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

Today is the last Wednesday of November! You know what that means right… ‘Last Call for Waterfall’s’!
Yes – it’s Waterfall Wednesday 💥

This beautiful Waterfall was built from natural Tennessee stone that was sourced on site! It has such a natural appearance that many that see it have to be convinced that it’s not a ‘real waterfall’! The homeowners just Love It! They start and end every day with this Water Feature right off their back porch.

So let’s say goodbye to November and get ready for the last month of 2022! Look! – Here’s comes Christmas 🎅🏼

Have a Great #Waterfallwednesday!

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

Another beautiful fall day! Not just any day mind you… It’s Waterfall Wednesday! And this isn’t just your ordinary Waterfall video! This is a video of the Birth of a Waterfall 💥

When you have done this as long as I have (33+ years) you learn to enjoy the moments. Especially the moment when a new feature is plugged 🔌 in for the first time 🤩 A new Waterfall is born! I Love it ❤️
After you have seen this enough you get to wanting to see every new feature as it’s born… You almost become… addicted 😮 So let me start this meeting…

“Hello, my name is Mark Carter and I’m a Plug 🔌 Junkie 😊

Enjoy this day the lord has made!

Happy #waterfallwednesday

Two for Two for Tuesday | Twin, Twin Falls | Carters Nursery Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Good morning! So it’s Tuesday & I was thinking of that “Two for Tuesday” thing that’s so popular… And I thought 💭 2 separate things? Or 2 things together? Huh 🤔 So, here’s my take.
2 beautiful sets of twin Waterfalls that we have designed and built over the years.

We built this one many years ago (decades) It’s at a neighborhood entrance, so this is a good example of a commercial application of a Pondless Waterfall. Twin upper falls flow down into a Pondless Basin. I haven’t touched it in years… It’s held up well!
Here’s #2 for today “two’fer”… This one is much more personalized. Twin waterfalls at the top combine and flow down into a backyard pond. This one is residential and is a beauty!

So what do you think? Two for Two for Tuesday! 💥

Have a great day!
