The Magic Of Water Gardening with the Helen Schult Garden Club | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio

I recently had the pleasure to meet the Ladies of the Helen Schult Garden Club in Caruthersville, Missouri and to speak for their members on my favorite subject- Water Gardening!
Any time I can share my knowledge of this wonderful hobby and Lifestyle, I’m in 😊

Practicing with my new selfie 🤳 stick…
The host is preparing to introduce me…
I did a video presentation followed by a Q&A and then we did a garden walkover/tour of the hosts backyard paradise!

The meeting took place at a local members beautiful home, that actually has a Water Garden (that we helped her with)… Her family really enjoys the “Outdoor Lifestyle” that I talk about all the time. Her backyard living area is second to none! Custom paved patio space with an outdoor kitchen, bar and sitting/lounging area beneath a custom Pergola. Complete with a Fire 🔥 feature, a Water Feature and gorgeous pottery and plants… Shang-ra-la…

The real star ⭐️ of the show ❤️
The Water Garden sits right beside the patio and provides views from all areas of the backyard. The sound is wonderful! And the Koi are growing and multiplying 😊
The sun was in my eyes when I took this one so please forgive the squint 😎 What a wonderful group of Ladies! Thank you to all the members of the Helen Schult Garden Club! Happy Halloween 🎃 And Happy Holidays from Mark Carter & Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio!

Have a great “Hump Day”!

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

Guess what day it is? Guess… what… Day It Is? Hey, Karen, guess what day it is…? It’s Waterfall Wednesday! WoooHooo! Boom 💥

Here’s a recent Waterfall we designed and built for a client. Now for her, Everyday is Waterfall Day! 🌊

The mossy boulders and native stone help to make this brand new Waterfall look like it’s been here for years. | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I LOVE ❤️ plugging in a new feature and seeing it come to life! The best part is when the homeowner sees it for the first time 😊 Magic 💥 I have seen laughter, WOW’s, hugs 🤗 & tears 😭 of joy. Waterfalls change your life!

Have a great #waterfallwednesday !

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!

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

I was onsite at a recent residential project the other day and the sun was at a pleasing angle so I snapped a few pictures for comparison.  Later in the evening I  looked through some of the images, like I do many days, and I was blown away! It’s really nice to look back at how a garden has matured and developed over time. And you can really tell when someone is involved with their landscape and garden. 

I Love ❤️ Watergardens! This is just a snippet of this feature, but I love this view. And the sound is so relaxing 😌

I Love ❤️ My Job!

And –

I love ❤️  #waterfallwednesday!

We do quite a few Waterfalls on swimming pools. We design and build each one individually. In over 30 years in business I can honestly say, there are no 2 alike. Which to me makes them all Custom works of art… 

Just turned it on. The sound is wonderful & the scale is perfect for the area. Now it’s time for a little planting.

Waterfall Wednesday is one of my favorite days of the week! It’s a day that I get to share our art with all of you. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do 😊 And I hope you enjoy this beautiful #waterfallwednesday!

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

Is it just me, or is 2020 moving at a good clip… It’s already #waterfallwednesday again! Here’s a brand new creation we just turned on 💥

This is a newly created Waterfall. It’s the perfect compliment to this small, intimate courtyard. | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

A private courtyard complete with a Waterfall & Swim Stream, a stone bridge rock, a crushed stone walking area (no grass), Japanese Maples 🍁, blooming perennials, cool lighting and a Fire Pit 🔥 

Sounds like Waterfall Wednesday to me 😊

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

We design and build a LOT of Pondless Waterfalls! This particular one was done for a client who had planned to have one for many years. This video was his idea and his doing which was pretty cool in my opinion! Check out this time lapse of the creation of a Pondless Waterfall! The main view point is of course this lower patio/terrace, BUT the view from the top is nice as well. The upper falls is framed by a glass patio door, so you see from inside the home as well as out. Best of BOTH worlds!  



#Waterfallwednesday is pretty cool! 

Have a great day!

It’s #waterfallwednesday again & I pulled one from the archives for ya’. This picture actually popped up in my Facebook feed yesterday as a “Facebook Memory” from many years ago. I thought it was a great before & after. It really show the beauty of a brand new Pondless Waterfall and how they even get more beautiful as time goes by and the plants mature. 

The difference 1 year can make! A new project just turned on and planted, and then After 1 year of plant growth. Beautiful!

I hope your enjoying life on this beautiful #waterfallwednesday! 

Have a wonderful day 😊

Another #waterfallwednesday is upon us! Check out this beauty I’ve posted for you today. It may look like nature created this beauty,  but we just turned this one on for the first time in this photo. That’s our goal. Water Features that look, sound and feel ‘Natural’…

This waterfall may look like it been here for a long time, but we just turned it on for the first time. That’s the Art of creating Waterfalls

Have a safe & happy Waterfall Wednesday! 

I ❤️ My Job! & I ❤️ My Art!
