Looking for ideas and suggestions for a shallow pond that is smack dab in the middle of the yard. Actually, it was a shallow dugout thatwasn't used for anything except a breeding ground for tadpoles and bugs! Anyway, it is only about 2-3 deep in the middle and by the end of summer, it will have receded quite a bit. Last year it was full of cat-tails and weeds so I put 10 ducks into it and they cleaned is up well. Now, it is just a shallow pond again and I have been scratching my head as to what I could do with it to make it more attractive - any suggestions?? The pond is about 15 feet across and probably 25 feet long or so.
