Waterfall Wednesday | #Waterfallwednesday | Paris | Jackson, TN

“Waterfalls are my business and business is good!” Oh how I Love saying that 😊 It’s really a blessing when get to do something for a living that you really Love. And I Love ❤️ Waterfalls!
Waterfalls change everything… Seriously! I can’t think of any other Landscape feature that will transform and dramatically change an area like a Beautiful Waterfall! Take this photo and short video for instance. This Waterfall Fountain is in the foyer of one of the nicest restaurants in Paris! I know it’s a long distance from many, but if you’ve never been to Paris… Forget the Eiffel Tower… It’s worth it just to see this Waterfall! 🌊 and to taste the food!

When I walked into this entryway, I immediately stopped! A cool blast of air hits you and your bathed in the sound of this Water Feature! It set such a nice tone! I hear a bird chirping too! 🐦 Then they followed it up with excellent service and delicious food 🥘 🍲

I very rarely give a public review of local restaurants, but this was such a nice experience all the way around, I feel like they deserve a mention… So if your looking for a nice place in Paris, try …

Mousto’s in Paris, TN (expect a wait.) But it’s worth it😊


The Eiffel Towel (mini), The Riviera (tennessee), the savoir’ faire (southern)… Ahhhh, how I love Paris in the Summer!

I hope the clip of this Waterfall makes your day as well! There’s nothing like a Waterfall to set the mood 😊 Have a great afternoon…

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

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

2021 is moving right along and here it is, already #waterfallwednesday! I thought I would share one of my personal Waterfalls today…. I have a bunch, a collection, an… obsession 😊 Yes, I have a problem… I guess I should introduce myself.
Hello, my name is Mark Carter & I am a Waterfallaholic 😇

This is one of my favorite Waterfalls. It’s so simple… Moss covered and flowing out from under a big old Cedar Tree Stump. It’s the headwaters to a long flowing stream that feeds a beautiful Koi Pond. Whew 😅 I’m glad I got that off my chest. And I hope y’all enjoy Waterfalls as well! But be careful, they are addictive… Enjoy with moderation 😎

Have a great evening!

PS: Do you know the difference between a Waterfall ‘Enthusiast’ and a “Waterfallaholic”???
Answer : Waterfallaholics go to meetings…

Sunday Reflections…

All the holidays have gone by and tomorrow we go back to work and do it all over again… Many with a list of resolutions that will change their lives… Workout, save, loose weight, build, change, etc. and they work a little at it, but also, they wait for the ‘magic’ of the new year to happen. I’ve been sipping coffee thinking 🤔 about this for a little while this morning.

Fill these in ONLY if your willing to work HARD! Otherwise, save the paper…

I guess this thought is really about me and my struggles… But I hope it rings true to others as well. To have continued success and to grow, I Must keep showing up and doing great work! Which also means I MUST keep believing in and caring about and Loving what I do!
THAT is my 2021 Resolution! And the only one I need to focus on.

Happy New Year! 💥❤️🙏🏻

‘You’re waiting for something magical to happen in the New Year so that your dreams will come true! But the greatest and the most real magic is working and striving hard to achieve the goal!’

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!

Looking at the Positive Side of Things…

Summer heat is still here, but it’s winding down… Next weekend is the big Labor Day Celebration that we all look forward too. Cookouts, boating, swimming, volleyball, etc. And even though it’s the ‘unofficial end of Summer’, it’s a long weekend for many & the beginning of a new season, So we got that goin for us 😊

What else is lining up for Holidays and long weekends in our future 👇🏻

2020 has been a struggle, but there’s always something positive if you look.

So, I’m gonna take the small things, the good things of 2020 as I find them and be thankful. I have also found that if you sit down with a pen 🖊 and paper 📝 and write down your blessings as you count them, it will blow you away!  ❤️

 

PS: Here’s one – It’s Saturday! 💥

Have a Great Day!

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” 🐫

Pond TALE Tuesday… | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I LOVE designing and building Custom Water Features! Many of my designs start with a story… Or a ‘Tale’ if you will. Like this one Today for instance… 

The Tale is, on my beautiful brides and my Honeymoon, we drove to the Mountains of East Tennessee. We had a big old time too! ❤️ One day in particular, we decided to get out and ride around and see where the road would lead us. Long story short, we took a picnic 🧺 lunch and headed down a trail into the woods … We ended up stopping by a beautiful stone creek with Several little Waterfalls and a perfect spot to sit down and eat. My wife Jo Was so struck by the spot that I sketched the little stream and waterfalls out on a napkin and promised to build her a spot “just like it” at home when we got back 😊

This is what I came up with based on my sketch and memory from that little spot in the woods outside Gatlinburg. Complete with Natural Tennessee Stone, driftwood and washed out stumps.

I have added a stone patio, a fire 🔥 pit, a grilling area and more, but the original Tale lives on 😊 We just celebrated our 27th Anniversary. This little Waterfall and Pond has brought us much joy ❤️ Heck, I’m still writing stories about it all these years later. 

Here’s a picture of the Waterfalls and Pond from opposing angles.



So there’s a sappy Tuesday Tale about Peace ✌🏻 Love ❤️ & Waterfalls 😊 Have a great day!

I LOVE The Nightlife! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

The night time garden is my favorite! Grilling a late dinner, a cozy fire 🔥 & feeding my Koi ❤️ Don’t get much better than that! Here’s a short video of the waterfalls with the lighting from last night. 



Y’all have a great Friday! AND a great weekend!

The Art Of “Happy Little Waterfalls” | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

This is our 31st year of doing business! As you know we design and build Custom Water Features. I tell people all the time that  “Waterfalls are my business, and business is good”! So true 😊 Waterfalls are also my Art. Building waterfalls is so much more than just arranging stones and boulders… You have to have an Artists eye 👁 to build something that resonates. A feature that makes you stop and just, absorb all the elements. When you pull that off, in my opinion, you have become an artist… 

People tell me I’m an artist all the time. So I’m embracing it! Bob Ross hair and all! I ❤️ My Art! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

The old saying goes, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life”…  My new saying is going to be, 

“I don’t work, I create Happy Little Waterfalls” 😊 Boom 💥 

I ❤️ My Job! I ❤️ My Crew! And – I ❤️ My Art! 

Thanks for all your support the last 31 years! ❤️

Have a Great Day!
