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! 😊

This beautiful Pondless Waterfall has 2 streams converging into a common area at the bottom. The sound is wonderful! Take a look and maybe it will add a little Zen 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!

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

I had a great day exploring the Tennessee Aquarium last week. The displays are beautifully created! Great attention to detail is required to build a Feature that looks and feels Natural… The very top of the Aquarium is where the “natural” flow of water originates from streams & springs and represents a natural biome where native critters live. This area is home to the otters as well as some beautiful Waterfalls and streams. I hope this Stream and Waterfall lend a little Zen to your day!  

Make Monday a FUN Day!
