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

I was onsite at a recent residential project the other day and the sun was at a pleasing angle so I snapped a few pictures for comparison.  Later in the evening I  looked through some of the images, like I do many days, and I was blown away! It’s really nice to look back at how a garden has matured and developed over time. And you can really tell when someone is involved with their landscape and garden. 

I Love ❤️ Watergardens! This is just a snippet of this feature, but I love this view. And the sound is so relaxing 😌

I Love ❤️ My Job!

And –

I love ❤️  #waterfallwednesday!

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

Pond TALE Tuesday… | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I LOVE designing and building Custom Water Features! Many of my designs start with a story… Or a ‘Tale’ if you will. Like this one Today for instance… 

The Tale is, on my beautiful brides and my Honeymoon, we drove to the Mountains of East Tennessee. We had a big old time too! ❤️ One day in particular, we decided to get out and ride around and see where the road would lead us. Long story short, we took a picnic 🧺 lunch and headed down a trail into the woods … We ended up stopping by a beautiful stone creek with Several little Waterfalls and a perfect spot to sit down and eat. My wife Jo Was so struck by the spot that I sketched the little stream and waterfalls out on a napkin and promised to build her a spot “just like it” at home when we got back 😊

This is what I came up with based on my sketch and memory from that little spot in the woods outside Gatlinburg. Complete with Natural Tennessee Stone, driftwood and washed out stumps.

I have added a stone patio, a fire 🔥 pit, a grilling area and more, but the original Tale lives on 😊 We just celebrated our 27th Anniversary. This little Waterfall and Pond has brought us much joy ❤️ Heck, I’m still writing stories about it all these years later. 

Here’s a picture of the Waterfalls and Pond from opposing angles.



So there’s a sappy Tuesday Tale about Peace ✌🏻 Love ❤️ & Waterfalls 😊 Have a great day!

Monday Morning Moment Of Zen…

I LOVE Tennessee! I especially love the Natural Springs, Creeks, Waterfalls and Rivers ❤️ In some areas of the state a beautiful stream, strewn with little waterfalls flows around and through every holler. I stopped by just such a stream the other day and walked down to the bank and took this short video to share this morning. It is such a relaxing sound and the water is as warm as a bath right now. So, Zen… 



Enjoy a wonderful ‘Zen Filled’ Monday!

Last Monday Morning Moment Of Zen Of 2019 | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Well this is the last Monday morning of the year. I have been debating what to post for the Moment of Zen. After much thought, I decided to post a “Top 3” of 2019. This isn’t scientific, just 3 nice, short videos of peaceful, Zen inspiring Waterfalls for ya’.

I hope this brings a little Zen into your day!

Who wouldn’t enjoy a ‘Moment of Zen’ here by this pond 😊

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

This Pondless Waterfall Feature was just turned on for the first time before making this short video. This Pondless Waterfall replaced an old, leaky, high maintenance pond.

I Love the sound and the feeling this new Water Feature provides. It gives this private back patio a true feeling of ‘Zen’.

Now check out the video 👇🏻

The new owners Love it! It’s low maintenance, looks and sounds great & has a lighting package, so it’s beautiful 24/7! Win-Win for all!

This is my entry for your Monday Morning Moment of Zen! Have a Great day!

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

I went outside this morning to a wonderful feeling! Brisk, Fall, Air! I took a few deep breaths and let me tell you… It even smells like a fresh, Fall day!

This “Naturalistic Stream and Waterfalls” that we recently completed, gives you a nice feeling too! A feeling of Zen…

All native Tennessee stone was used in the construction of this Water Feature.

This is an ‘across the pond shot’ of the entire Waterfall. I’ll try to get a good video from this angle to share soon. | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio

I hope this helps to bring a little ‘Zen’ to your Monday!

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

Good morning! ☀️ Well, it’s October and again, it’s #waterfallwednesday! I’m pulling an old photo out of the archives for today’s offering😊 This beautiful Water Garden has multiple waterfalls, a stream, a boulder retaining wall behind it and, The Bird Girl…

I call this picture ‘bird girl falls’. The lady of the house Loves container gardening, as you see😊 It’s impossible to get the whole area in a photo, but believe me, every view is just as beautiful! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Waterfall Wednesday is always a great day! Lots of beautiful Waterfalls & we are halfway through the workweek 💥

Have a great Waterfall Wednesday!

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

This is a very special Waterfall that was just turned on for the 1st time for a test run. You will see more of this one as a finished product soon. We designed this one to take advantage of a natural spring fed pool and stone formation. It really looks and feels “Natural”,  because much of it is 😊 I hope you get the same feeling of Zen that I do from this short video… You even hear the guys laughing in the background at the success of this beautiful Waterfall!

Here’s a picture looking across the Pond of this beautiful feature…

The sound and feeling of this Waterfall is pure Zen ❤️

Another week has begun! Enjoy!
