Questions about the Pond and Future Plans for that Area

  1. Anna-Marie Barker says:

    Thank you for all the answers. I just love the color!! Can’t wait to see the fountain!!!

  2. Kelly says:

    Love the pond! Can’t wait to see the rest of the progress on the property!

  3. Linda says:

    Do you already have electricity out there to run the pump? I was skeptical when you started this project but it’s turning out great. You said it’s a small pond but it looks like more than half a football field.

  4. Jean says:

    It is SO pretty. I was not sure what to expect because the only ponds I have ever seen are the ones nature makes and they are not clean and pretty. Not to mention a haven for snakes. ????
    The fountain will be so nice.

    My only question, does the dye stain your skin?

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      No…it doesn’t. I just added that because that is another question I get all of the time.

  6. Kim says:

    Your pond is so pretty! I never knew you could change the color of the water. The color you picked makes me want a pond instead of my pool⛲ I also never knew you could have a pond and not have fish in it that’s what has kept me from having a pond. I feel uncomfortable asking about money and I hope you don’t mind but if you wanna share how much was it? I only ask so I know if it’s even something I can afford to do.

  7. Diane says:

    I love it!!!!
    How deep is it?

  8. Jennifer says:

    It’s so beautiful! Can’t wait to see the finished project! Love everything y’all do! Makes me believe I can do it too! 🙂

  9. Sue Carr says:

    It’s so very beautiful ladies!! Congratulations!!

  10. LB says:

    Do you have an idea yet on the type of fountain??

  11. Erin says:

    This is just so amazing!!! I’m living my dream through you so thanks for being so transparent with everything!!!

  12. Kelly says:

    When the pond water starts evaporating, will you just put the hose back in? We have 17 acres in Kentucky and want to add a pond at some point soon so I am fascinated by your story!!

  13. Lily says:

    I think you’ll be surprised to find in time you will have fish, turtles and birds enjoying your pond. 🙂

  14. Sue Matheson says:

    I am so impressed with your inventiveness and energy! I also like your choices of decor. You gals are so good at living and creating livable spaces!!!

  15. Darleene Moore says:

    I love all of your projects and how you two go about getting in done. I look forward to watching how you two are making it so cozy and inviting. Maybe you will need ice-skates for Ohio deep freeze weather. Enjoy life. ????????️????️????????⛸️❄️

  16. Kathy Charleston says:

    Will the Squatters be able to swim in your pond!! Lol

  17. Myra says:

    It looks like it has a long way to go to be filled. Or are you not filling to top of rocks?

  18. Tricia says:

    This is so beautiful! I grew up with a pond across the street from our home and one of my favorite things was to ice skate on it in the winter 🙂

    So my questions are: Are you subject to any permit rules? Are you worried about the safety of your grandkids or any other kids that explore your woods?

    Thanks for sharing this cool project!

  19. Sara says:

    Just curious the cost to create the pond.

  20. Dara aka daisy_does_nevada says:

  23. Yolanda says:

    Will it freeze in the winter?

  24. Charleine says:

    Will you tell us about the fountain? Will you pond have a filter? Thanks

  25. Debbie says:

    Wow! I never knew about pond colorant. You two are amazing. I adore everything you do. I’m in my seventies now, but I worked my butt off when I was young trying to create beautiful things and I never came close to what you have accomplished! Love reading about it all. ❤️

  26. Marianne in Mo. says:

    I love that you did this just for your own enjoyment! We live in a private lake development on a 40 acre lake. Happened upon it 10 years ago while searching for an acre to build on that wasn’t a former corn field with no trees! But then we couldn’t afford it (high market back then!) Came back by 4 yrs. ago just to see how it was doing, and found a lot FSBO, on the lake, so we snapped it up! Our kids had just built a place on 5 acres not far away, and had just added a pool – yay, because I don’t want to get in our lake with fish, turtles and snakes!!! They filled their pool by having a water truck bring in water. They needed 20,000 gals. and the truck holds 5,000 gals, so he made 4 trips and it cost them I think $350 per trip. But they were afraid to use their community well and annoy the neighbors. As for why your pond holds the water – Yes, clay is almost like plastic, and water is not absorbed very well with clay. But also, the base soil was not disturbed, which is a big deal for holding water. Just like building a house with a basement, they don’t want to have soil that is disturbed or permeable, which may have voids. Sorry this is so long, and you may choose not to publish it, but I thought people might want the info.

  27. Tanya Fleenor says:

    So pretty. Can’t wait to see it all.
    What happens if the pond gets too full? Is there a drain of some sort?

    • Michele says:

      Will you use a pond filter pump to keep the water clean ? Im thinking the fountain won’t keep the water clean itself…?? Can you share approximately the dimensions of the pond ? We are planning on digging one too !!

    What is the product deb rolled out along the pond now grass is growing? I have clay soil trying so hard to keep my grass

  30. Sarah Davis says:

    Hi Deb and Danelle, first of all, you two are great. Thank you for all the laughs.
    I looked on stories, but could not find. The rolled up hay with grass seed in it, that you put around pond, where did you get that?
    Thank you so much

  31. Beth says:

    How deep is the pond

  32. Lecia says:

    Are you afraid of snakes getting in the pond. I hate them terribly.

  33. Linda Wolf says:

    I love the pond what a great addition so pretty

  34. […] because it was from the road.  But it shows our hard work we accomplished this summer.  The pond, the pond deck, the landscaping around the deck, and the gorgeous fountain that someone gave […]

  35. JR Ray says:

    The pond looks fabulous! How deep is the deepest point?
