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!

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

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

Waterfall Wednesday is here again. Here is a Waterfall from a recent project. This new Pond needed a powerful biological filter to handle a decent sized fish load, ie; LOTS of Koi… So we specified a customized Bog, aka: Constructed Wetland Filter! Large boulders, cobblestone, washed river gravel & booku  Aquatic Plants!! 
It turned out Beautiful! 👇🏻

This beautiful Waterfall flows from an Awesome natural filter, known as a Constructed Wetland Filter. It doesn’t really look like a filter per se’, it looks natural! Biomimicry at its best! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

It’s gonna be a Beautiful Day! Get out and enjoy! 

Have a great, #waterfallwednesday!

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

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 😊

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

Its “Throwback Thursday” again and I have a good one for ya… Here’s our team of CAC’s (Certified Aquascape Contractors) that went down to Epcot and built this totally Custom Water Feature for the International Flower & Garden Festival. We were there to show the world what was possible with Water Features in your own backyard. We did this several years in a row & I think it went a long way in educating the public on what was possible and that there are Trained, Certified Professionals that can help! 

We all worked through the night for several nights to build this “One of a kind” Water Feature in Epcot. Over 1 million people saw this feature.

When you work in Disney parks, you work at night! Midnight to 8am to be exact. It’s a shock to the system, but totally worth it!

Here it is after clean up and landscaping. Quite the showstopper!

The reactions of the people who view Waterfalls are amazing! People laugh, hug, stare, cry & more. Waterfalls are unique and very special…

The International Flower 🌸 & Garden Festival is Awesome! It was an honor to go down and build Water Features with my fellow Pond Builders for so many seasons! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio

This is my offering for #throwbackthursday!

30 years In Business & I’m An Overnight Success | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Please allow me to introduce myself, my name is Mark Carter, this is my 30th. Year in Business & I am finally an overnight success!

Thank you ALL for your support over the last 30 years!

I Love ❤️ My Job! Did I mention that? I love it so much apparently that 30 years have flown right by… When I actually stop and pay attention for a minute, it surprises even me 😊

I’ve been waiting for 30 years! Success is an elusive thing…

I had a nice conversation with a lady yesterday, we had never met, but hit it right off, as gardeners many times do. She said she had driven past my Nursery for the last 30 years & NEVER knew I was back here… Then she told me she was “blown away” by the place! She talked about the Waterfalls & Koi and all the plants and trees. She told me this place was a “Hidden Gem” 😊 Thank You! ❤️ And yes,’I hear that kind of thing often! We sit back off the road in a little valley of sorts, a “Hollow” or “Holler” as my grandma called it 😊 The #1 thing that I get told is that we are “Jackson’s Best Kept Secret”! Personally, I think that’s pretty cool 😎

All these years I have been Jackson’s Best Kept Secret… Well, now the secrets out! The narrative has changed… I’m coining a new one myself! “Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio, 30 years in business & finally, an Overnight Success”!

 

Thanks to all of YOU!
