Small yard features under $100,000. Lol If you have a lot of money, ignore this and get a professional to do sod and Mondo….
What do you do AROUND the NORMAL feature? Grass?
Grass seed is just okay but doesn’t handle trampling. Roll on grass sheets are a little better. Still doesn’t do ok with trampling….
Sod does. But that costs a bit. Still, you can lay sod to overlap the water edge and it will do well, and obscure the edge. Almost instant gratification…..
You can also transplant native weeds and grasses. They’re used to the geography light soil and rainfall and usually hardier than sod.
Dig plugs around the yard and put them around the pond. Soon they’ll grow together and provide free, durable erosion control and beautification.

I have over ten of these Titanium Heaters in my fish room and at home. They're a paradigm shift in aquarium heating. They're titanium and 400W for under $30! Whaaaaaaaaat?
CyroPro by Hikari is safe and easy for Anchor Worms and Fish Lice.
Whatever heaters you use, back yourself up with a temperature controller, it'll turn on, and off your heaters. If your heater seizes "on" at least the thermostat will stop a tragedy.
LifeGuard by Tetra is a tablet version of a tame 'chloramine-t' or 'halamid' compound that's easy to get and good on bacterial infections, in baths.
For me, filtration-of-choice
Rubber sided, round, nettable tanks
1200 Watt heater, on a thermostat held securely above the waterline, works GREAT as a large tank heater. That's all I'll say because there's risk of electrocution and all that. But then, even in a bucket you could get killed. Sound like fun?
