I was thinking of just going in and rounding up the whole area, Planting my plants then mulching.

I dont need to take that dead grass up do I ? after the round up has done its job should i add soil and till it in? or is my way alright?

i wouldnt use round up. i would dig it up or scrap the top to get it to dirt . Yea its more time but the round up might kill everything in your bed. Then till it in take any big stuff out and mulch. Thats just me im a noob dont no much but just dont no about the round up idea

Round-up is fine to use but you need to make sure you wait 2 weeks before you plant. Till in some compost instead of topsoil.
