Grass and weeds - Knowledgebase Question

Is there a grass seed that I can apply to my lawn, to help fill it in, but strangle out weeds at the same time? I don't want to use chemicals to destroy the weeds.
Thank you.

It's true that a thick, healthy lawn will crowd out weeds, but in your case - with existing weeds - your best bet is to hand dig the weeds, roots and all, and then overseed the lawn. Keep it well watered and regularly mowed and a thick turf will keep weeds from sprouting.
