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

I went outside this morning to a wonderful feeling! Brisk, Fall, Air! I took a few deep breaths and let me tell you… It even smells like a fresh, Fall day!

This “Naturalistic Stream and Waterfalls” that we recently completed, gives you a nice feeling too! A feeling of Zen…

All native Tennessee stone was used in the construction of this Water Feature.

This is an ‘across the pond shot’ of the entire Waterfall. I’ll try to get a good video from this angle to share soon. | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio

I hope this helps to bring a little ‘Zen’ to your Monday!

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

Good morning! ☀️ Well, it’s October and again, it’s #waterfallwednesday! I’m pulling an old photo out of the archives for today’s offering😊 This beautiful Water Garden has multiple waterfalls, a stream, a boulder retaining wall behind it and, The Bird Girl…

I call this picture ‘bird girl falls’. The lady of the house Loves container gardening, as you see😊 It’s impossible to get the whole area in a photo, but believe me, every view is just as beautiful! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Waterfall Wednesday is always a great day! Lots of beautiful Waterfalls & we are halfway through the workweek 💥

Have a great Waterfall Wednesday!

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

This is a very special Waterfall that was just turned on for the 1st time for a test run. You will see more of this one as a finished product soon. We designed this one to take advantage of a natural spring fed pool and stone formation. It really looks and feels “Natural”,  because much of it is 😊 I hope you get the same feeling of Zen that I do from this short video… You even hear the guys laughing in the background at the success of this beautiful Waterfall!

Here’s a picture looking across the Pond of this beautiful feature…

The sound and feeling of this Waterfall is pure Zen ❤️

Another week has begun! Enjoy!

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

Another #Waterfallwednesday is upon us 😊 I ❤️ Waterfalls! Here are two (2) brand new Waterfalls that were just set in motion. These are on the same feature, and it’s a Very special Water Garden! I will show this whole project in a future Blog, once it’s complete… It’s still a “work in progress”.

I slowed the shutter speed down a little on this picture to really show the smooth, flowing feel of this waterfall. I think it turned out to have a very natural look and feel. | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

This Waterfall & Stream enter a different part of the pond & create a very natural look and feel. The driftwood adds a nice touch too. | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

 

I LOVE seeing a new Water Garden come to life! There’s nothing like it 😊

I hope y’all enjoy my offerings for #WaterfallWednesday!

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

I thought I would post this for my contribution to #waterfallwednesday

Shane (my construction supervisor), Jacob (my son) & I went down and spent an entire week working with Gulf Coast Aquascapes & a team of fellow Certified Aquascape Contractors to build this Awesome Waterfall Feature at the New Gulf Coast Zoo! This will be the Spider Monkey Island exhibit.

The good news is, the Little Zoo That Could will be reopening soon! It will now be known as the ‘Little Zoo That Grew”! Click on the link below for more info…

I hope everyone has a Great “Waterfall Wednesday”!

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

The Pond is Beautiful! The water is SO clear & the plants look so nice 😊 It’s #WaterfallWednesday folks! The Waterfall in this picture isn’t in the forefront as you see… I wanted the Waterfall to be in the background  so this beautiful Lotus could shine 🌞 You also see a colorful Koi swimming in the pond back there too… All integral parts that make a “Water Garden” the sum total!

A beautiful Water Garden is achieved by having all the integral parts working together. Stone, gravel,
Aquatic plants, fish, a waterfall, etc. | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I hope everyone is having a Great “Waterfall Wednesday”!

 

PS: I hope this will work as your Hump Day Koi Fix too 😎
