    After killing the weeds and re seeding with top soil. I was wondering if there is anything else I should be doing?

    Thank you.

    I have put more seed down on the small patches dotted around that haven’t taken yet.

    I still have a few weeds on the lawn. Having recently reseeded would a blanket deweeder not be a good idea?

    I would just keep it watered in the dry spells never let it dry out. A lawn weedkiller can be applied when the lawn is established.

      The lawn is looking very healthy now, how long should I wait?

      Would a weed killer spread all over the lawn be ok or ‘point and spray’

      Pick out the weeds if you can. Sprays will leave dead spots in the new lawn.

      You used to be able to get wax weed killer sticks which you could rub into broad leaf weeds like plantain and dandelion, so it wouldn't get the grass around. I've not seen them in garden centres recently though.

      Not quite the same thing, but the same idea. Worth a shot.
