    I'm exhausted just watching them! My first thought "how are you going to keep that water clean?" I love how the channel is called Primitive Survival - because you'd need a pool to survive! haha!

    Wow what a job they did! I wondered why that island in the middle looked like an APPLE,lol! Me too wondered how they keep it clean? @MitchM has his work cut out for him! Maybe hire these guys?

    I’d love to have the strength these two showed to dig that! My pond would be done.

    No idea what the plant was, but I wondered as well. I wonder what they used for the walls and if it’s going to stand up to time and weather. There were a lot more videos along these lines. They must have the easiest soil to dig in, that’s for sure!
