pond and mozzies

I'd like to put it a pond but am hesitant because of the mozzies it would breed. Unless there is a way to keep them out of the water? I would like to attract frogs and other creatures and would have water plants in it as well.
Any suggestions?

Hi, Have you thought of putting in some goldfish,koi or little native fish, as they will eat the mozzie larvae for you! All the best Seedy!

Hi there, their are a few different fish species that you can put into your pond that are mozzie eaters and are frog friendly(won't eat the eggs etc). 3 such fish are the pacific blue eye, white cloud minnow and guppies. I Hope this helps!
