It depends what your'e trying to achieve baza. Are you covering for any purpose?
Weeds will germinate throughout the winter and those under sheeting will lay dormant until you remove the sheeting.
Winter weather is good for soil as it kills off a whole range of garden pests from unwanted fungus to slugs and snails and their eggs. If you cover the soil it insulates the soil and becomes a haven for all sorts of pests and fungal spores. Soil needs to be exposed really. If your'e just worried about weeds, then weed now by hand, the soils wet and weeds will come up easily. Weeds will set seed even in winter, so getting on top of them now will cut down your weeding next year.
