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

It’s hard to beat the sounds of the river. Birds, boats, the lapping of the waves coming in… Heaven! I can close my eyes, relax & go to sleep in no time 😊

I hope you found some Zen in this video… Have a great day!

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

I was out on a clients property the other day & he asked if I would like to see the Creek… Yes was the answer of course 😊 Even on a Hot August day the water is nice and cool 😎 Being down there by the creek was so peaceful and ‘Zen like’ … The sound of the water with the frogs & birds & cicadas is almost Hypnotic.

This is privately owned property & is the homeowners personal respite from the world. We are going to build them a custom Water Feature up by their house so they can enjoy & relax to the sound of water all the time 😊

Beautiful Creek

I hope this little video brings a little ‘Zen’ into your day. When I want to relax, I just close my eyes and listen to the waterfalls & clear my mind. Within a few minutes I relax, my heart rate slows, my blood pressure drops & I literally feel better. Try it…

I just Love these eroded stones. Time and running water can erode and split most anything, including solid stone! We try to use these old pieces in our work to give a feature a natural look and feel. Many times it’s a subtle point of interest that doesn’t get noticed until much later. Then one day, months or even years down the road I get a call from a client saying they just love their Water Feature & then they tell me about a special little something they discovered in the stream or Waterfalls 💦 That is always a good day! 😊

Unique stones can give a water feature a naturalistic feel.

I hope this brings a little Zen to your day 😊

Respectably Lazy…

Ok, I’ll admit it, I enjoy a good nap! Especially on a HOT Summer afternoon 😎 My wife asked me – What is the perfect nap 😴? Well, if I had to describe it… The perfect nap… “A Shady spot, laying in a nice hammock with the sound of a waterfall in the background and a light breeze blowing! Shang-ra-la!

Enjoying a good nap on a day off doesn’t make you lazy! I’d like to think it shows that you know how to truly enjoy the finer things! The little things that make life good 😊 Stop and smell those roses 🌹 And then, string up your Hammock & take a ‘Respectable nap’! You deserve it.

Have a great weekend!

We always strive to make Water Features look as natural as possible. Using native stone and  mossy accent wood really helps too. This feature was just turned on for the first time 5 minutes before I took this video… Some of the stone was sourced from a local creek as well as this old cedar stump.

I hope this brings a little Zen to your day!

To me, nothing is more southing and hypnotic than the sounds of the frogs and crickets and Waterfalls at night. It’s like having the Tennessee River in my backyard 😊

I hope these gentle sounds bring you to a place of Zen.

 

Have a great Monday!

Good morning 😊 This is one of my oldest Waterfalls at Carters Nursery. The moss and old driftwood stump really naturalize this Waterfall, and the sound will almost hypnotize you if you sit down and listen. It’s all about the Zen like atmosphere that it helps to create. I hope it adds a bit o’ Zen to your day…

Happy Pondering 🤔
