Helpful Tip from the Garden Geeks: Should Ground Covers me mulched?
While mulching established ground-covers really isn't necessary, newly planted ground-covers could benefit from organic mulch. Not only with this help in deterring weeds, it also will provide nutrients as the mulch breaks down. Don't forget that the mulch will help keep your plants moist until they are well established.
If you have established ground covers, you can apply a winter mulch after the ground is frozen to avoid damage from alternate freezing and thawing thrust that can occur.
