Fabric or Plastic Under Mulch?
Are you supposed to put fabric or plastic down under mulch like you do when you lay rock down?

That's really up to you. Laying landscaping fabric will help keep the rocks from getting mixed up in your soil --- so if you or future owners of the home ever want to remove the rocks, it's not as much of a chore. It can also help stop some weed growth in the short term, but can be problematic in the long term as weeds that root on top of the fabric will become intertwined in it and harder to pull.
