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

Turn around and its Waterfall Wednesday again! Which by the way is my favorite day of the week! Not only do we get to enjoy beautiful Waterfalls, its the halfway point of the week 💥 YES, thats the weekend you see in the distance ❤️ Love it!
My offering is a beautiful backyard pond with twin upper waterfalls that flow under a stone bridge before combing into a final cascade that flows into the pond below. Here are a few different prospectives to view…

A beautiful close in shot for #Waterfallwednesday.
A wider shot that shows the bridge stone and the falls as they flow into the pond.
The view from below… The Koi’s view of the world… Maybe the most beautiful view…

I sure do hope you enjoy this beautiful #Waterfallwednesday !

Happy Pondering!

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

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

Can you believe how fast this Summer is passing by… It’s already Waterfall Wednesday!
Todays Waterfall goes back a ways… We first built this Waterfall around 27 years ago 🤩

Recently we did a little “Facelift Work” on it and we all think it turned out great 👍🏻

They still have most of the original Koi that we put in the pond all those years ago 🤩 And boy have they grown!

Hey, I remember you 😊
Got something to eat for an old friend? ❤️

#Waterfallwednesday is always a great day! Especially when you looking back at something you did so long ago 😊

Have a Great Day!

PS: I can almost see the weekend from here…

I’m Wanting A Backyard Pond | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

There’s an old saying in my business- “Everybody wants a waterfall, they just don’t know it… Yet”!


PS: It became an old saying, because it’s true!

“I’m wanting a backyard Pond”… I hear this quite often in my business. Usually they have seen a beautiful Water Garden or Waterfall and want one as well (that old saying comes true again)…

Come by the nursery one day soon and check out our Water Feature displays, Aquatic Plants and Koi. One of our wonderful staff members will answer your questions, help you with information and sign you up for a Personal Design Consultation. Then I will call you and set up a time to come by to design and create a custom Water Feature of your very own.  

Our retail Garden Center and Water Feature Showroom is open Tuesday Thru Thursday from 8 to 5 & Friday from 8am. – 4pm. We are open Saturdays from 8-2! 

Come by and see the possibilities!
