    No fabric under mulch. The only time I use it is as a barrier between rock beds and the soil.

    I tell my customers that I don't offer fabric as a weed control method, just a barrier in rock beds.

    Use it all the time, even in my yard. Area where used is weed free, years later - lots of weeds where not used.

    Fabric under the mulch eliminates the purpose of the mulch.
