Hello, I recently had a small dam built from compacted soil. Now the weeds are starting to grow all over the banks of the dam. Should I remove the weeds and grow grass instead ? Aquatic plants of different kinds are also starting to populate the edge of the dam. Is it a good thing or not ? Lastly, how far tree should be planted from the dam and do trees provide some benefit for the dams. Cheers, Parata.
