    Considering the roots is an important idea, so leaving the mulch there is a good idea if you can make it work... I would bid with the idea you may have to remove some in order to get your fabric to seam well...

    You thinking about yourself loosen money if he goes with rock in the Future
    Over the years notice with rock beds the plants root deeper vs mulch beds
    Myself if customer want low maintance beds Rock is way to go but if the beds are flowers then yes mulch or moss is the key

    With Rock beds you run a blower clean the beds vs mulch you cant have to hand pick stuff out
    Weeds will grow any

    I push rock all the time any more some the mulch out there cost same as rock
    Around here that is
    might have more install labor vs mulch the first year but in long run in 3 years mulch will cost more
