Carter's Water Garden


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

Yesterday evening was so nice! A cool northerly breeze pushed all that humidity out and as the Landscape Lighting was kicking on the entire garden had such a ’Zen’ feeling… It was so surreal… I took this short video to share with you this morning.

Enjoy this day! And enjoy this week as well, it ends with a long weekend! Independence Day here we come! 💥🇺🇸💥

I love to start Mondays with a flowing Waterfall if I can. There is nothing more relaxing and grounding than the sound and feeling of flowing water…

Nothing like it. ❤️ This Waterfall was just built and turned on about 10 days ago! The homeowners just LOVE it! I do too…

Have a great Monday!

I was out in the Garden late last evening. When it gets warm I have a hard time making myself go inside 😊 I captured this little video of a Waterfall for this mornings Moment of Zen… Hope you like it.

There is something about a Waterfall… It will grab your attention and all of a sudden a wave of relaxation washes over you and you are calm, cool and collected… I hope this little snippet will help you relax a bit too 😊

Have a great Monday!

Monday Afternoon Moment of Zen | Carters Nursery Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Good afternoon! 🌞 Wow, what a beautiful day 🌼 Spring has Sprung and I am running full speed 🏎 There is no better way for me to slow down and catch my breath than to sit down by my Waterfall with a cup of coffee ☕️ Within minutes I feel like a different man… Heres a short video I made last night of my Waterfall after dark. The Landscape Lighting, along with the Moon made the first day of Spring a beautiful one…

Spring is HERE! Slow down, listen to the Waterfalls! Take the time and smell a few roses 🌹too 😊

Monday Morning Fun | Meet Marty, The Laughing Kookaburra | Carters Nursery Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

I am an animal lover! That love of animals is where I got the motivation to start our Annual Parade of Ponds to raise money for our local Humane Society. Earlier this year I found myself in South Florida to earn CEU’s (continuing education units) for my company’s Professional Pond Certification (CAC). The class was at a really cool place! Blakes exotic animal farm! This place has so many different animals! Lizards, fish, otters, turtles, birds and more! We spent 3 days there building some really cool Water Features! But todays video is about a really cool bird I met there… His name is Marty, he is a Laughing kookaburra and he is from Australia. Check him out as Blake tells you a little bit about him and shows you HOW he got his name 😊

We always have fun designing and building Water Features, but having animals like Marty around is just Awesome! We have native Kingfishers all over Tennessee, but they are small compared to this guy.

Have a great ’Fun’ Monday!

Heres a beautiful semi formal Water Garden I had the pleasure of touring while down in Southern Florida recently. It was warm and in bloom and made me dream of Spring…

Spring is coming! Soon our water lilies will be blooming and our koi will be eating from our hands and all will be right in the world of the Water Garden ❤️ Until then, enjoy the season as it unfolds…

Have a great week!

Fall is in full splendor 🍂 We have peaked in our Fall color and soon the wind will sweep it all away 🌬 I wanted to share my little view of Autumn Beauty with you this morning. The colorful foliage with the crashing Waterfalls provides the perfect place of Zen on a crisp Monday morning…

Get out today and take a walk or a ride around the neighborhood and enjoy the Fall color while its still here… It will be gone in the blink of an eye 👁

Have a great day!

Monday Morning Moment of Zen

This was a place of Zen for me for many many years… Sitting or laying in the shade of this old Hickory tree. It was a host to mistletoe and a home for many squirrels 🐿 including a large number of flying squirrels… And in the Fall the golden color was so beautiful…

I took this picture laying down under this old tree. I was told by many that this was the tallest Hickory tree they had ever seen… It was over 200 years old.

This 200+ year old tree is gone now 😢 But I still remember it… And I can still find a quiet peaceful place of Zen sitting under a nice tree or in the woods. Try it today and enjoy some Fall beauty ❤️
