Carter's Water Garden


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

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 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!

I always look forward to sharing a waterfall video with everyone on Monday, and today is no different! This beautiful Pondless Waterfall was on Saturday Nights Moonlight Pond Tour and I just had to share this one with you…

There is just something about a Waterfall that grabs you… Not just the movement, the sound! The splash, the Burble… And at night, the lighting! The accent lighting puts such a focus on the beauty of the flowing, splashing, burbling water… It’s Magical!

If you missed Saturday nights event and wish you hadn’t, stay tuned in. Something else is in the works thats gonna be Awesome!

Have a great week!

Monday’s Moment of Zen | Water Garden Love ❤️

I love my Pond! And I love interacting with it! The fish, the frogs, dragonflies, plants, etc.. All of it! Heck, I even love tending to my Water Garden 😊 This time of the season, I usually cut things back a bit, fertilize my Waterlilies and Lotus plants and do a good physical removal of excess string algae in and around the Waterfalls. Believe it or not, I get great joy from it… And when I sit down and look at the freshness of the newly cleaned, ‘Mid season Pond’ I get that feeling of satisfaction… A very Zen feeling. Check out my little video of me cleaning the excess string algae off the Waterfall. Maybe you will see what I mean 😊

Have a great day!

Good Morning! 🌞 The weekend is behind us and new challenges are on the horizon… If you are focused and mentally prepared, you can meet any challenge head on. My Waterfalls and Koi help me find that place of focus, that place of Zen. Check out the short clip of my Waterfall and fish from last night 👇🏻

The waterfall sounds, the frogs 🐸 and the Koi make for quite the show. It’s a show I watch everyday 😊 I hope this clip shows you what I’m talking about.
Have a blessed Monday!

Shuck them sheets and hit the streets, it’s Monday morning! Why does the weekend go by so fast? Maybe because we look forward to it? What if we looked forward to Monday 😊

Here’s a quick video (literally)… A time lapse of yesterday’s sunset. I filmed it for several minutes, but it only takes seconds to watch the sun disappear… There’s a little bit of Zen in that setting sun ⛅️

Enjoy your day!

Why is Monday morning different than any other morning of the week? You can name many things I’m sure, I know I can… But it really boils down to starting the grind again… Finding motivation and inspiration help. If your mentally prepared, it’s just another beautiful day ⛅️ Get up a little early, and find that mental clarity, that place of Zen 🙏🏻

Thanks to my Waterfalls, I have a ‘Place of Zen’ to return to. A Waterfall will help you clear your mind, slow your heart rate and aid in mental focus. Enjoy your day 🌞

It’s Monday morning and a new week awaits! I always love getting out early and feeding my Koi. Of course, I also love getting out late and doing the same 😊 Here’s a short video from last nights feeding. I thought it would be a nice Moment of Zen for today…

Monday’s are sometimes trying, a moment of zen goes a long way!

Have a great Day!

Yesterday was so nice. I was outside most of the day, watched the sunset and then made this short little video of my Pond and Waterfall.

Spring is finally here 😊 And I love it! I hope this little clip somehow conveys the feeling of Zen that I get sitting out by my Pond.

Have a Great week!
