how do i enhance my pond?
i just bought 60 acres of land in huntington w.v. and i noticed some type of pond about 20 feet by 50 feet in one part of it. without going into a lot of money i would love to turn it into a nice spot on the property to come sit and relax at. would love to see some frogs or turtles around it or maybe fish in it. maybe even build a small pier or deck in one spot. there is a lot of weeds and brush around it. any advice on how to clean up and decorate the area inside and outside of the pond? thanks in advance!

Well, it sounds as if you already have some great ideas. I like the idea of a pier. Ponds are amazing - you will have a lot of fun. It can be a primal experience wading through a pond to clean it (make sure you have someone standing by to look out for you!)
You will find that wildlife will be attracted to the pond without you having to do much - but you can introduce fish. Large luminous goldfish would be good.
Waterlilies are amazing....very mystical, and surprisingly easy to grow.
