if the beds are prepared right you shouldn't need anything.

would using something like round up to kill the grass and then tilling the soil,adding compost/ amendments be better and maybe using a preen with the mulch?

Very easy question...NONE!!! Use chemicals, organic treatments, Preen, Seven, or anything else, but NEVER USE FABRIC.

Listen guys, this is not a debate. I'm didn't post this for opinions, I posted it for newbies to understand that landscaping fabric is a COMPLETE WASTE OF MONEY and is sold 95% in retail markets for that reason.

Ask your local nursery what they think about landscaper's fabric...
