that is the dumbest thing i have ever heard (unless there is way too much mulch and is damaging plants) just throw it on top, I will be surprised if one person tells you to remove the brown.

Put it on top, why do the extra work. Even if it means more money, I wouldnt do it because of how stupid it is.

The only question that is stupid is the one that goes un-asked.

I don't see my answer up there. You need a third choice: Put down new brown!

How anyone likes that crappy McDonalds mulch is beyond me.... It's just tacky, plain and simple. Throw in some plywood sillouhettes (sp?), some gazing globes, and a plastic pre-formed fountain, and you've got a good 'ole landscape thar Earl!

But seriously, just put it over the old.
