    What are some ways you prep a existing weedy landscape bed to get it ready for a new layer of mulch and control future weed growth?

    We usually remove the weeds and old mulch by hand, apply preen, then landscape cloth then mulch. This works but sure is labor intensive.

    Has anyone tried a combination of weedeater plus herbicide to get rid of the existing weeds?

    Spray the weeds when possible and never use the cloth in a mulchbed of living plants... preen it, after everything is dead, then add your new mulch...
