companion plants are good way of diverting pests away from main plants.Marigolds,nasturtiums ,garlic e.t.c. do this well especially for vegetables.I planted garlic by my roses to keep black spot at bay and other pests or to distract those insects that go by scent to detect a plant .

true,the fish will eat the frog spawn and toad and anything else,ponds like anything else have to be looked after .You may  have to a filter or like me I just change the water ever so often.plants will need dividing and leaves removed but they are lovely when the plants flower and the wildlife come.
