I just lay the mulch on top over the old mulch 3-4 inches deep. you want to make sure the beds are prepped tho which means getting the weeds edging up the beds so they look nice, I only put the landscape fabric down if the customer asks me to. As far as laying the fabric over the old mulch i think that would be the best solution instead of taking the time and effort to remove the old much and then dispose of it.

I bet you could get a lot of different answers on this but it probably will come down to a judgement call. I wouldn't put fabric on top of old mulch. Some might remove the old mulch and some might not depending on how much time they want to spend doing it and how much they bid the job.
