You'll need to rake out the rocks or they will become projectiles when you mow your lawn. After raking you can overseed the bare spots. When you've mowed the new grass 2-3 times you can apply a fertilizer plus weed control such as Scotts Turf Builder Plus 2. If you cannot get all the rocks out you may want to simply cover over the top of the lawn area with 3-4 inches of top soil and start a brand new lawn. Best wishes with your project!
