Weeds can become a problem in a pond run without chemical additives. They are easy to manually remove if you keep a pool net around and compost nicely in your bin or pile of organics. Invasive species may find the consistently moist region in and around a pond an attractive place to set up housekeeping but vigilant pulling and skimming will keep any problems down to a dull roar. Barley straw is effective in ponds that have been overrun with algae or neglected. It releases hydrogen peroxide, a natural substance, as it decays which kills off the algae. Leave it in the pond for a week or so and then skim it out to prevent excess silt as it composts.
You will also need seeds. I typically only grow arugula, but you can certainly grow a mix of greens. Look for mixes that germinate and sprout at about the same time, as it is important to have uniform growth for your harvest. Mesclun mixes work well or you can make your own mixes by combining your favorite greens. If you are concerned about germination times, grow your greens in separate containers and combine them after harvest.
