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

Some people call it Hump Day… I call it #waterfallwednesday (In the voice of Carl)😂

Yes, we again find ourselves at the midpoint of another week, and as they say “It’s all downhill from here”… Maybe that’s why Wednesdays and Waterfalls work so well together? They both flow downward to an end 😊

This is Luna standing by one of our Waterfalls. She is a beautiful calico (one of our “Nursery Rescues”) and loves to be right there with you when your out around the nursery.

You have probably seen this kitty cat 🐈 before and this Waterfall as well, but, not as much as I have 😊 And I still just love both of em’❤️
So enjoy your Wednesday! It’s all downhill from here… #waterfallwednesday

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!

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

Good morning! Light snow is falling, its 7 degrees and most importantly, its Waterfall Wednesday! I think I will share a seasonal view of my Waterfall today!

I post pictures from every season with my Waterfall and stream as the subject, and each season brings something special and different. It’s too bad to drive on the roads right now, so I hope #Waterfallwednesday bring us all a little joy.

Stay warm!

Waterfall Wednesday, Calico Style 🐈

Get up and enjoy the sunshine ☀️ It’s #waterfallwednesday!

Meet Luna, one of our ‘Staff Nursery Cats’… She LOVES the ponds! She climbed up in this Japanese Maple to better survey the area this morning😊

I went down to get a frosty 🥶 picture for my Waterfall Wednesday post, and Luna was with me step for step. I think she likes to be the subject in every photo … Cats 🙄

It’s not real Icy this morning, just a little bit. But we are past Groundhog Day and Spring is Coming!

I hope you enjoy your Waterfall Wednesday! A little frost and ice just adds to the seasonal beauty that a Waterfall brings to your life 😊

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

2021 is moving right along and here it is, already #waterfallwednesday! I thought I would share one of my personal Waterfalls today…. I have a bunch, a collection, an… obsession 😊 Yes, I have a problem… I guess I should introduce myself.
Hello, my name is Mark Carter & I am a Waterfallaholic 😇

This is one of my favorite Waterfalls. It’s so simple… Moss covered and flowing out from under a big old Cedar Tree Stump. It’s the headwaters to a long flowing stream that feeds a beautiful Koi Pond. Whew 😅 I’m glad I got that off my chest. And I hope y’all enjoy Waterfalls as well! But be careful, they are addictive… Enjoy with moderation 😎

Have a great evening!

PS: Do you know the difference between a Waterfall ‘Enthusiast’ and a “Waterfallaholic”???
Answer : Waterfallaholics go to meetings…

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

I love beautiful sunny days! Even cold ones like today. It’s January, but the days are getting longer… Spring is slowly getting closer by the day! If you get out in the garden and look 👀 you will see all kinds of emerging plants, buds swelling, aquatic plants showing growth on the edges of streams and in the pond. It sure makes me feel good! Today is the 1st Waterfall Wednesday of 2021! So I thought I would share a simple picture of what’s coming in the not to distant future…

I’m looking forward to the coming Spring! It won’t be long now! Spring is Coming!

A simple Waterfall and stream make such a wonderful sound! It feeds much more than the aquatic plants and birds that come to drink and bathe 😊

Have a great #waterfallwednesday! From here, it’s all downhill to the weekend!

The Last Waterfall Wednesday Of 2020 | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

New Year’s Day is only 2 days away… It’s almost time to say bye bye 👋🏻 to 2020! Ive been trying to find a picture of the perfect Waterfall to post for the last #waterfallwednesday of the year.

I couldn’t decide on just 1 picture… So, I made a collage of several images of beautiful Water Features. I hope everyone is ready to move into a new year! And, I hope that 2021 will be the best year ever!

Waterfalls are my business and my passion! So trying to pick one that’s my “favorite” is impossible. They are all so beautiful and unique. So I cheated 😊 and made a collage of many beautiful images…

Here’s to a New Year! And, here’s to Beautiful Waterfalls! 💥

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

I just LOVE #waterfallwednesday! It’s the day of the week that I try to share a beautiful Waterfall that we have designed and built at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio. Many are Waterfalls that we designed and created from scratch. And others are Waterfalls that we rehabbed and/or completely tore out and rebuilt.

Check out this new Waterfall. We completely tore out the old feature and reimagined/redesigned what it could be. | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

A good part of our business is the rehabilitation of and/or the complete rebuilding of existing Water Features. So many people want and need their Water features to be more Functional, Lower Maintenance and… More aesthetically pleasing 😊 This project covered all those bases.

A low maintenance Pondless Waterfall was just what the Dr. ordered. Before, they were never happy with the looks of the waterfall and they had to add water daily to keep from burning the pump out. Plus, all their fish died…

A beautiful, low maintenance Waterfall will change your life! Enjoy Waterfall Wednesday!

Merry Christmas 🎄

What day is it you ask… Waterfall Wednesday of course! Its December and everyone here at Carters Nursery is in the Christmas spirit!

Sprite, our Nursery Elf, wants to tell you that even though 2020 has been CRAZY! Christmas is ON! Santa and all the elves are busy getting ready, so take heart! Christmas IS coming!

We were lucky to have an Elf move in! He has really helped us get ready for Christmas! Come by and see us and say, HI!

Sprite has 2 rules – #1 Since he is an aquatic elf and lives in or near water, he says “Always spend time by your Waterfall”! and #2 ALWAYS keep the spirit of Christmas 🎄 in your heart! ❤️

From the whole team at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio – Have a wonderful Waterfall Wednesday! and, Merry Christmas! 🎄🎅🏻❤️

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!
