I'm having my small pond cleaned up and dredged. It's cleared and drained now and will be dredged mid summer. I can't plant anything yet, as the pond guy will be back and everything will get torn up again. But, when he is done, what would you plant on the dam and around the pond? I'd like to keep it something the kids can walk on easily to fish. I could mow most of it a couple times of year too. Steep part of the dam I won't mow. Want to put in something that will keep erosion to a minimum and will get going strong. Thought about clover, but that can take time to get going. Maybe a mix. Suggestions? Thanks!!
