Question - Help Appreciated

When you guys say bed prep, what exactly does that mean for an established bed? Also, is it reasonable to do mulch first and then go back and add in plants? I have a customer that wants mulch and hasn't decided yet on what they want to plant.

Thanks!

Bed prep= removing debris and weeds, turning over existing mulch if it needs it, and giving it a clean edge.
If you have to plant after mulching you just have to slide the mulch to the side before digging hole.

It will be easier if you plant first and then mulch. Planting after mulching will make more work for you.
