Debris in Buddy Seats

Hi everyone! Man, the sun is out here in TN and I think I'm going to take my first (frigid) dip after the mowing the yard this evening! Speaking of mowing, grass clippings and debris... We have a free form, in ground, kinda kidney/lagoon shaped pool. On one side in the deep end we have some buddy seats where debris always seems to get trapped. It stays on the surface for a while but if I don't tend to it, it drops down in the seats and starts to accumulate. Any strategies to keep the water flowing through there? Or is that just a symptom of having buddy seats? I've increased pressure to the buddy seats jets but I can only angle the jets a little bit... Even then, not sure if I should be trying to aim at the surface or down into the seats. Just curious what the rest of you thought about it. I wonder if I changed the direction of the pool's returns if that would help?

Thanks, @ajw22... I guess that would help! Also just realized I don't have an eye on two of my returns. One of them has never had an "eye" on it... But it's labeled as "hose" on the valves. I think previous owner had a robot vac maybe?

Please ignore the mess... the yard... the collapsing rabbit hutch... the general need for pressure washing. They're all on the to do list! I only recently finished battling (with the help of you fine folks) this monster:
