can anyone help

I would like to encourage frogs and toads into my pond. I have had a pond for about 2 years but never seen a frog or toad anywhere near the pond. The pond is a preformed fibreglass one with very smooth sides so i can only assume that frogs cannot get in or most importantly get out so my question is can i put a tree branch or a large log in the pond to help them in and out of the water or will it rot and contaminate the water?

i have noticed despite the cold weather new shoots are still appearing up out of the ground, so to protect them from the everlasting cold weather we are having at the moment i cover them with a home made cloche ,i take a coke or any plastic bottle and cut the bottom off and place it over the new shoot this seems to do the trick .hope this is of use to anyone
