I have a yard that was overgrown It is full of weeds but has a few things like some nice roses mixed in. HOw do I kill the weeds, grow grass, and NOT kill the rose bushes all at the same time

That's a pretty tall order because anything you use to kill the weeds will affect the lawn and the roses. It might be best to dig the rose bushes and completely renovate the area. Use a vegetation killer to get rid of the weeds, till up the lawn and reseed, then replant your rose bushes. Putting your lawn on a regular watering, feeding and mowing schedule will help it grow thick enough to crowd out most weeds.
