One method to stop weeds from growing through your groundcover is to use landscape fabric. This is a type of cloth that checks the weeds but allows rain to percolate into the soil. The fabric should be spread out, cut to size, and placed on the bed before you begin planting. Then cut small holes in the cloth and insert your plants. This method works best with groundcover types that spread by offsets or vines above the surface soil.
