I live in LV and seeded in the beginning of fall. Maybe half of the seeds germinated, so I have lots of spots. I also have LOTS of weeds. How do I reseed and kill weeds at the same time?

Most weed and feed fertilizers contain a herbicide that prevents seed germination, so it is recommended to wait until your new grass is well established and you have mowed it a minimum of 4 times (usually 6 to 8 weeks) before applying a weed and feed fertilizer. So, reseed now and wait to tackle those weeds once the new grass is up and growing.
