How do you add compost to the ground when it is covered with a groundcover? Isn't it a good idea to compost the area every year or so? Thanks
Is there a time of year when the groundcover is dormant? If not, I wouldn't bother. Ground covers can generally fend for themselves w/o any coddling.
Cool. So now I don't need to worry about doing that job. Thanks for your reply.
Most ground covers benefit by a light top dressing of compost.

I would like an answer to this question too, as I have lots of deer-ravaged ivy that needs help coming back. Would making a tea of the compost and watering it work?
Maybe if the tea was from manure, but it would only last until the next rain.
I've seen where deer and elk have browsed on Ivy right down to the stems. Sadly, it recovers. Ivy is considered an invasive exotic here in western Washington. I've been fighting it for years.
