Carter's Water Garden


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

Good Morning! It’s time to shuck them sheets and hit them streets! It’s Waterfall Wednesday!

I though I would share this little beauty with y’all today. This Waterfall is situated right beside the back patio and provides a wonderful sound and view from anywhere in the back yard! PS: The homeowner can also hear the sound through their bedroom window… Can you say Paradise 😊

We are always trying to create the most beautiful waterfall possible. Using native mossy boulders, aquatic plants and drift wood help give the appearance of age and really add some instant Magic 💥

It’s “Hump Day” folks! Which in my world means it’s #Waterfallwednesday 🌊

Hold on as we roll downhill to the weekend!

Don’t blink, it’s #Waterfallwednesday again 😊 We are into our second day of Fall & it feels so good! I wanted to share this naturalistic Waterfall with you today. 
Nestled in the corner of a private backyard garden with views from inside and out. The pond comes right up to the edge of the overhanging deck and really creates some magic 💥

We built this beauty several years back. It has matured nicely. The moss has spread everywhere. I Love ❤️ Waterfalls! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Martin, TN

I love visiting features that we installed years earlier. Seeing how the plants have matured and how the moss has spread over the rocks always excites me 😊

Waterfalls are my business, and business is good! 

Enjoy your day! It’s all downhill to the weekend from here…

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

Another weekend has come and gone, too fast… Enter Monday Morning! To have a clear, focused mind – Try listening to the sound of this waterfall and stream for a moment. 



My waterfall serves many purposes.

It’s easy to clear your mind and get to a state of Zen… All you need is a quiet spot by a waterfall…


It aerates my Pond. It helps produce fresh clean water for my pets and other wildlife. It provides southing sounds and lowers my heart rate as soon as I sit down beside it ❤️ 
Enjoy this Moment of Zen. 

Fall is Here!

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

Being able to look out your window and see a flowing Waterfall, and then to walk out anytime you want and sit beside the stream and hear the sound and feel the positive energy… It’s an Awesome thing indeed! This Pondless Waterfall is such a feature and this is the perfect Zen Backyard. It is the Nucleus of the entire property. 

The Water Feature is the Nucleus of the entire Backyard world…

Throwback Thursday | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Sometimes my blog writes itself 😊 Here’s a great #throwbackthursday picture for ya’! 

This picture was taken right after we finished the initial installation around 10 years ago.


We built this Pondless Waterfall about 10 years ago. We went back to clean up and service it recently and installed a brand new Foot Bridge! 

The new bridge is built from treated lumber and has several coats of paint. It should be around for the long haul! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio

The original bridge was cedar and lasted a good while. This new bridge is built from treated lumber and should last much longer than 10 years 🤞🏻

Dog days are pleasant when you have a place to cool off 😊
PS: Dogs LOVE Waterfalls!


Throwback Thursday is a special day indeed 😊

Y’all have a wonderful day!

Congratulations For 65 Years Of Gardening Love 💐❤️

I had the honor to speak to a wonderful Garden Club earlier this week. I prepared a Keynote Presentation on “Low Maintenance, Custom Water Features” for the ladies, complete with handouts, prop’s & a power point projection show… As much as they enjoyed learning more about Water Features, I think I got an even bigger treat! This was their 65th Anniversary as a Garden Club & it was the hosts Birthday! Happy Birthday DD 💥 We all had Lots of FUN!

What a great group of ladies! So much positive energy & love for the Garden! Congratulations to the Evergreen Garden Club for 65 years of Gardening! This is just the beginning!

The Food was Awesome!

Valentines was part of the theme, and the food was plentiful.

Many of the members of the club are friends and/or clients, so I felt right at home. It’s always nice to speak to an engaged audience, and all the members LOVE the hobby of Gardening!

 

I tried to get everyone in the shot, but there were so many in attendance I still missed a few ❤️ What a great morning speaking for the Evergreen Garden Club on their 65th. Anniversary! Here’s to Many More! 💥

“I have found, through years of practice, that people garden in order to make something grow; to interact with nature; to share, to find sanctuary, to heal, to honor the earth, to leave a mark. Through gardening, we feel whole as we make our personal work of art upon our land.”

   ~ Julie Moir Messervy

Thanks again to the wonderful Ladies of the Evergreen Garden Club! Have a Great Day! Spring is Coming! 💐
