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

I love beautiful sunny days! Even cold ones like today. It’s January, but the days are getting longer… Spring is slowly getting closer by the day! If you get out in the garden and look 👀 you will see all kinds of emerging plants, buds swelling, aquatic plants showing growth on the edges of streams and in the pond. It sure makes me feel good! Today is the 1st Waterfall Wednesday of 2021! So I thought I would share a simple picture of what’s coming in the not to distant future…

I’m looking forward to the coming Spring! It won’t be long now! Spring is Coming!

A simple Waterfall and stream make such a wonderful sound! It feeds much more than the aquatic plants and birds that come to drink and bathe 😊

Have a great #waterfallwednesday! From here, it’s all downhill to the weekend!

The Last Waterfall Wednesday Of 2020 | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

New Year’s Day is only 2 days away… It’s almost time to say bye bye 👋🏻 to 2020! Ive been trying to find a picture of the perfect Waterfall to post for the last #waterfallwednesday of the year.

I couldn’t decide on just 1 picture… So, I made a collage of several images of beautiful Water Features. I hope everyone is ready to move into a new year! And, I hope that 2021 will be the best year ever!

Waterfalls are my business and my passion! So trying to pick one that’s my “favorite” is impossible. They are all so beautiful and unique. So I cheated 😊 and made a collage of many beautiful images…

Here’s to a New Year! And, here’s to Beautiful Waterfalls! 💥

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

I just LOVE #waterfallwednesday! It’s the day of the week that I try to share a beautiful Waterfall that we have designed and built at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio. Many are Waterfalls that we designed and created from scratch. And others are Waterfalls that we rehabbed and/or completely tore out and rebuilt.

Check out this new Waterfall. We completely tore out the old feature and reimagined/redesigned what it could be. | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

A good part of our business is the rehabilitation of and/or the complete rebuilding of existing Water Features. So many people want and need their Water features to be more Functional, Lower Maintenance and… More aesthetically pleasing 😊 This project covered all those bases.

A low maintenance Pondless Waterfall was just what the Dr. ordered. Before, they were never happy with the looks of the waterfall and they had to add water daily to keep from burning the pump out. Plus, all their fish died…

A beautiful, low maintenance Waterfall will change your life! Enjoy Waterfall Wednesday!

Merry Christmas 🎄

Christmas Gifts for your Pets! Don’t Forget Your KOI! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I Love ALL my pets! Including my Koi! I always get my Pups a special Christmas gift – A chew bone, a sweater, snacks, a new collar, etc… But what about my Koi???

OK, our dogs Love their presents and accessories! But what about my Finned Friends? | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Franswa LOVES his scarf… Can’t you tell😊

I’ve been trying to think of a few things for my “Finned Friends”…

How about a scarf or onesie for the Koi?

I’m not sure this will work… But isn’t it cute 😊

A more practical gift would be food and snacks, but they can’t eat till spring…

They can’t eat it now, but “Spring is Coming”! You could stock up to be ready | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

A new “Koi Cave” would be a great Christmas gift idea!

A built in Koi Cave is functional & looks Awesome!

A custom stone Koi Cave or an easy to install Koi Castle is always a good choice! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

Koi Castles are available at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio and can be installed most anytime.

The ULTIMATE CHRISTMAS GIFT for your Koi (and YOU) would be a Bigger, Better KOI POND complete with a custom Koi Cave & Nightlights! Boom 💥

The Ultimate Christmas gift for your Koi (and YOU) would be a New, Custom Designed Pond with beautiful Waterfalls! Koi and Water Gardens go together like peas and carrots 🎅🏻 | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I hope this helps! When I realized I was snubbing my Koi on Christmas, it hit me pretty hard… Never again! I’m getting something special this year for my ‘Finned Friends’ – aka: My Koi!

Merry Christmas! 🎅🏻🎄

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

What day is it you ask… Waterfall Wednesday of course! Its December and everyone here at Carters Nursery is in the Christmas spirit!

Sprite, our Nursery Elf, wants to tell you that even though 2020 has been CRAZY! Christmas is ON! Santa and all the elves are busy getting ready, so take heart! Christmas IS coming!

We were lucky to have an Elf move in! He has really helped us get ready for Christmas! Come by and see us and say, HI!

Sprite has 2 rules – #1 Since he is an aquatic elf and lives in or near water, he says “Always spend time by your Waterfall”! and #2 ALWAYS keep the spirit of Christmas 🎄 in your heart! ❤️

From the whole team at Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio – Have a wonderful Waterfall Wednesday! and, Merry Christmas! 🎄🎅🏻❤️

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

Blink of the eye 👁 and it’s #waterfallwednesday again…

This weeks featured Waterfall is a newly built Pondless Waterfall Feature. This Waterfall sits on a hill flowing down toward the back patio. 🔥 It’s always nice to have a hill to work with!

We had a nice slope to work with on this project. When you look out the back windows from inside the home, this is you focal point! It’s inviting you to come out and listen and watch the birds bathe and drink. Paradise Found!

We put a variable speed pump on this feature so it could be turned up or down at will. Check out this little video below, this is at the lowest setting 👇🏻

Waterfall Wednesday is always a special day! Today is even more meaningful, because tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day 🦃 This new waterfall will be the hit and the conversation piece of the celebration 😊

Have a great #Waterfallwednesday! And –

Happy Thanksgiving!

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

Have you ever sat and just enjoyed a good fire 🔥 The sound and the flame will relax you, almost hypnotize you. Waterfalls work the same way… The splashing, bubbling and churning of the Waterfalls literally capture your complete attention and take you to a different place. That’s why I tell people that bringing a Waterfall into your Backyard will literally change your life!

This is my offering for #waterfallwednesday! Can you imagine sitting on the boulder in the forefront and feeding your Koi. Listening to the sound of the waterfall in the background is just another benefit 😊

A Waterfall is a magical thing! Especially when its right outside your back door! I hope you like this Waterfall! It’s my offering for #waterfallwednesday!

Have a Great Day!
