Apparently, floating a few tennis balls in a pond keeps air holes open and stops it from freezing over. I dont know how true this is, but I was told this many years ago.

sadly anything you put on the grass will damage the grass underneath so bricks wont help, unless you contantly move them, but that is alot of hastle. You can make alot of impact on borders with plants, or put some of the pots or troughs on the borders, then plant around them. Mainly use pots and planters on your patio.

Potted plants and troughs are an idea, that way if you ever move you can take them with you. If you are able to grow plants from seeds is also quite good as it costs you very little and can make alot of impact.

I have had a look at this site, and although there is something to watch I was a little dissapointed by the presenters not showing you how/where to cut back in alot of the clips, the focus seemed to be on the presenter rather than down in the action. (thats most of the clips I saw)
