aftwr all these years… It just gets more beautiful as time passes 😊

Get out there and enjoy the day! Half the work week is gone… #Waterfallwednesday
