Why did I EVER pay attention to gardens with mulch? Mulch is brown, mulch is dead, mulch is expensive, mulch is labor intensive.
Evergreen spreading groundcovers take care of ME. I don't take care of them.
(This is the mature attitude to take.)

Pics taken last month in a client garden. Once shaped I walk out of the garden to view then walk/meander in the garden from all angles. Many times I need to go upstairs and look down at shaped beds.
I take my time to shape beds for groundcovers or gravel. Bedlines are HUGE to what your eye sees in a garden.
