Green Pond

i would add a UV steriliser as algae bloom are hard to control and uv sterilisers will combat the issue then when this has taken effect i would add more fast grwoing plants algae thrives on excess light and nutrient if there are either of these present then you will get algal blooms

try added a shaded area to the pond and removeing and organic debris that could be decaying and adding nutrient

the uv steriliser will work but if the underlying issue is not resolved the alge will return

blanketweed

blanket weed grows well if there is excess nutrients in the water to combat this these nutrients would need to be removed by either changing large volumes of water (which can be dangerous to organisms and hard work) or by added more faster growing plants to outcompete the blanket weed for the excess nutrients also a filtration system would aid the break down of ammonia into nitrates which would increase the amount of 'fertiliser' in the water however the water movement would make it harder for the blanket weed to get a good foothold  all types of algae hate water movement so moving water is benificial i would

add a filtration pump to aid the nitrogen cycle and increase water movement

clear as much blanketweed by hand as possible

add more fast growing plants 

remove any dead or decaying matter 

good luck
