We have toads and we don't have that grass (which looks to me like some type of carex) - provide your toads with some hidey holes (we find that broken earthenware pots on their side to make little 'caves' in damp dark corners work well) and pull up the grass. You probably won't get rid of it all and it will make inroads again, but keeping it under control will work for you and not disadvantage the toads.
Toads spend most of their time on land and only need the pond for breeding - and they need fairly deep ponds for that so you'll be doing them a favour by clearing the pond at least partially
