Not sure what you are asking here. You have cleared the ground, dug out the weeds and have planned how you are going to cover and fill the area...all sounds that you are doing the right things in the right order and making a good job of it.
As you also say, glysophate is no good on bare soil but if any weeds do reappear next year you have the glysophate to zap them when they are in good growth.
You seem to have answered your own question - I think - or have I missed something ?
