I thought I would share this beautIful stream and waterfall that we recently built. Flowing water and soothing sounds on a Monday are always a welcome thing…

Have a great week!

We are always trying to move forward in our unique creation/building process… This is a quick glimpse of a very special project that we are working on. The last parts are always the slowest and most tedious… The Devil is indeed in the details! Heres a quick walk through of this backyard Water Feature…

Now, all we lack is ”finishing up” 😊
Its gonna be a nice one when its all said and done!

Enjoy your #waterfallwednesday!

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

Can you believe how fast this Summer is passing by… It’s already Waterfall Wednesday!
Todays Waterfall goes back a ways… We first built this Waterfall around 27 years ago 🤩

Recently we did a little “Facelift Work” on it and we all think it turned out great 👍🏻

They still have most of the original Koi that we put in the pond all those years ago 🤩 And boy have they grown!

Hey, I remember you 😊
Got something to eat for an old friend? ❤️

#Waterfallwednesday is always a great day! Especially when you looking back at something you did so long ago 😊

Have a Great Day!

PS: I can almost see the weekend from here…

Tranquil Tuesday | Moment of Zen | Carter’s Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Peaceful, Tranquil, Focused, Present… That’s where a beautiful Waterfall takes me 😊 To a place of Zen. This is a brand new creation in a wonderful client’s backyard. Do you think their days and nights are fixing to get a whole lot better? I do…

Have a very “Tranquil Tuesday”!

Monday Morning Moment Of Zen | Carter’s Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Just a simple, flowing creek… listen for a moment and your hooked. I went out yesterday and walked some local creeks and river banks. All my designs are influenced by the streams and creeks of Western Tennessee where I grew up, and they are still what I seek out to recharge my spirit and my energy. Just a simple, flowing creek is all it takes for me 😊

There’s nothing more Zen like than that right there. Have a great week!

Don’t blink 👁 … It’s Monday once again! “Got anymore of that Weekend”??? The older I get, the more I become ‘pro 3 day weekend’ 😊 Thank goodness for my Waterfalls! This time of year, as everything is waking up, coming out and the weather is getting warmer, I’m out by my Ponds and Waterfalls more and more. My Waterfalls and Koi make mornings and evenings so much more relaxing and bearable. Especially on a busy Monday morning…

Enjoy this Little ‘Moment of Zen’…

Let’s all have a wonderful Monday morning!

Waterfall Wednesday | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Germantown, TN

Yes, it’s already #waterfallwednesday again… And I wanted to share this beautiful little waterfall. Is it a natural Waterfall? Or, did I design and build it? In other words… “Is it live or is it Memorex”?

Drum 🥁 Roll… We actually designed and built this one several years ago in a shady backyard in Germantown Tennessee. Boom 💥

That is why it’s so important to use specimen quality stone! Native Aquatic Plants are a big part as well! And don’t leave out drift wood, mossy stumps and the like, they make it so much more ‘Naturally Beautiful’!

Enjoy your day! #waterfallwednesday!

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

Good Monday Morning! And “Merry Christmas”! 🎄🎅🏻 Only a few days left before the big day and tensions are running high… Here’s a little something that always helps to lower stress and tension for me – A Waterfall!

The mossy stone, the natural driftwood and oh that sound… All I have to do is sit down with my coffee and sip while I listen to the waterfalls splash and gurgle and all that tension just melts away. It’s the best Sound Therapy that I know of! Can you say Zen…

Have a wonderful day! And a very Merry Christmas 🎄

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

Blink of the eye 👁 and it’s #waterfallwednesday again…

This weeks featured Waterfall is a newly built Pondless Waterfall Feature. This Waterfall sits on a hill flowing down toward the back patio. 🔥 It’s always nice to have a hill to work with!

We had a nice slope to work with on this project. When you look out the back windows from inside the home, this is you focal point! It’s inviting you to come out and listen and watch the birds bathe and drink. Paradise Found!

We put a variable speed pump on this feature so it could be turned up or down at will. Check out this little video below, this is at the lowest setting 👇🏻

Waterfall Wednesday is always a special day! Today is even more meaningful, because tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day 🦃 This new waterfall will be the hit and the conversation piece of the celebration 😊

Have a great #Waterfallwednesday! And –

Happy Thanksgiving!

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!
