Pondless Waterfall ‘The Movie’ | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

This is a cool ‘Time Lapse’ video of a Pondless Waterfall Installation from a few years back. The job actually took the entire crew a 10 hour day to complete. This video condenses it down to two minutes.

I ❤️ Waterfalls!

 

Happy Pondering 🤔

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

I had an enjoyable,in-depth conversation yesterday about Waterfalls & Design. I’m in the final design phase of a cool project with multiple Waterfeatures involved & as we went over the plans and sketchs on site we started getting in depth on how the different waterfalls would crash & turn & flow, etc… My client is really happy with the plans and ideas that we laid out and he gave the thumbs up to begin. Before we ever began his initial design he came by my office and looked at some of my work. We looked at many project photos & he and his wife even attended one of our Pond Tours. Yesterday he told me that I was a “Waterfall Master”…


They say it takes anywhere from 6-10 years to get great at something, depending on how often and how much you do it. And that it takes 10,000 + hours to master something, but I think it varies from person to person and depends on the skill and other factors.

Today is Wednesday ie; Hump Day – ie; Waterfall Wednesday 😊

I’ve collected quite a few pictures on my Pinterest page of Waterfalls, Water Gardens, Pondless Waterfalls, Ponds, etc. that we have designed and built over the last few decades – check some of em out today. A waterfall is a magical thing!

PS: I designed & my crew & I built all the features you see on my Pinterest pg. – https://www.pinterest.com/cartersnursery/

Thanks!

Have a great Waterfall Wednesday!

Naturalistic Waterfalls | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio| Jackson, TN

Let’s try this again 😊 Yesterday I had someone tell me that a video I posted had gone bad. So I checked it and they were right, I don’t know what happened, but you can’t see it & I couldn’t fix it by editing… So, I figured I would repost it.

I really love this feature! BIG flow, naturalistic waterfalls and creek flowing into a lake. We tried to make this one look as natural as possible! Big boulders, moss, driftwood and natural stumps that look like they were put there by storms and heavy water flows, etc.. We hope you like them too 😊

Monday Morning Moment of Zen | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee
This is a Waterfall Feature we installed on a natural lake. We were going for a natural, native look so we used native mossy boulders and cedar driftwood and tried to conceal the source of the waterfalls to make it look like a creek up above is spilling over and creating this “Natural” feature. This is Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio’s “Monday Morning Moment of Zen.”

I hope this “Moment of Zen” adds a little something to your day! 😊

This waterfall sounds so soothing. We sat and listened for a little while the other night during the “Moonlight Pond Tour” and decided it would make the perfect “Moment of Zen”. I hope it brings a little Zen to your day 😊

Before & After | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tn.

Well, the Waterfall re-build last Saturday went well. We had over 20 interested participants who braved the 108 degree Sun to come out to learn more about “How To” build a Waterfall. We talked design principals & styles. we also talked about SOUND! We compared the sound of several different waterfalls around the place and tried to weave this rebuild into something special…

Before and after of the Waterfall we rebuilt at the Waterfall class Saturday. We had lots of fun! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Here’s a short video of the Waterfalls after the rebuild. You can hear the difference too.

 

Happy Pondering!
