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

This past couple of weeks tested us all a bit. Winter in all its glory… But now Spring is in our sights! And believe it or not, it’s coming quickly! So this morning I wanted to try to reassure you a bit with a video from early Spring last year. We are only a few weeks away from when this video was taken 😊

I can’t wait till I get to feed my babies again! And I can only imagine what they are thinking right about now…

Enjoy this little moment of zen! And just know that – Spring is Coming!

Having a Waterfall Feature in your backyard truly gives you 4 seasons of interest. Each season brings its own magic 🪄 late yesterday evening this little video was taken of my own personal Waterfall. I LOVE every season, but the ice sculptures of Winter ❄️ are just plain Magical!

I hope this video brought a little Zen to your morning!😊

Have a great day! Stay warm!

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

Good Monday Morning! And “Merry Christmas”! 🎄🎅🏻 Only a few days left before the big day and tensions are running high… Here’s a little something that always helps to lower stress and tension for me – A Waterfall!

The mossy stone, the natural driftwood and oh that sound… All I have to do is sit down with my coffee and sip while I listen to the waterfalls splash and gurgle and all that tension just melts away. It’s the best Sound Therapy that I know of! Can you say Zen…

Have a wonderful day! And a very Merry Christmas 🎄

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

The Christmas season is upon us! And, if your lucky, the Christmas Spirit is coursing through your veins 🙏🏻🎄🎅🏻 If not, if the Spirit of the Season’ hasn’t touched you yet… Watch this short, simple explanation of what the meaning of Christmas really is all about 👇🏻

I don’t know about you, but it’s not really Christmas until we watch this 😊 Crazy how a little cartoon from years past carries so much weight!

Nothing like a little ‘Nostalgic Christmas Zen’!

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

It’s the last day of November 😳 Tomorrow we enter December, final month of 2020… I need to take a moment to let my mind catch up… A little moment of Zen will help 😊

We just finished this one up and plugged it in. This beautiful Pondless Waterfall will provide years of ‘Zen’ for the new owners 😊

When my mind gets cluttered or I need to slow down for a few minutes, I go out by the Waterfall and sit in my favorite spot and just listen. Within minutes, I feel the relaxation wash over me and I feel better. It’s Amazing what a little old Waterfall can do for your piece of mind 😊

Have a great Monday morning!

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

I just heard it was Monday morning… WOW! Already?! Got anymore of that weekend… 😂

In the Halloween 🎃 Spirit, here’s a little video I took for y’all a few days back. The water in Kentucky Lake is down to Winter pool, which exposes lots of beaches and banks and little island areas for birds to land. I just happened upon a large group of Buzzards 😱 They were hoping around and eating something… I drifted up toward them quiet as possible, I even killed the engine as you will hear in the video… It’s kinda funny, the second I pushed the record video button, they jumped and started flying off 🦅

But they didn’t go far. Watch as they circle and start landing in that big old dead tree in the distance… A “Buzzard roost”.

Question : Do you know what a large group of Buzzards is called?

Answer: A Wake…

Have a great Monday Morning!

Happy Halloween 🎃 👻😱

A beautiful Monday morning in the Fall. A time when we all need a moment of Zen…

Southing sounds… I can sit and listen to my Waterfall for a few minutes, and something happens. I feel relaxed… But energized! My stress level goes way down & my mind comes back into focus… It’s almost magic how it works every time 🌊

I hope this moment of Zen helps you to have a Great day!

October Moment Of Zen | Carters Nursery Pond & Patio

Sometimes a moment of Zen comes after a problem has been resolved or a goal has been met. Today I wanted to send a simple message to those ‘Pond Lovers’ out there who are dissatisfied and want to re-do their ponds and Waterfalls…. WE CAN HELP!

I have been designing and building Water Features succesfully for over 30 years I am serious when I say that I will make yours Dreams of a Beautiful. Low Maintenance Water Feature a REALITY!

This is another “Pond Gone Wrong” that we redesigned and rebuilt for a client! How would you like this by your back patio?!
