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

I don’t know about y’all, but it felt like a straight up Spring weekend! Complete with a bluebird sky and even a few flying bugs 🐜! So, of course I ended up outside messing around the gardens & ponds 😊 I ❤️ It! I took this short video to share this morning, hopefully to extend this feeling of early Spring!

The Koi are out moving nicely too. I think they heard what Punxsutawney Phil had to say about Spring as well 😊 I’m ready!

 

Have a Great day!

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!

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!
