Strange way to do it, I would have removed the mulch first.
Most "Weed barriers" do not work, weeds grow right through it and just make it harder to remove the weeds.

Yeah if you want to spray for weeds all of the time. If you do not like it, get a square edged shovel that is used when you are wanting to scoop stuff up, to get all of those rocks out of there.

Get a sheet of 4'x8' Plywood, lay some heavy plastic on top and dump all of the rocks on it, so that you can do it your way.

I agree with what was said. It shouldn't hurt anything, per se, but it's a strange way to do it.
