Waterfall Wednesday | Carter’s Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I posted about this Water Feature when it was newly built several years ago. This Large Pondless Waterfall was built by our CAC group (Certified Aquascape Contractors) at our annual Training Event in Illinois (Carter’s Nursery, Pond & Patio are Master CAC’s). This morning my son and I had breakfast by this Water Feature & I took this picture from my seat 😊 My contribution to #waterfallwednesday !

The Landscape has really filled in nicely. This feature looks and feels so Natural! | Carter’s Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Training and keeping up with new technology and techniques is all important if your to stay at the top of the game! That’s why we work at constant improvement! This year I took a very important person to this wonderful training event so he could grow and get better too.

My son Jacob is working in the business now! He grew up in and around the nursery & our family business, and is learning more and more every day 😊

Even Greater things are yet to come 🙏🏻

 

Have a Great Day! More updates coming soon…

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!

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!

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”!

Social Networking Tuesday | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tn

I just LOVE Networking online! Here’s a great example, our friends at Asia Garden Chinese & Japanese Restaurant https://www.asiagardenjackson.com/ came out to our nursery and enjoyed the peace and tranquility of the gardens, AND took some Awesome photos of some of their Top Shelf Creations 😊 How cool!

What a great way to spread the love of 2 of my favorite things – Waterfalls & Food 😊

 

Have a great night!

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

I’ve posted this video before, but I know many haven’t seen it & I really want this message to get out there. Talk about relaxing & a feeling of Zen! Many don’t even know that you can develop something like this at your home.

Zen is much easier to find here…

Imagine how you would use this space! Imagine the impact on your daily life… 💥

Have a Great Monday!
