Fabric or Not


I am planting some shrubs and flowers in front of my house. I just tilled it up and I am having more top soil brought in. Should I use landscape fabric then put the new top soil on top of it and then mulch? Some say the fabric is a waste of time... and money.

I use the fabric on top of the soil and then mulch and it does help keep the weeds down but not totaly.

A heavy duty black garabage bag will do the trick as well.
