Throwback Thursday | Staycations | #Staycation | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

It seems we are staying home more and more now days… Forget dinner out! Forget flying to Disney! Forget that Vacation you’ve been planning since last year! So what do we do for fun? Break out the board games! Fire up the grill & get outside in your own Landscape! Can you say Staycation?! 

This video was my very 1st. Video on YouTube! It’s still so relevant! Do you recognize that guy telling you how his backyard Pond changed his life? YES! That’s Bill Way! I miss his unique take on world events like we are seeing now! But believe me, he knew how to enjoy his leisure time at home 🏡 He loved to #Staycation! 

My Point? Use this down time to be with family at home & try to make it fun. Try to get in the Staycation mindset 😎 I’ve been feeding my Koi, grilling, Netflixing, “Deep Organizing” and listening to a LOT of Jimmy Buffet 🎶 🌺 Don’t think of it as having to… Think of it as getting to 😊❤️

Have a safe and happy Thursday!

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

Monday’s are the start of the weekly grind… That’s why it’s important to be mentally prepared! The sound and energy that a waterfall brings is awesome & really helps to get your mind into that place of ‘Zen’…

Having a Waterfall in your landscape & your life allows you to access it’s power anytime you need to unwind and relax.

A beautiful waterfall can relax your mind & take you to a place of Zen.

This is my offering for your Monday Morning Moment Of Zen 😊

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

Today is the first day of Fall! The autumnal equinox… Equinox of course means equal, today the night and day have an equal split of time. There is something very Zen like about the changing of the seasons.

The weather has dried considerably & some trees are starting to defoliate, like the Birch leaves you see in this short video  You even get a glimpse of a pumpkin 🎃 Embrace the Fall, for it is here…

Time for a good Bonfire 🔥 Are you ready?!

Bonfire Time!

“But when fall comes, kicking summer out on its treacherous a– as it always does one day sometime after the midpoint of September, it stays awhile like an old friend that you have missed. It settles in the way an old friend will settle into your favorite chair and take out his pipe and light it and then fill the afternoon with stories of places he has been and things he has done since last he saw you.”

~ Stephen King

Have a Great day!

Project Spotlight: Naturalistic Pondless Waterfall | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I ❤️ Pondless Waterfalls! I love designing them. I love building them. I Love how Low Maintenance they are! I Love the way they change people’s lives! SO, this morning I wanted to share the latest Pondless Waterfall Feature that we just installed.

This new Pondless Waterfall was just turned on for the 1st. Time right before this picture was taken. It looks so natural.

Most of the Mossy Boulders and stones were sourced from a creek on site, which makes it so much easier to create a very natural feel and look.

Creating a natural look and feel has a LOT to do with the materials you use. Moss and lichen add an instant effect to a feature that says, “I’ve been here a while”…

I hope you like this newly built feature, I know the homeowners do 😊 Have a great day!
