Naturalistic Waterfalls | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio| Jackson, TN

Let’s try this again 😊 Yesterday I had someone tell me that a video I posted had gone bad. So I checked it and they were right, I don’t know what happened, but you can’t see it & I couldn’t fix it by editing… So, I figured I would repost it.

I really love this feature! BIG flow, naturalistic waterfalls and creek flowing into a lake. We tried to make this one look as natural as possible! Big boulders, moss, driftwood and natural stumps that look like they were put there by storms and heavy water flows, etc.. We hope you like them too 😊

Monday Morning Moment of Zen | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee
This is a Waterfall Feature we installed on a natural lake. We were going for a natural, native look so we used native mossy boulders and cedar driftwood and tried to conceal the source of the waterfalls to make it look like a creek up above is spilling over and creating this “Natural” feature. This is Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio’s “Monday Morning Moment of Zen.”

I hope this “Moment of Zen” adds a little something to your day! 😊

Sunday Reflections…

I’m headed home from our annual convention in Chicago. I usually start the day with a sunrise on Sunday mornings, this morning I started the day with a thick, heavy fog. But I know the suns still up there shining 😊 On the road again & counting my blessings.

Have a Great Sunday!

I came out early to capture the sunrise over this Waterfall feature we all built a couple years ago. No sun shine today… Fog is this mornings story. Still a beautiful morning that the lord made! Have a great day!

Beautiful Pondless Waterfall | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

This Pondless Waterfall is located at an Event Center in the Chicagoland area. It was built a little over 2 years ago as a training event for Professional “Certified” Pond Builders, aka: CAC’s (Certified Aquascape Contractors) to learn more about Large scale water features. I am back in town for a yearly conference with my fellow CAC’s, (I am a Master CAC) and just had dinner out here by this feature and wanted to share it with all of you. The plants have all been updated and had time to fill in nicely. It turned out Beautifully! Check it out…

Large Waterfalls are AWESOME! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

We used large mossy boulders and creek stone to construct this ‘Naturalistic’ Water Feature. We were striving to look as “Natural” as possible, so we used specimen quality boulders & cedar driftwood & stumps to help achieve our goal. We didn’t want the stone work to look “Done” or man made in any way & I really think we achieved what we were looking for. Luckily for us, so did our clients 😊 I wanted to share this today & I hope y’all enjoy. I always appreciate a little feedback, so let me know what you think.

 

Thanks! AND… Happy Pondering! 🙂
