Smile Rocks over mulch: did my landscaper do the right thing ??

Can I put landscape rock directly on top of existing mulch, or do I need to remove the mulch first? did the landscaper did the right thing ??

It depends on what you want for a final product. Did he use landscape cloth under the mulch to prevent unwanted grass growth? What was the purpose of the mulch? Covering mulch with rock seems a little counterproductive and an expense not needed unless the mulch defines an area and the rock just decorate it.

Welcome to the forums Emily!

The only drawback I see for putting rock over mulch is it would likely take more rock to make it look nice.
