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

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

Evening feeding time is a daily ritual around here. We feed the Koi in all the Ponds and in all the different Fish Tanks as well. It’s a labor of Love ❤️ 



They are waiting everyday for their meal and I  think they enjoy our company as well. Like old friends… 

Have a Great Monday!

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

Waterfall Wednesday! AKA: Hump Day! Nothing gets me over that hump better than the energy of a Beautiful Waterfall! This one is in the center of a beautiful resort community, nestled along the banks of Kentucky Lake. 

I took this picture last night after Midnight. It’s a beautiful Pondless Waterfall Feature at Birdsong Resort and Marina. I just Love Waterfalls ❤️

Waterfall Wednesday is one of my favorite days of the week! 


Have a Great One!

Wakey – wakey, it’s Waterfall Wednesday! 

We got to revisit this project recently & Adam took a few awesome pictures. WOW! After 10 years running 24/7 all I can say is, it has aged well 😊 | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

We are past the 4th of July now and entering the “Dog days of Summer”… A shady spot with a soothing waterfall and mossy stream -sounds like the perfect spot to ride it out! 
We designed and built this one around 10 years ago and as you see, it has aged well 😊 That’s one of the magical things about a Pond and Waterfall – They just keep getting more beautiful as the years go by….

I hope you enjoy the picture and I hope you have a great #waterfallwednesday !

 

Happy Pondering 🤔

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

Good morning! It’s Waterfall Wednesday 😊 

A LOT of my inspiration comes from Nature! I have learned so much from observing natural waterfalls and streams!

I was thinking a lot about why I Love ❤️ waterfalls so much. And also where I get my inspiration to design and build them. It really comes from a love of nature. Streams and creeks and natural waterfalls are always the most beautiful! My goal is to replicate them. To design and build a Water Feature in your backyard that looks, sounds and feels like a natural, organic Waterfall… That’s our goal! 
Today is #waterfallwednesday, I couldn’t narrow down just one image that felt complete today, so here are several 😊 Click on this link and check em out 👇🏻

Have a great, Waterfall Wednesday!

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

I wanted to share a beautiful, private backyard I got to visit last week. The home is surrounded by gardens! Complete with gazebos and pathways and Bubbling Fountains with intimate/hidden little sitting areas (opportunities ❤️) within the outdoor spaces. WOW! I didn’t want to leave 😊 

Then I went to the Backyard Garden 😍 Check it out 👇🏻



We got to help redo this stream and waterfall that your looking down as it flows into the pond. We used the stone they had on site in the “re-configuration” and it turned out beautifully I think. So did they ❤️ 

 This is such A special garden that I asked them if they would like to be included in a future Pond/Garden Tour. She said she would LOVE to be on the tour 😊 So, some of you lucky folks will be able to stroll through what I consider to be one of the best designed and maintained gardens in West Tennessee in the near future.

Enjoy your Monday!

Throwback Thursday | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Sometimes my blog writes itself 😊 Here’s a great #throwbackthursday picture for ya’! 

This picture was taken right after we finished the initial installation around 10 years ago.


We built this Pondless Waterfall about 10 years ago. We went back to clean up and service it recently and installed a brand new Foot Bridge! 

The new bridge is built from treated lumber and has several coats of paint. It should be around for the long haul! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio

The original bridge was cedar and lasted a good while. This new bridge is built from treated lumber and should last much longer than 10 years 🤞🏻

Dog days are pleasant when you have a place to cool off 😊
PS: Dogs LOVE Waterfalls!


Throwback Thursday is a special day indeed 😊

Y’all have a wonderful day!

Is it just me, or is 2020 moving at a good clip… It’s already #waterfallwednesday again! Here’s a brand new creation we just turned on 💥

This is a newly created Waterfall. It’s the perfect compliment to this small, intimate courtyard. | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

A private courtyard complete with a Waterfall & Swim Stream, a stone bridge rock, a crushed stone walking area (no grass), Japanese Maples 🍁, blooming perennials, cool lighting and a Fire Pit 🔥 

Sounds like Waterfall Wednesday to me 😊
