Early days Tony. I know it's disappointing when you've done all the prep and you feel you should have a green sward with no trace of weeds anywhere, but grass is an ongoing job. Lyn's right - a weed and feed will get rid of most of the weeds but you'll always get some seeding in from elsewhere so you just have to keep up the maintenance. If it's any comfort - I moved into this house just over a year ago. The front grass was mainly weeds. It had a feed which encouraged the grass, followed by a weed and feed, and the grass was in good heart after that. It's had another application this spring and will get a liquid seaweed feed soon just to give it a boost as it's been very dry. There are very few weeds in it now, and while it isn't a bowling green, it's nice and green and healthy.
