I have a request to overseed a lawn that is about 50% weeds and 50% grass. Should I kill off the weeds now and try to overseed 4-6 weeks from now (or next Spring) or slit seed the lawn now and weed it later?

I have already started the overseeding process here in Wisco. The weather has felt like fall for a couple of weeks now. The seed has been washed in and shouldn't have a problem with drying out.

Later, after the annuals weeds have died, the final step is to spray the perennial weeds b4 dormancy.

If it were me... mow short, seed, then in October, weed.
