Leveling area for playset

Hello. Sorry if this is not the correct forum for this question.

I am having a play-set installed in my yard this week. The area we are using in a mulch bed that we are clearing out. The mulch is a few inches above the surrounding grass as of now. Do I need to clear the mulch out to where it is level with or even below the grass? Once it is installed I will put down some type of rubber wood chip or whatever is recommended for safety. I just need to know how to get ready in the meantime. And we are having all the weeds killed with Round Up. I need to lay down a tarp as well I take it? But can I do that before the installers come? I assume they are going to dig down into the ground. Thanks for any help.

I would get rid of the mulch. I don't think that it's a good idea to use Round-UP or any other chemicals where the children will play. Dig out whatever you can. I work for a woman who has a day care center, in her house. She has artificial turf, on the ground. Home Depot has it. Buy the better grade & buy some stakes, to hold it to the ground.
