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!

Project Spotlight: Naturalistic Pondless Waterfall | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I ❤️ Pondless Waterfalls! I love designing them. I love building them. I Love how Low Maintenance they are! I Love the way they change people’s lives! SO, this morning I wanted to share the latest Pondless Waterfall Feature that we just installed.

This new Pondless Waterfall was just turned on for the 1st. Time right before this picture was taken. It looks so natural.

Most of the Mossy Boulders and stones were sourced from a creek on site, which makes it so much easier to create a very natural feel and look.

Creating a natural look and feel has a LOT to do with the materials you use. Moss and lichen add an instant effect to a feature that says, “I’ve been here a while”…

I hope you like this newly built feature, I know the homeowners do 😊 Have a great day!
