Pond help

Hi all
I upgraded my pond last year,when we put down a new lawn. As there was a smaller one previously, the frogs have been at it this year, like theres no tomorrow!
I have around nine clumps of spawn.
Anyway, thats not what this is about!
The pond has iris,lilys,marigold and some water grass of some kind, which is pretty wrecked now, thanks to frog on frog action. I would like some reeds of some kind. The sides are steepish in places,so its tricky to get anything to settle on the sides.
Any advice,on how i can get plants to settle on the margin,without them dropping to the bottom?
Its about a metre in depth.Thanks
PS, i have a newt, Issac  :p

    I came across these when looking at pond stuff. Can't vouch for them personally as my pond is very new and uninhabited as yet, but that site seems to be well thought of generally.
